    New 2013 Giant TCR 4 ?

    I have a LBS with a new 2013 TCR 4 sitting and I think I could get it for around $1,500 plus tax this is the Ultegra 10 speed year but at some point they stole the crank off of it and put a new Dura Ace on it.
    Funny thing is I have a new 6800 Ultegra groupset I bought a year back when a friend bought a new giant and removed it and put Dura Ace on his new Giant so thinking I could put the 6800 on it and sell the 6700 and of course keep the dura ace crank on it. It is 5 years old but? seems like a nice Giant.....Opinions?

    5 years long enough for a gap of technology emerging. I am talking about frame or wheels except your drivetrain. Seriously you should check other new models on the market. $1500 leaves lot of options.

    I agree with Braavos, plus you can get a new 2018 TCR with 105 5800 for around the same price if you search and/or do some haggling. It might be 105 5800, but it will be better than Ultegra 6700, and it will be easier to sell the group, since it is a more modern 11 speed gruppo. 105 is the workhorse of the Shimano line. Heck, you might not be in much of a hurry to swap the components after you ride it.

    IMO, 5800/6800 is a vast improvement over 5700/6700.
