Engineered to climb, corner and descend, this legendary pro road machine does it all, and does it faster. Power up steep climbs. Attack twisting descents. Edge out rivals in heated sprints. The TCR Advanced SL has earned its reputation as the ultimate all-around race bike. This is the lightest road frameset ever produced by Giant, and it boasts the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio of any road bike on the market. The new Variant integrated seatpost delivers an improved ride quality for more comfort on the longest, hardest rides, and the Advanced SL-grade composite frame makes the most of its proven Compact Road Design.

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.
