Strengths: Shimano 105 All over
Platinum White Red Scheme
Feels Solid but it's light.
Stock seat is actually not bad
Weaknesses: Wish top end was a bit faster - that's gearing.
Tires eh...they're ok.
White bike shows dirt
Would be nice if the digital computer for speedtrap wasn't over $100
nothing really to complain about.
Only had this bike a few weeks but I can say that it's a good purchase. Feels like what you would expect a good aluminum frame. Right between steel & carbon. Good responsive feel with stability. We have a lot of hills here so once I understood how to shift the compact crank it performs very well. Breaks are very good. Shifting is solid 105 performer. You may be concerned with the lack of carbon in the seat stays but doesn't bother me. I've owned carbon stays before only a slight difference. Would trade them for better components any day. But really what sold me on the bike besides the specs is the look. All bikes in a certain class are going to perform very similiar. So it came down to the paint. This bike looks fast even if I'm not! I dig the white wheels too. Don't see many bikes with'em. Just makes you want to ride it.
I'm looking to sell my 2010 2.3 that I purchased.
Just haven't been riding it enough to justify keeping it. I'm the original owner and the bike has maybe 200 miles tops. What would be a good starting price?
Thanks in advance.Read More »

Hello, I am looking at buying my first road bike for century rides and I need a little advice. I am looking at the 2010 Giant Defy Advanced 2 or 3. Both bikes basically have Shimano 105 components but have a few exceptions.
