Looks like we'll be getting the Giant Anyroad this year which appears to be a drop bar cross road tourer commuter with mechanical disc brakes and an alloy frame & carbon fork...but no rack mounts. Comes with 700x32 tyres.
Taiwan gets three specs (2, 1 and 0) which runs from Sora to 105. Top spec 0 is roughly equivalent to AU$1,250 and this is the spec I suggest we'll see. I'd reckon they'll pop up at various cross events in the months to come

Here's a pic of the basic spec 2 with Sora driveline
Ours is not to reason why...merely to point and giggle
... oh wait. Not any more.
I'm looking to upgrade my commuter to a CX style bike. Disc brakes are a must (I'll probably go hydraulic by the time i get around to it), but it's gotta be able to carry some gear and my daughters baby seat. There's some nice looking ones out there and this one looks great. Lack of mounts is a major PITA.
Ahh, thanks. Of course. My wife's giant avail has them. Agree on looking a little weird in the photo though.
I really do like the curve of the top tube/seat stay on that frame. Probably a very derivative design, but still like it.
That is one ugly beast. Looks like something created from a bunch of spare mtb frames. Yuck.

Pass on the FSA crankset, but otherwise looks good. Pity about the lack of rack mounts.

Yeah, the lack of rack mounts (and probably mudguard mounts) changes it from an appealing allrounder to a plaything.
Bump - 2014 version up - comes with BB7 now. Damn and I just bought a spesh!http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-au/bikes/model/anyroad.1/14905/66332/#overview

I would rather have the new Specialized AWOL. Steel frame and fork. Rack and mudguard mounts and disc brakes.

Yes that is a nice bike. Or the new Surly. I bought my Merida in 2011 because it had rack mounts, and I still haven't fitted a rack
Which new Surly do you speak of? Or do you mean the new Salsa?
I think he's talking about Surly's new gravel grinder the "Straggler"

OK thanks. Since I already have a CC with a disc, I probably won't be needing one of those.
Bad photo, taken today.
Yes that's the one I wasn't sure of the name.
Maybe the Revolt http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-au/bikes/model/revolt.0/14904/66424/ would be better.
I believe it has rack mount points.
You could put Zéfal muddies on it. It's a got a rear eyelet, but you'd need one of those forkhole fastening fellows on the front.
