    Has anyone seen the new Defy modals from Giant.Or better still got one any comments on them as i just bought a scr2 and now feel a little silly. :oops:

    I recently bought an SCR 3 for £370, the guy in the bike shop told me that Giant's '09 bikes are all going to be more expensive.

    Thank 'Hoy' he was being honest and that I listened!

    Here are the prices of the new Defy range from the shop I bought my SCR 3 from:

    http://shop.devercycles.co.uk/category/300/Racing_Bikes

    Everything is about £100 more.

    I suspect the OP paid between £550 RRP to £450 sale price for an SCR2 the Defy equivalent (Defy 2.5) cost around £100 more. So no reason to feel silly.

    It does seem that the Defy range has different brakes, bottom bracket, cranks and tyres. I think however - keep in mind the bike has yet to be road tested but the SCR range was highly recommended and sort after - that the additional cost is due to external factors (cost of production, shipping, state of the economy) and not because each bike has £100's worth more of kit, maybe I'm wrong as I paid near £100 to improve those dog awful stock kenda wheels.... The Defy 3, which is the equivalent of the SCR 3 doesn't come with a Tiagra rear shifter, its just Sora throughout and cost £100 more than the outgoing SCR3. I do, however prefer the simplicity of the range in that they give you a full groupset of shifters, mechs and in the Defy 1's case 105 brakes.

    The range is on the Giant Website

    A true scalp is not only overtaking someone but leaving them stopped at a set of lights. As you, who have clearly beaten the lights, pummels nothing but the open air ahead. ~ 'DondaddyD'. Player of the Unspoken Game

    £175 off 08 SCR1.5's in the Edinburgh sale starting in an hour.

    would be tempted if I wasn't waiting for bike to work to come in.
