YL’s Giant TCR Advanced SL 1 ISP

YL's TCR Advanced SL 1 ISP

This week has been a bit hectic. I’ve got a customer, YL, who’s got a race next week in Singapore and he needs to have his new bike, a Giant TCR Advanced SL 1 ISP, in order to race. We just received his bike on Tuesday and managed to ship it off today, on Thursday.

This is how we received his bike on Tuesday

The bicycle is stock. It comes with SRAM Red and a Fulcrum Racing Zero 2-Way Fit wheels. I really like it. My own Giant would have to be either the TCR Advanced SL LTD with Di2 and Mavic Carbone Cosmic Ultimates or this TCR Advanced SL 1 ISP.

The SRAM Red component group and the Fulcrums are a great deal on this bike. One of the best I can offer. It also comes with great finishing kit from Giant (Contact SLR stem and handlebars). Everything is carbon fiber. Package comes complete with wheelbags from Fulcrum, Fizik Arione CX braided saddle, and Schwalbe Ultremo R1 tires.

We needed to ship this bike off quickly so that YL had the bike for his race. It was a bit of the challenge. Luckily, Taiwan Post came through for us. It left today and will arrive in 3-5 days. This was a very quick turnaround. We placed the order on Friday. The bike was on its way to our shop. We received it this Tuesday and it was gone on Thursday.

In my haste, I forgot to take photos of the complete bike before it was packaged for shipping. One thing’s for sure, this bike is crazy light. It’s almost unbelievable. Send me an email at asteriskcycles at gmail dot com or visit Asterisk*Cycles to get your own TCR Advanced SL 1, or any other bike that we have in stock. Any others can be easily ordered.

    Allo Range,

    Thanks a lot for the bike. Indeed shipping was crazy fast, posted on Thursday I received the first box (wheels) on Friday after at my door step, the other one (Frame/groupset) due to some Tax verification by the Singapore customs I got it on Monday.

    I assembled the bike Monday afternoon; I’m very satisfied with it. Looks great, and the bike weighs……6.95 kg (Medium) with Look Keo Carbon and the Cateye Speedo, no bottle cage yet. INCREDIBLE!!


    I send you some pictures of the complete bike if you need them.
