    How does it climb compared to a "climbing" bike (or a TCR)?

    How are the brakes?

    For me great, very powerful even on the carbon rims. Possibly not quite as much "feel" as a set of dual pivot calipers but that's all.

    I believe the earlier Propels had brake issues (although haven't had one so can't confirm that) but Giant released an upgrade to them which also allowed 25mm Tyres (as the rear cable used to rub on the top of some 25mm tyres) and the later ones (certainly mine and my club mates) have no issues at all

  4. Never tried a Tcr. It certainly climbs better than my Defy... And responds quicker on the flat.

    My new Giant, 2 days old, apologies for the crap quality.

    A bit of sun (with minimal power) near Shoebury Garrison, southend on sea.

    It's appeared on this thread once before (during the summer when it was new), but here's my TCR Advanced 3 out in the wilds just the other day:

    Nice bike, I'm slightly freaked out by the metal reindeer behind it though.

    I'm happy with the several additions I've made and it will probably be staying like this for the foreseeable future. I may add some Ergon grips though.

    He liked it when I bought it but he's not got it yet. He lives with his mum and was ill over Christmas so coming to me has been delayed. He'll get it on Saturday. I'll let you know what he thinks then.
