What bike is this?

Post by bigjim »

Does anybody know what model of bike this chap is riding.? I know it's a Giant but it looks like a touring bike. Something I thought Giant didn't do.

Yes, TCR springs to mind. That colour scheme was quite common on 'em.

Don't think so. The early TCR was race orientated with a straight yellow fork and I think at least Tiagra shifters. His has mudguards with a black curved fork and Sora shifters

Hi
I don't know if this helps; the top tube has the word "green" on the silver decal

Is it just the front brake that is a V-brake ?
