" Light and stiff with excellent acceleration "

The Review
Upgraded from a Caad8 early this year and there was a noticeable difference in performance. While the Caad8 is a good bike, the TCR Advanced Pro 1 is on another level. It is stiff when accelerating and maintains speed well. I bought it with the new Easton EC90 Clincher wheels which are fantastic and seem to be able to roll forever.

The only issue i had was with the Giant Contact Saddle which was too stiff for me but other than that, i love this bike.
