The Giant Contend 1 is a new model for 2017, but it looks like it’ll be our most popular entry level road bike from the get go. Giant is the largest manufacturer of bikes in the world, and all that buying power allows them to bring a killer bike at a price we’ve never really seen before, especially with the kind of parts the Contend 1 comes with. The Shimano Sora 9 speed group has been updated for 2017, and brings a lot of elements of higher end components down to a lower price. If you’re looking to get into road cycling, or just want a faster bike for commuting to work or zipping around town, the Contend 1 is a great place to start.
We have two of these left – a Large and an Extra Large.
