You can trust Cycling Weekly. Our team of experts put in hard miles testing cycling tech and will always share honest, unbiased advice to help you choose. Find out more about how we test.

We tested the Giant TCR Advanced Pro 0 as part of a four bike shoot out which also included the Specialized Tarmac SL7 Expert, BMC Teammachine SLR Two and Scott Addict RC 15.

Each bike was tested with its stock tyre, and a control tyre (Schwalbe Pro One TLE, 25mm), using the same test loop which covered 32 miles and included ascents and descents of Leith Hill and Box Hill in Surrey. The other reviews and final conclusions will be published in Cycling Weekly magazine, on Thursday April 29.
