I just want a bike that will in­spire me to line up at the start. .

TThe peo­ple of Ti­bet re­fer to Mount Ever­est as Langma. It means ‘high­est achiev­able point’, which is ex­actly where this line of women’s bikes wants to take you. The Ad­vanced 2 Disc is the en­try-level model, weigh­ing about 8.5kg. It has full Shi­mano 105, and Gi­ant Con­duct hy­draulic disc brakes – the ca­ble-ac­tu­ated mas­ter cylin­der is in­te­grated into the face­plate of the stem. It’s not a feath­er­weight com­pared to the other bikes in this line-up, but the way it jumps, surges and climbs is im­pres­sive. It re­sponds well to tiny hip twitches, and I had ex­tra con­fi­dence to take cor­ners hot­ter than usual. If you’re se­ri­ous about win­ning races and have R80k to drop, you might want to con­sider the high­est-end Langma. I just want a bike that will in­spire me to line up at the start. The Ad­vanced Disc is that bike.
