Close Up: Giant Rabobank Team Replica Road Bike
Giant’s Rabobank team replica, which we announced in a previous post (with more specs), uses a full Dura-Ace drivetrain and Shimano PRO cockpit components. Ã‚Â Wheels are Dura-Ace carbon. The frame uses an SL carbon build up, giving it a different frame shape than the non-SL TCR Advanced road bikes, most notably with a less aero-shaped seat tube and sort of reverse curve behind the headtube, which you can see compared in that aforementioned previous post. Click the images to enlarge.
The downtube is big and square, and unlike the TCR Advanced, this one gets an integrated seatpost.
