Giant TCR Advanced 2

FOR ANY RIDE ON ANY DAY

As the world's biggest bikemaker, Giant uses its pricing power to spec a Shimano Ultegra component group and its own P-SL1 alloy wheels, one of the best we've found on any bike at this price. But the magic is in the carbon-fiber composite frame, with a massive down tube that adds snap and verve to accelerations. The geometry is tailored to provide neutral, responsive steering – paired with a tapered fork, it slices corners and bombs descents with laser precision. Trust us. [$3,050; giant-bicycles.com]
