New bike stuff!

Came very close to buying a Giant Defy 3 today as my first road bike ... any thoughts, feedback, or comments? I'm thinking of heading to the shop next week to put down the readies.


  • Giant makes reasonable bikes, although im personally not a fan of the finish they have compared to other brands. I also think that Giant generally underequip their frames. The frame set is worth better components, especially the rear derailler. The Sora groupset can be a pain in the arse and the shifters have a lot to be desired imho.
    I would personally look for a good deal on a 2011 bike with a better groupset, or a decent second hand bike.
