This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Having already bought 2 bikes this year I'm not allowed any more but this one is almost worth getting into trouble for! The full Ultegra Di2 groupset is worth £1150 on its own (Wiggle) making this a pretty solid bargain for a high-performance road bike.

Giant make their own carbon frames (if that matters to you) although this doesn't have a full carbon fork - you have to step up to the Pro range for that. Resale values are solid rather than spectacular but I'd wager this will keep it's value quite well due to the Di2 gears.

The PA2 wheels aren't anything to write home about but hey, it's winter, save some £££ for the bling summer wheels or ask Santa very nicely.

Worth noting that they have a few other cracking deals on the site (Giant TCR Advanced Pro 0 - DuraAce, Carbon Wheels £2.5K)

Forgot to mention:

Doesn't come with pedals
I'd expect an engine for that price
You can buy a car for that
Cyclists should pay road tax like the rest of us
Something about stopping at red lights

excellent price and unlike so many good bike deals lots of sizes available.

Been looking at them but, like you, would need to attend a self defence course before delivery. Have a giant defy advance 1, that has
  • Chainrings - 34/50
  • Cassette - Shimano Ultegra, 11x34

Anyone know how much % difference in difficulty getting up the hills compared with the Advanced pro 1 with
Chainring 36/52
Cassette 11x30

Voted hot btw

TIA

Depends on the gradient. I run a 52/36 & 11-28 and 25-30% inclines are noticeably tougher but less than that and it's business as nomal, the bigger gears are great for the flatter sections. Just get your legs sorted for those steeper segments.

Ran 11-25 and swapped to a 11-28 = night and day up hill climbs. 52-36.

"Noticeably tougher" and "night and day". Hmm thats what I thought, could always change the cassette I suppose. Making it tougher on some of the hills around here, Sunny North Wales, is not an option for me Will probably wait until Canyon have a sale in a few months or another giant defy next year, want discs really anyway. Cheers.
Will post if I ever find the calculator- can calculate % difference in "difficulty" for gear set ups.
You can always change the lower ring too. Find the BCD/check the front mech spec and chain length.

Unless you are a strong hill climber, you’ll want compact 50/34 with a 12-28 cassette. I used to train with 52/36 and 11-25. Switched to higher cadence to keep up my club run lol. See what cassette the rear mech will handle - will be less flaffing.

I know some riders with 32/34 cassettes or CX 42 cassette and a single 44T chainring.

I bought my 2017 Giant Defy Advanced Pro 1 from Pedalon last Christmas and posted the deal on here, great bike with Ultegra hydraulic disc brake groupset and Giant's excellent SLR1 carbon wheels which are £800 a set.

Just saw this on their site if you're a M/L in size £1699. (BTW I'm 6 foot and got the M/L)

Thanks but I'm a medium
Bump seeing as it's back at this price.

I can't find anything else anywhere near this money with current gen Ultegra Di2.

Thanks for spotting it's back to life. Cracking bike for the money - especially if you really want Di2. A lot of people are after discs these days but I don't see the point unless you ride a lot in the rain.

I saw this deal at the time and ever since I've not seen anything remotely comparable. I realise bikes at this budget are a fairly niche market but I'm amazed they're not sold out in all sizes. The TCR is a very highly rated frame. Perhaps it's the lack of discs as you say, or maybe because it's not clear from the specs that this is the latest R8050 groupset. Could be the yellow!

It's just a pity I'd be a small and so it'd cost me about £75 more to buy one (elsewhere).
That's assuming I can justify it anyway.

On one hand it's a massively OTT purchase when I'm riding indoors over 90% of the time, plus Di2 is a huge uplift in cost over 105. On the other it's a proper investment, a bike I could keep for a long time to cover all manner of riding.
Really great price. Interested if 2020 will see a new iteration of the tcr, as its long overdue.

I doubt manufacturers will put much R&D into rim brake frames. All about discs now.
