Wow a very affordable composite bike. I have put over 700 miles on this bike including the Trek Across Maine and have no complaints with it. It is very responsive to the road, handles very well in everything you ask of it and is a very nice ride. Giant has given the little guy a taste of what the big guys use on the road at a fraction of the cost. This is my second Giant road bike and when ready for the next upgrade I will stick with the bicycles this company has to offer.
I have a Giant MTB and love the way they size their frames. I've wanted a CF frame for a while now and decided to stick with Giant. I'm only 6-0 but I bought the XL frame (recommended for 6-3+ people). I LOVE IT. I have more leg room than I know what to do with and the weight of this bike is uber light and quick. It's a little rough on bad roads and the seat is acceptable but I will replace that. Bottom line - this is a great bang for the buck bicycle if you want a carbon composite frame. It also comes with a decent set of tires that many road bikes do not.
