    2013 Giant TCX W

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I just brought one home today (ordered Tuesday morning and it arrived Wednesday afternoon ). I don't plan on racing, just as a bike for doing less than ideal paths/trails, especially for my bird watching. Anyone else here have one? What are your thoughts? I'll take some pics when the sun returns to Michigan.

    thanks,

    Congrats! I've looked at it, and it's a nice bike.
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    Here's a couple of pics. Sorry for the delay but DH made me wait to take them until the grass was mown. You'll note that the stock Fizik Donna saddle did not make it home from the LBS. It was the first saddle that when I sat on it I knew it was going to be torture! I prefer a Jett or a Ruby anyway. Availability dictated a Jett for this application. A couple of reviews indicated that this bike is one of the ligher CX bikes. With cages and M324 pedals it weighed in at 20.5 lbs. Not bad. A very good ride. Time to go for another quick spin.

    Ooh. Very pretty. I might have to see if my LBS has a small I can test ride...

    Very pretty! I really should not be eyeing CX bikes since I just got a road bike! I am a sort of bummed about not being able to ride it on gravelly paths though, because we have some great trails here that go from paved to gravel and I don't know what's beyond that since I ended up turning around. Congrats on your new bike!
