I'm pretty new to road cycling- so new in fact that I don't have a bike yet, I've been riding ssfg and posting there for about a year. I tried searching the forum, but I couldn't find any mention of it, so here's my query:

one of the shops here in Philly has a 2008 Giant TCR C2 in my size, and I've kind of got my eyes on it as a graduation/birthday/hanukkah present. Anyone here ride one or can give me any info, or comparison to my other two choices should someone else buy it first?

The other two bikes I'm contemplating if it gets sold before the money's available: Trek 2.3 and Specialized Allez Elite (or Comp for 2010, since its the same model apparently), any comparisons/thoughts worth taking into account besides the dominant frame material and difference in groupo? I'm 6'4" and ride a 61-63 depending on manufacture, and I weigh between 190-195.

Edit: also looking at the Felt F-75.
