Giant TCR Carbon Gold
TCR Carbon with 24 carat gold plated components and Campagnolo Record groupset. Number eighteen of only thirthy-five ever made, and one of only six thought to have been brought to the UK. A true collectors dream machine, with low weight (15.5lbs) and performance to match.
Concieved way back in 2001 as a way to promote Giant's commitment to performance road bikes (as if the creation and development of the ubiquitous compact road geometry wasn't enough!) The TCR Composite with gold plated campagnolo record components finally got off the drawing board in 2006.
Born out of early discussions between Giant's Tom Davies and ONCE-Eroski team manager Manolo Saiz, the TCR Composite Gold was a crazy idea that thankfully got followed through and came to fruition. The idea was a way to make the fantastically featured and way ahead of it's time TCR design stand out even more as a truly elite option.
Manolo Saiz, ONCE-Eroski directeur sportif: "I've always said that the bike is an extension of a rider's personality, just like the tennis racket is part of a tennis player, and the TCR Composite Gold is no exception. We should never forget about combining the aesthetics of athletic experience with the experience itself. Here is one way of doing it. This isn't just a tool, of course, but it's not because of the gold that it's the best bike in the world, either. It has other qualities as well."This project is also a source of inspiration. Every year we should try and do something equally special, not just in 2002. But it was clear that for the mechanics and for myself the best time of year to do it was after the season - this is like any Christmas present, you can't just have one at any point in time."Creating these bikes has been a beautiful operation, and a very special one.
"It's an elegant, classy model, but also as we know from the Tour de France, an extraordinarily successful one as well. That level of performance makes it even more satisfying a project."
A classic, competition winning TCR with exclusive, 24 carrat gold plated Campagnolo Record components. Very special and very hard to ignore if you love excellence in road bicycles.
