I am a long time MTB'er who is considering a trip to the dark side. I am demo'ing a Giant this week. Like road riding so far. I am wondering how serious riders view the Giant brand. My MTB quiver is a collection of Moots, Jones and M Chester. I am unlikely to spend a similiar amount on my first road rig. I was looking at some of the Giant bikes for sale in the shop and based on what i see via a quick web search, Giant bikes appear to be somewhat less expensive than similiar models from other manufacturers. Seems like I coule get a pretty nice Defy or TCR for around $2000 and spend time upgrading later. I would greatly appreciate any opinions on Giant that you could share.
