As always full of news is that the stand Giant for 2016 has many new features.
Despite the name and general aesthetics, Giant has completely revised its flagship TCR, leading to a completely new bike.
In the photos below the new Giant TCR,
Team Giant Alpecin uses also in 2015 the frame Giant Propel, a very rigid and aerodynamic frame and therefore preferred by sprinters.
Team Giant Alpecin uses bike Giant TCR Advanced SL; a frame since time on the market and unchanged compared to the one used last season, except for the graphics.
I reply to all those who ask me in private many personal considerations on bikes that I test, unfortunately you are many (thanks!) and I can not answer at all. Fortunately, you do all the same questions .... To which I gladly reply:
I would buy this bike and why?
The bike no, too heavy, the frame is good
Defects? The weight and the assembly
What would you change? All components
What upgrades would you do? First, the wheels
Is it a bike for races? No, because heavy
Is its performance competitive? no
What is the main advantage of Giant compared to direct competitors? I do not know
I want the bike with the best price-performance ratio, is Giant okay? No, at least with this model.
The Giant TCX is carbon fiber monocoque frame with tapered headset and disc brakes.
As tradition, after seeing the news of the range in 2015, let's see what can submit Giant in 2016.
Many innovations by Giant for 2015.
The frame Avail 2015 follows the same technical development carried out for the model Defy 2015.
