Hey, looks very nice, photos are good too and most of all I'm glad you enjoy riding it, these frames are seriously overlooked by many people who never tried one but really are great fun to ride. Seeing it finished makes me want to find time for mine even more, and seeing the finish you got with auto paint is making me think of getting another old TCR I have painted by my friend who's a car sprayer. You made a good choice to go for the black handlebar tape and saddle combo, white only looks good for the first few rides anyway. The overall finished appearance is very well balanced, in my opinion for the saddle you should try to get a nice condition Selle flite Ti, like I'm using on my build, it'll look the part and keep the weight down. I also recently tried compact bars for the first time and agree, yes they are excellent.
Anyway, while I'm here I just thought I'd share photos of this TCR I picked up at the weekend, the finish is strangely similar to yours, you can just make out the Giant logo on the down tube, it has a tiny ONCE logo stamped into the headtube, just visible in the last pic.
Thank you. Yes, I really like the final result, a few changes will be made, but general looks will be the same. Paintjob is really great, I will try to post a few better quality pics as soon as the Sun decides to come out, these do not do the bike any justice. I am going to fit a Selle Italia Catopuma, a friend of mine has one for a really nice price, I think the saddle has great design and excellent weight (160 grams). This saddles comes as standard equipment on Pinarello Dogma bikes.
And thank you for sharing your new TCR frame. So cool! Color looks really similar to mine and I love the seat clamp details, as well as headtube and subtle logo on the front. That headtube with integrated headset looks massive.
