Presenting the new 2014 Giant Anyroad 2. The Anyroad bikes use a brand new frame for Giant. The point of the new design is to combine the comfortable riding position of an endurance-road bike with the wider tire capability of a cyclocross bike.

Here are a couple more shots showing the beautiful frame construction. Notice that Giant have added an internal seatpost binder. Another interesting part on the Anyroad models is the second set of … Continue reading

The aero seatpost mast is very narrow, as is the juncture between the seat tube and seat stays. These sections make for a comfortable riding frame despite the stouter tubing found elsewhere. The careful positioning of the rear brakes keeps them … Continue reading
