Giant Revolt Advanced 1

Anybody know how many bottle cages the Giant Revolt Advanced 1 can hold? I can see two on Giant's website, but can't see the downtube area very well. Hoping there are more! Also, does this bike come with tubeless rims?

I have an Advanced 2. There is a third under the downtube, and it is tubeless.

Awesome! How do you like ride ride quality? Looks like the geometry is very nice.

As mentioned, one under the downtube, that's where I carry my repair kit. Absolutely love my Revolt, rides great, on and off road.

The ride quality is excellent. On the roads, it whoops my Domane though it's much slower. On the gravel, it's pleasant but I'm still learning what a gravel bike should feel like. Overall I'm happy and it's a lot of fun.

The wheels are heavy. It rolls well, but it isn't quick to get up to speed on the road. Different wheels would do a lot for it. One day...

Thanks, me too! The 2020s had already come out, but I wanted that orange, which turned out to be a 2019 only color, so I grabbed one, love it!

I think that bike might look great with some tan/brown bar tape and tan sidewall tires.

Update- I bought a pair of carbon wheels from a guy and they've transformed it. It's now the fun, grab-and-ride-it bike that I really wanted. Highly suggest!
