Giant TCR Advanced 2
Bought a year ago and been in my house (pi**ing my girlfriend off) ever since.
Work and life has gotten in the way of this bike ever being ridden. Selling it before it loses any more value.
Absolutely mint (spec as per sold), never been ridden. Fully built and checked by a Cytech trained mech before I took it home. Assuming if you're reading this you know how good this frame is. Multiple award winning - I rode it at a Giant Industry Test day and fell in love. Smoothest, most comfortable racing ready frame I've ever sat on.
RRP Was £2250 - currently cheapest on web: £1550
I'm finally taking the plunge to trade up from my trusty Lapierre Audacio 500 (Shimano 105 triple groupset) and get something more suitable for my second year of club racing, a few time trials and possibly one two sportives. As you can see, it's an all round machine I'm after ... finances dictate that no time trial machine is being bought (this year anyhow). One of the criteria is that it has to be a double groupset (tried compact on my winter trainer and they just don't suit).
We’ve been surprised by the Giant TCR Advanced 2. In a good way. To be honest, I was expecting a solid, workmanlike machine, but not necessarily any fireworks. Something that ticks all the boxes, covers the bases, does the job… but perhaps not with a great deal of flare. What I got is a fast and lively bike that’s smooth-riding too. It’s right up there among the best in its class.
