Two Giant models win Bicycling Magazine's Editors' Choice

Two bikes models from Giant Bicycles received the top Editors' Choice awards by Bicycling Magazine.
In the "Entry Level Road Bike" category, the Giant Defy 2 gets the nod. The testers said:
"The Giant [Defy 2] just cruises along, steady under pedal input, never penalizing you through a broad power range."
"As smooth as it is, it's still a sporty bike with good responsiveness and a lively feel."
"Smart move by Giant outfitting the Defy the 25c tires because it probably played a part in the velvety smooth ride."
Another feature that we especially like is the compact double (50/34) crankset, which gives you the low gears you need for climbing Northeast Ohio hills, with the simplicity and weight savings of a two-chainring system. We've got the Giant Defy 2 in stock in all three Century Cycles stores, so stop in for a test ride, add take one home for only $999.99!
In the "Women's Road Bike" category, the Giant TCR Advanced 1 Women's was the top pick. It features a carbon fiber frame and fork, Shimano Ultegra drive train and brakes, and a "versatile mix of speed and comfort." Other comments from the Bicycling testers:
"Has a sprightly demeaner and aggressive positioning, but was still comfortable and stable."
"Has a light and lively feel...and the sharpest wheels [Mavic Ksyrium Elites] of the bunch. And the position is quite comfortable."
"Jams along well on flat, feels responsive on hard rides and turns nicely."
The Giant Women's TCR Advanced 1 W is available by special-order for $3,399.99.
