    Finally made the move and got a Giant TCR Advanced SL with Industry nine I45 wheels!

    I posted here about a month back asking if I should make the jump from my Cannondale Six 13 to something new, and I finally made the move! I had a the opportunity to send my Industry 9 wheelset back to Industry 9 due to some spokes breaking, and I upgraded to the new I45 wheelset from Industry 9, partially due to their generosity So far I'm very impressed with the wheelset quality!

    The Giant rides slightly stiffer than the Six 13, overall, it's a bit of an upgrade, but not really a world of difference for the riding that I do. It is a bit lighter however, so I can't wait to climb some actual hills with it

    Sorry about the poor lighting in the photos, I only had 10 mins before i had to head out for the group ride today.

    Bike looks great.

    I've liked that bike. The simplicity of the design/paint/decals gives it a nice look. I am torn between the black frame you got and the white one. Both look nice.

    Thanks! I like those two colour choices. I've seen black/red, black/blue and both are just too flashy for my liking.

    The TCRs ride pretty nice, I really have no complaints about mine.

    congrats, very pretty with the i9 wheels.

    though aesthetically, the frame pump is a bit disruptive :P

    Thanks for the complements everyone! I know the pump is ugly, but it has saved me and a few other people's ride. It only takes 20 pumps or so to get up to 80psi, which is great in case someone gets a flat.

    Nice ride!
    I have a 2011 TCR also.

    I like it very much but I find it a little too stiff on rides over 50 miles. I was thinking about a Super Six for 2011. I may be going exactly where you just came from.

    Any comparisons on long rides between those two frames?

    Edit: Opps. I thought you said Supersix and not Six13.

    Funny I was looking at exactly the same two bikes, a TCR Advanced SL and a Super Six high mod.

    The guy with the TCR had better communication, so I went with the TCR. I think the two bikes will ride pretty similar, and the TCR eats up road buzz as well as the Six 13. I would imagine the Super Six is similar in that aspect.

    Oh, have you looked into a tubeless setup? I find my tubeless setup with the Stan 340 rims is really smooth over rough pavement
