Lycra wearing Lance wannabe I hope I'm still riding when I'm 80.

Great article. And Giant does make some nice bikes. when I got back into cycling after a 19 year layoff my first bike was a Giant.
CEO of a company uses their product. I read about Mike Sinyard of Specialized and he still does group rides and listens to the people as they talk about what they want in a bike.

We were a Schwinn Dealer back when Giant was producing for Schwinn and other dealers mocked the joint venture. Giant definitely has the last laugh.

Glad I got my Giant Propel Advanced SL3 since now the Advanced line starts at $9,800. One fantastic riding bicycle.
