Details

Explore your world on two wheels with Giant's Defy 5. Giant's ALUXX aluminum frame lets the Defy zoom up the climbs while muting road vibration for a super-smooth, refined ride. Beyond just light and smooth, you'll love the tall head tube and stable geometry that allows for a more comfortable position so you feel great through every mile. This Defy boasts Giant's lightweight S-R2 rims, 16-speed Shimano components for crisp shifting, Tektro brakes for confident stopping, as well as reliable Giant components.

Giant’s OverDrive 2 delivers up to 30%-better cornering and sprinting stiffness and control than non-tapered front ends with:
1/2) 1 ¼-inch/1 ½-inch diameter bearings
3) 1 ¼-inch diameter Giant stem
4) Tapered fork steerer
5) Giant OverDrive steerer plug

      Nice road bike for the money. I've bought 3 other bikes from Giant (Mountian bikes) This is the only road bike I've had since my Peugiot U08. I've got 150 miles on it so far, and It's all been fun.

        I am using this bike for road cycling and triathlon training and racing. It hasn't failed me yet, it is very comfortable and agile. I wouldn't call it lightweight, but it certainly isn't heavy either. Overall, a great entry-level bike. I have upgraded the seat, added clip-on aero bars, and may eventually upgrade the shifters.
