Carbon fiber is cooler that a popsicle in a snowstorm, we all know that. Its got that cool weave thing goin’ on, and it’s light right? There’s a lot more to this fancy material than that. Who better to know than Giant bicycles.
Giant is the world’s largest bicycle manufacturer. Not only do they make a tonne of bikes, they start from from scratch on all of them.

Whether its a Defy Alliance 1, or a TCR Advanced SL 0 Giant manufactures their carbon for frame production from a spool of thread! When looking for a road bike you might not being thinking of who actually made the bike that you are looking at, but you might be interesting in knowing just how well its made after reading the bicycling article. If you are concerned about your health, you probably want to know what goes into the food … Read More »
