:D hi all. Finally got my new 2016 defy 2. Upgraded from a carrerra tdf. My god what a difference . It was like if i had a 50cc motor attached to the bike. It makes a hell of a difference. I loved my carerra when i had it and it really got me into cycling but i cant explain how much of a difference riding a giant defy is. If you get chance to upgrade or are looking for a new bike. Try the defy. Cant wait to get out again and give it a good try out. Im new to cycling only taken ul about a year ago but the difference between the two bikes even tk a novice is noticable.

Cheers holdey

    Not a good post, I have a tdf, never thought there would be so much different for other bikes under a grand... now it may cost me money

    I've had a cheap £300 hybrid for years whilst I looked at whether cycling would continue to hold my interest, it did - and I'm about to upgrade to a 105/Ultegra level bike. Very much looking forward to experiencing what you have
