2019 Giant Line-Up: Online and Headed To CBS
August 1, 2018, 12:00 am

It used to be that the 'new' bikes would be announced in August, and then riders would have to dream, salivate, and lust over next year's bikes all winter. That's changed, and we couldn't be more excited! 

Giant just announced their 2019 line-up, with some new models, revamped lines, and different specs for the new season. The best part? You don't have to wait long to squeeze a brake lever or take a test ride. 2019s are shipping soon, and we'll see many of these new models on the floor at CBS before summer is over! 

We've always been big fans of Giant for a lot of reasons, but one of the best things about them is their ability to offer a wide selection of build and adapt to changing technologies. If a new drivetrain comes up, they're always quick to adapt that to one of their proven models, as well as carry of what's always worked into what's new. 2019 is no different, with more options between rim and disc brakes on the road, more wheel size choices for mountain, and plenty of commuter, fitness, and even eBike options for those looking to zip around town. 

You can check out the full 2019 and remaining 2018 models right here. There are a few new 2019s we want to make sure you take a look at below. While it's tough to pick just a few, we tried to limit our list to one road, one mountain, and one gravel build we think is the best value. 

Road. Propel Advanced Pro Disc. It just doesn't get any faster. For Northern Michigan, aero truly is everything, and if you're looking to get a bit quicker, a dedicated aero bike like the Propel is the way to go. From Old Mission rides to the big days in the County, you can save a few watts with the right frame and wheelset. What we really like about this version of the Propel is the new disc option; ride your race wheels spring, summer, and fall without ruining your braking service in the gritty shoulder seasons. 

MTB. Anthem Advanced 29. When Giant offers a carbon frame, that's what you get. Most second-level full 

suspension bikes get an aluminum rear triangle, but that's not the case with the Anthem Advanced. You also get Fox Float 32 SC and Float Shock, plus a bombproof and silky-smooth SLX 1x11 drivetrain. 

Gravel. TCX Advanced. Bang for your buck, you can't beat the lightweight, burly, and well-spec'd TCX Advanced. This is about as perfect a gravel or cyclocross bike as you'll find for Northern Michigan, with Apex Hydro brakes and Apex 1 drivetrain. X-Sync is key for a 1x, in our opinion; the same shift ratio means you can easily swap out the ring or cassettes sizes to suit the ride of the day or the next race on your calendar. Grab a 46t chainring and you've got a road bike; stick with the stock 40 and you're ready to rumble in the woods or between the tape at cyclocross event.
