Maybe the nicest aero frame until now.

Stem! It's hideous!
The rest not bad.

not a massive change but a few interesting things to note, the internal routing on the fork leg (different from the current crop of tcr disc's) Internal routing on the bars/stem/steerer (ala Madone) the shape of the top left hand corner of the main triangle.

I'm not sure how that cable routing would work with the rim braked version, I get a feeling the disc option will be the only new propel this year

My LBS just announced 2018 Propel Advanced Pro 1 (rim brakes) but it seems to be same version as 2017.

Yes no NEW rim brake Propel for now. New model will be presented the end of August and only for disc brake!

For a Giant frame it looks good :thumbup:

But I prefer the new Orbed aero for example. You can also have very nice colours :thumbup:

Or the Specialized Venge VIAS:

I guess there is no new frame for 2018?


FYI - Baidu is a China forum.

from the looks of it.. it looks about the same as before.. not much change. plus sunweb killed it this time with TCR and looks like they'll be jacking up the TCR pricing as well. :(

Not so sure about that. The frameset is actually US$200 cheaper than last year's.

Orbea is not disc brake and Venge is said not to be very comfortable.. Giant had plenty of time for development, they focused on disc brake version so i hope they have nailed it! I am also looking forward to seeing new disc Scott Foil. It has not been introduced yet but should be within next months.
