Hello all,

Some advice if you please: which of the above do people think would be the better buy?

The Planet X is likely to be good enough to last me until it breaks (or I do) whereas I'm likely to feel the Giant will need some upgrading over time (particularly the wheels). The price is the same so is it worth putting up with the worse kit on the Giant to get what is purpotedly a better frame?

Subjective I know but I'd like to hear what people think.

Thanks in advance for your help.

    The giant defy advanced has a different geometry, it has a shorter top tube and longer head tube. It is designed for long distance comfort. The Planet-X isn't

    So if you want a longer distance bike, get the Giant
