What’s more exciting than spending a co-op in San Francisco California and purchased a Giant TCR Advanced with upgraded parts? This road bike is extremely light, carbon fiber frame, latest generation Ultegra 11-speed shifters giving me a healthy upgrade to a mid-range ~$4000 bike.

I brought my Shimano SPD pedals from Canada, and the rest of the components are Shimano Ultegra including brakes, crank and shifters - with the exception of the groupset which is Shimano 105.
