Giant TCR Advanced Pro 1 Road Bike Review2017
At we are looking to present the products we stock in their best light; each run of items is given its own space and is never pushed into a corner. We have tried very hard to pick our brands and products carefully in order to keep our range of products limited to those which firstly fulfill their purpose superbly and secondly offer what we feel is the best choice at each price point. Everything you find on our shelves will have been endorsed by one or another of us and it would not have made it there if we were unable to see its value. We feel that every customer should have the same exceptional level of service; we want you to be able to draw from our many years of experience both in the bicycle industry and out on the road. Between us we ride thousands of miles every week, some of us as endurance or pleasure riders and others of us who enjoy racing and pushing our physical limits.
Giant Bicycles need no introduction. The last few years has seen them hone their production process and produce more of their finishing kit in-house. Controlling those processes allows them to squeeze more value out of their bikes. The TCR is between the aero Propel, and the comfort oriented defy. Advanced Pro models are between the top level SL and entry level Advanced. Pro 1 is, you guessed it, the middle of Advanced Pro range. Of particular interest is the Giant SLR 1 carbon clincher wheels.
By Simon Withers. The TCR is one of the longest-standing designs in road cycling, and though a lot has changed since its birth in the mids, its creator, British designer Mike Burrows, would probably still recognise his work. As with some of the original models it comes with an aero seatpost, which Burrows considered an important part of the aerodynamics armoury. As is often the case with Giant , the TCR scores immediately with its components. Shifting and braking are faultless, and it shaves a few grams compared with its slightly lesser stablemate. This contributes to impressive control, quick and precise whatever the circumstances. Its stiffness and more compact frame make for a rewarding climb, and it descends with nigh-on perfect control.
Fans of the previous TCR generation will be glad that the geometry of this new TCR has remained very much unchanged though with a couple of performance tweaks made. Aimed at being an all-rounder race bike the TCR has a compact wheelbase and a lowish stack height, biasing the rider's weight down and forward onto the front wheel for a powerful pedalling position and aggressive cornering stance. The Advanced SL uses Giant's premium carbon and features an integrated seatpost. The Advanced Pro and base level Advanced share the identical frame and carbon grade, with the Advanced receiving a more basic fork alloy steerer than the Pro full carbon. The generation TCR has gone on a dimensional diet of sorts. Most of the tubes have reduced in diameter and the Giant engineers smoothed off many of the angular edges featured on the old TCR. Sharp corners typically collect resin and have inferior compaction when compared with smooth curves; the new frame shaping uses less material but builds a stiffer structure.

Why Giant? Two main reasons. So why did I choose a TCR specifically? Easy answer to these ones. Weight and mechanics.
