Giant TCR

I bought this frame from one of our Canadian Cousins across the hall. Quite a tricky build with internal routing/old cables. Needs a longer stem, which I have coming from the 'bay. Ground or me is slightly tilted, saddle is level. Ultegra 11 stuff with Shimano wheels. I am no lightweight and neither is the bike at just under 20lbs. Gravel King 26mm tires barely clear. 2 hour shakedown ride over Paris Mtn yesterday proved it is as folks say, quick, solid, smooth. I've paid a lot more for frames that didn't ride nearly as well. Coming off a BMC steel road frame, this thing feels like a rocket. I didn't cut the ISP totally straight, got the saw a bit crooked on the guide, but hey I didn't hear any creaks yesterday so ride it I will. The headset is particular to the frame, and finding a lower bearing=new headset altogether. Otherwise, good to go once my new stem comes in.
