For sale is a 2015 Giant Propel Advanced SL2 full carbon aero road bike, which is in superb condition. The bike cost £4050 new.
This is a fantastic high-level road bike, which is extremely fast and responsive. The Propel is Giant's aero carbon road bike range, and the 'SL' models are the premium models of the range. Therefore, this bike is an ideal choice for racing, triathlons, serious training or any form of competitive riding. Once again, this 'SL' model is not to be confused with either the entry level 'Advanced' models or the 'Advanced Pro' models lower down the Propel range. This bike has a lighter, stiffer and stronger frameset, resulting in improved levels of performance.
The impressive specification includes a Giant Advanced 'SL-Grade' full carbon frame (with weight-saving Integrated Seatpost), top-of-the-range Giant SLR-0 deep-section aero carbon wheels (these retail at £1500 alone), and top quality Giant finishing kit, including Contact SLR carbon aero handlebars and a Contact SLR carbon stem.
The bike cost £4000 base when new, an indication of its very high quality. It is also fitted with Look Keo clipless pedals and a full carbon bottle cage. In total, as mentioned above, the bike cost £4050.
We would mention that the bike has a superior specification to the 2017 model, which retails at £3600 base. The wheels on the 2017 model are Giant SLR-1, and not Giant SLR-0. The SLR-0 carbon wheels are professional-level wheels, and are a £500/600 upgrade over SLR-1. Other downgrades on the 2017 model are the handlebars and stem, which are Giant Contact SL alloy, rather than Giant Contact SLR carbon. In effect, you would be looking at spending around £4500 to bring this year's model up to the same level of specification as our 2015 version.
The bike is in superb, near mint condition all round. It is riding extremely well, and looks fantastic, having only been ridden around 750 miles from new. The condition is genuinely superb, and this bike is not to be confused with many other used examples which have had more use, and therefore have cosmetic/mechanical issues commensurate with this. We feel sure its new owner will be delighted with it.
As you would expect, the bike is very light at only 7.5kg including pedals.
The frame size is Small, so the bike is most suitable for riders of 5' 5" to 5' 7". The bike has an Integrated Seatpost ('ISP'), however there is scope for adjustment of the saddle height. The current saddle height can either be lowered slightly by cutting the seatpost down, or raised slightly by fitting Giant 'ISP' spacers (a complete set of these will be provided). The bike is also fitted with a Giant RideSense unit in the chainstay, which can be linked via ANT+ with a suitable computer device, such as a Garmin.

We have had a passion for road cycling for many years, owning and enjoying many different road bikes, from steel to aluminium to carbon fibre. With previous experience working in a bike shop, we now have a small family business offering for sale a selection of high quality used road bikes. The majority of our bikes are within three years old, and from the top manufacturers such as Trek, Giant and Specialized. All our bikes are thoroughly checked over for safety and function, and are in very good to near mint condition, and all ready to ride!
We are based near York. If helpful, we would be happy to meet a buyer in central York, close to our storage facilities. Also, we would be more than happy to arrange a meet at York railway station, if this helps with collection.
