Hi Luca,

I would gladly receive indications of the right size of the new bike I would like to buy.



Height: 178 CM

Crotch height: 87 CM

Arms length: -

Racing or amateur position: --


The correct size for the GIANT TCR ADVANCED racing bike is M, even if it is at the upper limit for this size, but ML would be just large.

Between the two measures, therefore, the lower one is to be preferred, both because it still falls within the optimal range for its measurements, and because it is the one that would require fewer adaptations.

Ultimately, as it is assembled by Giant, it is perfect for you, given that being just small, it will not force you into an elongated position, your torso will be slightly raised, and there will be no problems with the saddle moving backwards.

It should be added that you could insert some spacers under the handlebar stem, even just 1cm, and have an even more comfortable riding position.

But there shouldn't be this need either.

Overall, therefore, size M is excellent for her.

Beautiful bike, among the best ever of 2023.
