It came as a surprise when I checked up the specs on the Taiwanese Giant TCR Advanced 1; it comes with SRAM Force and Fulcrum Racing 0 2-Way Fit wheels, which is an unusual combo. I expected the bike to have Fulcrum Racing 3 wheels, but that isn’t the case.
At $4,100 USD, that makes this bike a great deal, especially since it comes with wheels that sell for $1,550 USD. The other bike from Giant that used to come with these wheels was the TCR Advanced SL 1 ISP from 2010, one of our best sellers.

Ever since I started road biking again last year, I’ve wanted a pair of Fulcrum Racing 0s. I don’t know what it exactly was. It was probably because I had never seen red Fulcrums before, and in my mind, they would look stunning with a matte black frame. For 2010, the rims changed colors. The initial appeal for these hoops is the look. Hoops that are completely red are rare. This is the start of a long term review on these wheels.
One of the main reasons for Campagnolo to release the Fulcrum wheels was to tap the market of bike enthusiasts using SRAM and Shimano components, who weren’t keen on buying Campagnolo brand wheels.
That being said, the Fulcrum wheels are equivalent to some Campagnolo wheels, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t excellent. This year, the Fulcrum Racing Zeros come in a 2-Way fit version, meaning that they can accept tubeless and clincher tires. An easy way to differentiate the 2010 model from the 2009 model is the fact that this year’s model’s rims aren’t red, they are black.
