Can You Identify This Bike?

Postby bjr7537 » Tue Sep 17, 2013 6:02 pm

Hey folks,
Any ideas exactly what model of Giant this bike is? Guy selling here http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/GIANT-TCR-1-compact-super-light-super-fast-road-bike-/251053390050?ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:AU:1123 states it is TCR 1 Compact but I can't any info/pics in Giant archives from 2007 which matche this picture (sorry can't figure out how to attach pic!). Maybe a 2006? The fork doesn't look like other TCR models I can find.

I'm a newbie and considering buying it for my first 'real' RB. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!!

And thanks to BNA for this site!

That's a very old TCR, about a '99-2000 model.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.

Thanks mate. Yes, I just finally figured it out myself. 2000 model. Guy's trying to sell it for $1,199! Says it's 4 years old :/

Cheers.

To quote a well-known local movie, "tell him he's dreamin'!"

For a bike of this age - especially carbon fibre, I recommend inspecting it before buying.

Regardless of material you'd want to inspect before buying. But not in a fit would I contemplate paying remotely near what the seller is asking.
