Looking at a Giant any road 1 as the next addition to the stable

It ticks a lot of boxes. Room for big tires, internal cables, interupter brakes as standard, 10 speed tiagra 11-34 and a nice little 'compact compact' up front. Not going to win races but a general purpose bike its cost is low, and I think its bang for buck factor is high. Anyone played with one?

I have the Anyroad 2 as I wanted the triple. I love it. Very, very comfortable

I think it has great potential as a Brevet/commuter/weekend bike. Fast enough but not as jarring as a pure roadie. Still has drops so you have more flexibility than a hybrid or a modded mtb. Also at 12kg for basic offroad ability its relatively light as well.

I put 700x25's on mine for the time being. I will switch back to the 700x32's in the fall. It's a fun bike and I get lots of questions about it.

Do you think they'd take 42mm tires?

Always been kind of jealous of this bike... I got the Roam XR1 a year before the AnyRoad came out. But in some ways I would prefer the AnyRoad.

Anyroad 1 (2014) | Giant Bicycles | United States

too much top tube slope to actually be useful as a CX bike when you may have to shoulder it for a run up,

But as a mix of a Hybrid already selling assembled with drop bars , seems OK. US version is a 34 48 double

You may be able to read the pages for their Korean distribution .. http://www.giant-korea.com/

Just out of curiosity, are you looking at the Revolt 1 or 2 as well? Kind of curious about geometry differences between Revolt and Anyroad.

I think so. There is a lot of room at the fork and rear stays.
