After riding a bike for almost a year, it’s quite refreshing to hop onto a new bike. After selling my BMC, I decided to give the 2013 TCR Advance another shot. This specific bike is outfitted with Ultegra 6700, a compact crank, along with with my favorite Fizik saddle. I’ve been riding the Giant for the last couple of weeks and I was pleasantly surprised with the ride. Compared to my last Giant, it seems smoother and offers slightly better handling.
