2013 Giant Defy 1

Giant's Defy 1 lets you cruise roads and over the hills on the horizon. Giant's ALUXX SL aluminum frame and Advanced carbon fork with an OverDrive steerer let the Defy dominate the climbs while soaking up road vibration for a super-smooth, refined ride. This rocket is more than just fast though, you'll love the tall head tube and stable geometry that allows for a more comfortable position so you feel great through every mile. This Defy boasts Giant's lightweight P-R2 rims along with Shimano's awesome 105 gruppo for crisp shifting, Tektro brakes for confident stopping, as well as reliable Giant components for a fast ride that's amazing everywhere you go.

    I wanted to correct my previous review to say that I would recommend this bike, I have over six hundred miles without any failures. Handles 270 pounds rims still straight even over some rough terrain.

      Comments:

      Compared this bike to a couple other name brands (Trek, Specialized) similar price point. I am 6'6 270 It was more comfortable for me than the others. After over 400 miles it has held up well which was my concern with a road bike. Handles well brakes stop great, the Shimano 105 group live up to the hype.
