Standing for ‘Total Compact Road’, the TCR has been in service for twenty years now. It was one of the first road bikes on the market to feature a sloping top tube and a compact frame design, which results in a longer seatpost length than conventional frames. Giant’s theory behind this was to increase flex and vibration damping through the seatpost for more comfort, while allowing the frame to be built stiffer and lighter. Compact frame geometry has since been copied by many others, and it’s now a distinctive feature of all Giant road bikes. Nowadays, the Giant TCR is a common sight out on the road, and for good reason. With a ride quality that balances light overall weight with excellent power delivery, the TCR is the ideal all-round race bike for those who enjoy a bit of everything, and particularly climbing.

The TCR Advanced Pro models sit in the middle of the TCR range, with a high-tech T-700 carbon fibre frame and a full carbon fibre fork that draw tube shapes directly from the top-end TCR Advanced SL frameset. This technology includes the beefy Overdrive 2 head tube and press-fit bottom bracket shell, which help to translate your Watts into prompt acceleration at the rear wheel. The TCR is built with race-oriented frame geometry, which is actually identical to the Propel aero race bike. This makes the TCR highly responsive to steering inputs, with the ability to carve tight lines around the apex of every corner on the racetrack.

There are two rim brake models to choose from in the TCR Advanced Pro range, with the ‘0’ sitting at the top of the tree. Looking for more braking control and all-weather dependability? The TCR Advanced Disc is a new addition to the range, and offers smooth hydraulic braking courtesy of Shimano’s excellent disc brake system. Whichever way you go, there’s a TCR to fit almost every privateer racers budget.
