Giant SCR 1 Road Bike


When I went to inquire for an entry level road bike, this is what was recommended. With a price range of RM2,000 - RM2400 it's a budget bike. The frame is made of alloy and the fork is a mixture of carbon and alloy. It is fitted with Shimano Sora 9 speed gears. The weight of this bike is approx 9.8 - 10 kg which is considered a bit towards the heavy side. To make it lighter, we add some money and change the seat post, stem and handlebar to from alloy to carbon.
I took it out for a short ride, and it does feel comfortable and the ride is smooth. I don't have to stretch my hands too much and the seating is almost upright. As conclusion for those who want to get a budget road bike, this could be one of the available options.

  2. You can find it in any Giant Retailers or Bicycle shops that display Giant signboard.

    It's a beginner road bike for those who just want to enter into road bike riding and don't want to spend a fortune.
