If any of the following statements are made during your weekend ride with friends, carry on, this TCR Advanced 1 Disc may be for you.
“It takes so long to get out of town these days.”
“Have you ever noticed this little road?”
“That’s really more of a path, than a road.”
“Let’s go check it out.”
We won’t go through the complete list of technologies that comprise the TCR (See the .PDF at the end of this article for that) although we will highlight a few, and of course, lament the name. TCR Advanced 1 Disc? How utterly uninspiring. That’s a name that belies the beauty of the bike. It’s a name that’s more technical than emotional. A name that seems to be based solely upon numbers and math.
On the other hand, we suppose that’s Giant’s job. Their job is to sweat the technical details, so that when you hit the gravel roads outside of Lyton Springs, you have an emotional response.
