Can anyone recommend--or not--the Giant OCR Tourer.  They stopped making them in '05 but I have the opportunity to buy a new '04.  Sounds great with Shimano 105 and disc brakes etc.  Really would like some input.  Thanks for any info at all.

I bought mine last year and put about 2500 miles on it.  I took a couple of short trips (400 miles) pulling a BOB trailer and it worked just fine.  This is my first road bike so I don't have a comparison to make, other than a mountain bike.  One downfall is I've had a hard time finding front racks.  Which the BOB takes care of.

Reply to Giantman: The Tubus "Tara" low-rider fits like it was made for it, and is rock-solid. To Overthenexthill: I've got the same bike - it's a pretty good ride. Initially, I liked the idea of the internal cable routing, but have since thought that I like the idea of visible cables, which would be more straight-forward to replace, if need be.
