For those who find multiple gears to be an unnecessary luxury in the lung-searing, leg-numbing world of cyclocross racing, this is the single speed version of Giant’s TCX SLR cyclocross bike. It was ridden by Giant Factory Off-Road Team racer Adam Craig to his second consecutive title at the 2013 Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships-where the after-party starts before the gun even goes off, the only sanctioning body is the heckling crowd and first prize is a tattoo. After proving twice-over that he is the fastest in the world when the derailleurs come off and the costumes go on, we decided to make Adam’s frame available in limited quantity to everyone.
The ALUXX SLR frame forms the heart of this light, stiff and sturdy single speed ‘cross frameset. The TCX SLR SS mates the stiffness and light weight of high-end aluminum with an innovative design that provides great comfort for rough-and-tumble off-road riding.
