Here is my 'slightly' modified Giant Defy 2.




Starting to get like triggers broom.
Mods are:
Giant Defy 0 Frame
Giant P-SL1 Wheels
Ultegra Chainset
Ultegra Cassete
Ultegra Chain
Deda 100 servizio corse stem
Ritchey WCS saddle post
Prologo Scratch Pro Ti saddle
Shimano Ultegra spec cables
Helicopter Tape in usual areas
Giant defy mud guards
Saddle bag and lights

I use her most days to commute to work 12 months a year and for fun on the weekends.
I've saved well over half a kilo with all the mods and when the summer arrives she's pretty nimble.
Over 2 years old now but keep her in good shape. Still running like new!!
I would like to upgrade the Tiagra shifters, brakes, front and rear mech and some point in the future and maybe some better wheels when these ones wear out.
Then transfer the lot over to a new carbon frame :mrgreen:

    If it is a Defy 0 frame then in my book that makes it a modified Defy 0 now :P

    What is on your stem btw?

    Maybe saddle needs tilting up?

  • Handle bars, shifters, brakes, and front and rear mechs are original!
    Yes ok, I think it is fair to call it a defy 0.

    Its a quad lock mount on my stem. I mount my phone to the stem for strava and google maps. Pretty handy set-up and get away with not needing a cycle computer.

    Rideontime, are you referring to the bar tape or the copious use of anti chaff tape?
    My first attempt at bar tape, thought it was an ok job :?:

    I've changed the saddle tilt a few times and feel that this works for me, maybe I'm odd shaped!
