Product Details

2012 Giant Defy Advanced 2

Luxury and speed go hand in hand aboard Giant's Defy Advanced 2. Its gorgeous frame and fork are made from feathery carbon for a light, lively ride. Plus, your comfort is ensured by the composite's vibration-damping characteristics that take the bumps out of the road. And, this bike sports Shimano's tried-and-true Ultegra components with a hill-conquering compact crankset, a supportive Fizik saddle and Giant P-SL1 wheels for a ride so nice you won't want to come home.

    Comments:

    have been biking for a while and was pretty happy with a lower end Trek. wanted to upgrade and was told to check out Giant because of the great value for your money. tried a number of bikes, but really fell in love with the Defy. its lightweight, great components and durable. probably will upgrade wheels and tires in a couple of years, but otherwise, love it! lots of hills in Michigan and this bike helps me kill them
