I still have my 2016 SLR2. I've since converted to a SRAM 1X setup and am loving it.

Digging up the old Toughroad thread. 20,380 miles and I had this happen:






I was told to go to the dealer, they want to check it out for the Lifetime Warranty. Iíll be heading there today. Weíll see how things go!
ETA: I have to admit, thereís a side of me that wants to clean up the area, TIG it and hit it with clear coat, and wear the scar!

So much for it being Tough.

I think they discontinued this bike. I no longer see it available on the Giant website.

Toughroad SLR is unavailable in the US, but it's still available in other markets AFAIK.

Over 20k miles in 5 years is impressive. I will be even more impressed if Giant warrants this and provides a replacement frame.

Not so certain that Giant had this kind of usage in mind when selling this bike in the U.S.

Yeah but other markets are small compared to the U.S. market.

Sure, some are, Europe's not and it's still not discontinued in those markets.

Giant have taken away model years on some websites and we haven't seen any new bikes here in Korea yet, but they did recently remove the discontinued Expressway models from their local website, while leaving the Toughroad SLR.

I have to admit, thereís a side of me that just wants to clean up the crack, have my buddy TIG is, hit it with clear coat and keep on riding it!

I still have my TR SLR1 from 2016, done more than 10k km on it and still rides very nice. Just did a touring trip this summer on the Danube from Linz to Vienna with my wife and our two boys, 8 and 10, we rode 330+km in 6 days, wonderful times, great bike paths and very nice places to visit. I did change the handlebar to a A frame one and I love it for it's comfort.
Pictures are from other rides.

No, Giant covered the frame with their warranty!

The old black frame:







The top photo is one of my last rides with the old frame.

The new frame, which is silver.

I also decided to make the shakedown ride on the new frame worth while.

WOW! That is impressive not just that they covered you for a bike that was well used, but that they replaced it so quickly! I would have thought it was going to take months before they replaced this, but that was only 3 weeks.

That is really good to see Giant is this committed to their customers. Heh, I had read about my new bikes, Scott Bikes and they are not as committed. 3 yr frame warrants, 5 if the owners take the bikes to the shops annually for costly tune up.

Going to pay more attention on warranties with my next bikes!


EDIT: Oh and by the way, the silver is a nice color. In my opinion, you got a really good deal on this.

I have to admit, Iím surprised about the quick replacement too! It wasnít quick enough to stop me from buying a Revolt Advanced!

The 2022 models have just been released, in Australia and at least one Asian market.

The SLR1 is looking pretty good, but they're both quite nice.

Same bike as previous years just different colors.

Still no thru axles and no carbon option. I'd be all over that bike if it was available like that.

I'm struggling to see the green?

Giant calls the colour "Metal" and it looks like a browny/grey colour to me.
