Details

The most efficient race bikes have the perfect balance of light weight, stiffness and smooth compliance on the road. The TCR Advanced delivers on all three, making it a versatile performer for competitive road riders.

The Advanced-grade composite of the TCR Advanced frame manages to shave every gram possible—without sacrificing its pedal-stomping stiffness. The OverDrive steerer system and MegaDrive downtube are engineered for the precise handling so you can rail corners at speed. And the Variant seatpost is engineered for an ideal blend of efficiency and compliance—so you stay fresh until the finish on those big days in the saddle.

    Still tweaking position on the bike gradually and that's going well. Have had more chances to do hills with it now...and I'm also faster on hills with this bike. A note about the 4 stars instead of 5 stars. I'm taking one away because of the wheels. On the plus side they are very robust and don't seem to really hinder the bike. On the minus side, they're heavy. Portly even. I know its a pretty standard wheel-set but there are much better options out there. I suspect that swapping them out for some Easton wheels will turbo charge this bike.

    Added this bike to the stable about twelve days ago and have ~400 miles on it since then. My other road machines are a bit more recreational and the Giant has completely ruined me for them. They will all have to find other homes. IN the short time I've been using it, I've been impressed by the TCR's ability to hold a line at high speed on descents. By its relentless ability to seemingly convert all the energy I put into it, into forward motion. By the fact that it does not beat me up on longer rides while doing this. I also find that I'm suddenly winning sprints on training rides which has been a surprise because I never win sprints on my other bikes. Anyway, I think there is much to like about this bike, and I just might buy another one.

        Comments:

        This TCR fell short of my expectations. The ride is very compact and I felt an aggravating pain surging through my wrist. The ride itself is uncomfortable because of the compact positioning of the bar and seat, which is due to a design flaw that had been discovered after it came to market. The price is not unreasonable, but I`d put more stock in endurance riding comfort. Stay away from this one.

          This bike is a great product by Giant. I was looking Felt F4 but this is a better bike. Felt (for me) is too rigid and my test ride doesn't to comfortable. Now with Giant I feel that I'm in other level... I have only one word for this bike... Awesome
