Giant Omnium 2010 M
The Omnium is a serious track bike. We’re not being liberal in the use of the word ‘serious’ either. It’s not street legal: the front fork hasn’t been drilled for a brake. If you’ve got a craving to race down in San Jose, this is a great way to get out on the velodrome. A wide down tube makes it both aerodynamic and stiff as a board. It comes stock with a tough set of aerodynamic wheels that are ideal for riders who haven’t managed to be showered with sponsorship opportunities and need something that will last until they are.
Look 566 2010 XS (Complete) and Medium (Frame)
Look’s 566 is modeled after Roubaix style touring bikes. It’s a relatively upright ride that is designed to keep riders comfortable in longer-distance races. This means a shorter top tube and more relaxed angles throughout the bike. The frame itself is impressively light and supple. Riders who are considering the 566 should keep in mind the fact that frames generally run small. Depending on torso/leg proportions medium is generally ideal for a rider between 5’4” and 5’7”.
Giant Avail Advanced 3 2011
The Giant Avail series is the women-specific companion to the Giant Defy. The Avail Advanced 3 is a full carbon frame equipped with a decent set of components for entry-level non-commute road riding. The frame is an upright touring design that is ideal for long-distance racing but is also a great bike for riders who are looking for a nice road bike that doesn’t stretch you out too far and lets you keep your head up and take in the scenery. A compact rear triangle means that the bike is stiff and efficient in the climbs. The Avail Advanced 3 is equipped with a predominately Shimano Tiagra drivetrain which is a durable but smooth group set that is usually seen on high-end commuter bikes or steel-frame touring bikes.
Giant Avail Advanced 2 2011 S
The Avail Advanced 2 is upgraded from the Avail Advanced 3 with Shimano 105 components. 105 is best classified as a training day group set because it is light enough to give the rider the benefits of an unencumbered ride but is still durable and ultimately more affordable when it comes time to replace parts that have worn down. A handful of other static components on the bike add up to create an altogether lightweight ride.
Giant Defy Advanced 3 2011 XS
was:$1870 now: $1680
Giant’s Defy line is designed to accommodate a wide range of riders who are either racing long distance or simply prefer a more upright ride. Giant’s compact frame design helps keep the ride supple while still providing lateral stiffness for climbs. The Advanced 3 is equipped with 105 components for race-worthy smooth shifting that won’t blow the bank.
Giant Defy Advanced 3 2009 XL
was:$2150 now: $1700
On the other end of the sizing spectrum, this Defy has been lurking in the shadows of the shop for far too long. It gives the rider the same upright ride and comfort benefits of bikes by the same name from later years. A Mavic wheelset is an added benefit of buying bikes from the days of 09 when manufacturing companies weren’t as motivated to tighten their belts by reducing input costs.
Giant Defy Advanced 2 2011 XS, S, M, L
was:$2470 now: $2295
Probably one of the best value bikes at the high-end. The Defy frames are upright, designed for long distance racing or sustained rides. Throw a credit card in your jersey and take it from SF to Sonoma. The Defy Advanced 2 runs a 105 drivetrain that combines with a set of DT Swiss 1800 wheels to give you a comfortable, reliable and smooth bike that is still shy of 19 pounds.
Giant Defy Advanced 1 2011 S, XL
was:$3100 now: $2790
With a Shimano Ultegra group set and DT Swiss 1800 wheels, the Advanced 1 is the top of the Defy line in 2011. Performance features, like the PowerCore bottom bracket for optimal pedaling stiffness, are blended with a road-smoothing, longer wheelbase and taller headtube. It’s the best of both worlds.
OCR Composite 2006 Women-Specific XXS
The OCR line was the precursor to what would later become the Defy and Avail models. More geared toward distance riding, the frame is upright, lightweight and soft on bumpy surfaces. This particular OCR is equipped with 650c wheels as opposed to the standard 700c for a bike that gives smaller riders a more true-to-form fit. A combination of a light, upright frame and reliable quality components means that the OCR would be a great bike for the Aids Life Cycle.
Giant TCR Composite 2011 XS, S, M/L
was:$1870 now: $1680
Say you are a mountain biker with an arsenal of nice bikes already, but all your coworkers at the new job are spandex-sporting roadies who never stop geeking out on Pinarello Dogmas or the new Look 695. Even if it doesn’t seem like the most enticing way of spending an early morning, it’ll help your career to get out there on group rides with them. The TCR Composite is an entry-level carbon frame that bridges the gap between high-tech and affordable. Foregoing some of the more complicated carbon weaving and welding techniques, the composite frame gives you an excellent sprint geometry with the stiffness and suppleness of carbon. The catch is that it adds a bit of weight, a half pound or so (skip the burrito before the ride). It’s equipped with Shimano 105 components that keep the weight off and won’t break the bank when it comes time to replace the cassette and chainrings. Whether it’s your first road bike or you’re just looking for something to hammer on and keep the miles off your precious Dogma frame, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at what the TCR has to offer.
Giant TCR Advanced Custom Build 2004 L
was:$6000 now: $3000
A legend in its day, the TCR Advanced is built with a geometry similar to that which helped Jan Ulrich make Lance Armstrong nervous through all those years. The long toptube and shorter headtube put the rider into a more aggressive position that is ideal for aggressive sprinting and criterium racing. It’s done up with a classy pair of Dura-Ace shifters. The Ultegra drivetrain is light, smooth and strong. A pair of R500 wheels bring the total weight of the build up to a meager 17.5 pounds.
Giant TCR Advanced 2 2011 XS, S, M, L, XL
was:$2470 now: $2220
The 2011 TCRs are built with speed and stiffness in mind. An oversized bottom bracket coupled with asymmetrical chainstays gives the rider unparalleled lateral stiffness. A tapered headtube helps put power where it’s supposed to be in high torque sprints. The bike has a relatively aggressive geometry that puts the rider into a position to maximize all muscle groups in the legs and minimize drag. 105 components give you an entry-level race group set that keeps shifting smooth and weight down. The TCR is a bike made to tackle the long climbs of the Pyrenees and reduce the early-morning climbs of Conzelman Road to an exercise in feigned humility.
Giant TCR Advanced SL 2 2011 L
was:$6300 now: $5670
SL is Giant’s acronym for super light. The professional-grade frame is Giant’s lightest and builds upon the technology of the TCR Advanced, adding a mega-drive downtube, a stiffer bottom bracket, and weight-cutting carbon welding techniques. An integrated seatpost drops a barely notable forty grams in comparison with the standard adjustable seatpost, but what’s more commendable is the smoother, improved ride quality. The Advanced SL 2 is equipped with a top-of-the-line SRAM Red groupset that gives the rider quick, smooth and precise shifting. The bike is a venerable rocketship designed to make the most of every bit of effort you put into it.
Giant Trinity Alliance 2 2009 M
was:$1650 now: $1200
The Alliance fuses the lightweight suppleness of carbon around a stiff aluminium core. It’s an otherwise highly aerodynamic frame made for triathalons and time trials. The components are tuned to accommodate time trial riders who are more concerned about maintaining cadence than the rapid shifting required in crit racing.
Giant TCR Advanced Team 2009 M/L
was:$6000 now: $4200
As seen in the Tour d’ France. Enough said. Wait, you could add that it has a full Dura-Ace kit, is built around a top-of-the-line frame, and the ISP makes it a well-tuned race machine.
Giant TCR Adv SL 3 2011 M/L
was:$4200 now: $3780
The Advanced SL 3 is built around the same high-quality frame as the other TCR Advanced SLs but delivers it with Shimano Ultegra; arguably one of Shimano’s best combinations of longevity and low-grams. An adjustable seatpost makes resale or indecisiveness less of an issue.
Giant Reign X2 2008 L
was:$2100 now: SOLD
The Reign X2 is a heavy duty all mountain bike designed to take big hits. Coiled rear suspension gives the rider nearly seven inches of travel in the rear with an adjustable Marzochi 55 Bomber fork up front. A relaxed head tube angle gives the rider added security when attacking steep and sketchy downhill sections. Take it to Santa Cruz or Pacifica, it’s the wrong kind of bike for Marin and Mt. Tam.
Santa Cruz Tallboy 2011 17″ (M)
was:$6396 now: $5800
Riding this bike is the closest thing to cheating without actually cheating. Santa Cruz’s virtual pivot point full suspension is already world class. Combine this with the 29” wheels and you’ve pretty much eliminated the threat of anything jarring you the wrong way on the trail. Hell, why even ride trails anymore? You’re starting to think like a roadie! One good reason would be that you would dominate the competition. Oh yeah, and it’s a carbon frame.
BMC Promachine 2009 61cm
was:$2400 now: $1790
The Promachine is one of BMC’s more aggressive geometries. Four flex points on the frame mean that it’ll give where it needs to: vertically. Every other fiber in the bike is designed to make the ride laterally stiff, note oversized chainstays, downtube, bottom bracket shell and all the hard-working nanotubes you can’t even see. This particular frame is probably ideal for guys who revel in innocuously referencing visits to Big and Tall.
TCR Advanced Ultegra Custom M
If Bruce Wayne suddenly became environmentally conscious in his crime-fighting forays into Gotham City he might defer to the TCR Advanced. This particular model has been thrown together by our mechanics as a top-of-the-line competition-worthy build. The frame is designed to climb, sprint and avoid inconveniencing the rider with excessive grams. The Mavic Cosmic Elite wheelset gives the bike aerodynamics and levity for the lone wolves out there who can’t always rely on a peloton. The groupo is full Ultegra, Shimano’s second-from-the-top, which may give you just enough of an excuse if you lose.
BMC Promachine Custom 53cm
A limited edition of the 2010 Promachine, We’ve built this model up with Topolino Kevlar wheels which aren’t the stiffest wheels out there but do make for a very comfortable ride. We rounded off the bike with light and smooth Shimano Ultegra components.
BMC Racemaster Hincapie Edition Custom 54cm
George Hincapie’s victory in the 2009 US Road Championship was inspirational if for nothing more than the unflinchingly patriotic paint scheme. Not since the days of American Flyers have American cyclists been brazen enough to unflinchingly advertise our own Stars and Stripes so boldly on our kits and bikes, thankfully Bon Jovi has also relieved us of inspirational numbers from the same era. In any case, BMC reproduced Hincapie’s frame for the masses. An aluminum core that spreads from the bottom bracket to midway through the seat tube, downtube and chainstays gives the bike unquestionable stiffness layered with the supple ride of carbon throughout the rest of the frame.
