Product Details

2016 Giant TCR Advanced SL 2

Giant's TCR Advanced SL 2 is your do-everything rig, from long days in the hills to downtown crits. Expertly crafted from Advanced SL composite, the less-than-2-pound TCR Advanced SL frame has been tweaked for weight savings, speed, and above all, ride quality. To accomplish those lofty goals, this refined rocket boasts an integrated seatmast, an oversize bottom bracket for efficiency, and a MegaDrive down tube, along with tapered head tube housing a full composite fork for lateral stiffness with razor-sharp handling. And the components are equally as impressive; Shimano Ultegra brings you pro-level shifting at a feathery low weight while Giant's composite SLR 1 wheels and aluminum handlebar and stem help you fly uphill.

    Comments:

    Weight 3.5 stars not the lightest bike but not the heaviest either a bit better than most Handling 5 Stars this thing handles like a dream corners I usally speed for I don't on this hard to believe there is better handling bike Acceleration 5 stars the bottom bracket is stiff and it has no flex, stiffer is faster when you increase the watts all that effort goes to the tires. It begs you to get out of the saddle and hammer up climbs and sprint for the stop sign. Ride comfort 3.5 stars it is a race bike and its not designed to be comfortable but its not bad either but if you expecting Defy or Synapse level of comfort its not there. Value 5 stars This is where is score big time PRO PELOTON level of performance with out the fat wallet cost. Best bike for the Money. The Cons are the ISP (intergrated seatpost) which well make it hard to transport and the limited stem choice if you want to change that out luckely giant makes stem just a light and stiff as the next guy.
