    TCR Advanced 1 Disc vs TCR Advanced Pro 1 Disc 2021

    Hi guys,


    First post, I am glad I joined such a great forum.


    I bought tcr advanced 1 disc 2021 and I still have an option to pay extra AUS2.1k to swap it with advanced pro 1 disc 2021:


    StackPath ... -disc-2021


    StackPath ... -disc-2021


    Alternatively I can keep the bike and spend extra 2.1k to buy new set of carbon wheels. I would buy deCadence wheels below, 49mm deep, 1400g heavy. Which option would make a better bike overall? Which bike would be lighter?


    Your thoughts would be much appreciated.


    Thanks

    It doesn't look like there is enough difference between these two bikes for you to pay for this "upgrade". Both have Giant wheels which are rebranded generics.

    Personally, I would just ride the bike as-is for now and possibly do a wheel upgrade in the distant future if you really have a wallet burning holes in your pocket.

    OP... Lombard can't ride drops and keep's his seat height even with the bars.
    Indeed, an avid obsessive forum poster, he rides and recommends
    big frames, tall head tubes, flipped positive stems... comfort and upright position fit.

    I really think a TCR is not in his realm of road bike riding. It simply is not relational to his ability nor interest.

    And Rudge, you're nothing but a lame troll who can't write worth squat. Since when is "keep's" a word? You need to go back to the 5th grade and learn not to put random apostrophes on words. Do you really expect anybody to take you seriously if you can't learn very basic writing?

    Ok Lombard grammar's your think...
    Some folk's want to ride.
    When you give them reasonable advice, I'll be the first... to butter your bun.
    But for this new poster asking about a TCR, and looking at your limitations as a rider and the bad advice you've recently given.... Train Wreck #3

    Lombard provides good advice pretty much all the time. You...on the other hand...really don't contribute at all, and you can't write worth a ****.

    Grammar's my think? Not only can't you spell, you also mix up words.

    And you stay away from my buns you perv.

    Glad you noticed it too. He was trolling in the General forum section as well. I believe hes possibly a BMX twit who has gotten lost. Lol.

    That would explain his tendency to recommend frames that are too small.

    Twatwaffle also tried to contribute in the Apparel/Clothing forum. I don't think this was trolling, but just a stream of conciousness.

    The Op specifically mentions TCR.
    Lombard is physically incapable of riding a TCR; nor can he comprehend its performance, ride quality, or handling ... That's the F'In point !

    What you say here is totally irrelevant to what my advice was. You should go back and re-read what I posted. I suppose you think he should ride an ultra-small frame too, right?
