2016 Giant Defy 5

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, back-friendly position so you feel great through every mile. This Defy boasts Giant's lightweight SR-2 rims, 16-speed Shimano components for crisp shifting, Tektro brakes for confident stopping, and a selection of reliable Giant components.

Great Bike and Fun to Ride

By Brandon

from Houston, TX

About Me

Comments:

I've had this bike for two weeks and put over 150 miles on it already (about 10 a day). The XL is comfortable for a 6'2 male. It rides well without too much vibrations. I like the gearing and the shifters/brakes are easy to reach from the hooks. It's stable at all the speeds I can reach (and I topped out at about 27 with a tail wind one day). For the recreational/exercise rider, this is a great bike. It's not the lightest, not the fastest, and not the slickest looking, but I've gotten a few complements. This is an excellent bike! I recommend it for the beginning cyclist or someone looking for a solid exercise bike.

Perfect Entry Level Roadie

By Alison

from Cincinnati, OH

About Me

Comments:

I bought this bike at Montgomery Cyclery in Anderson a few months ago after doing extensive research on entry-level road bikes for quite some time before finally purchasing. I could not be happier with my purchase. Exceptional value for the $, super smooth, lightweight, easy shifting, very comfortable, fast and fun. Definitely recommend!

    Comments:

    It is a finely tuned machine without breaking the bank. I have put over 250 miles on it in just under a month. She is smooth and agile. I rode it stock for about 100 miles before I installed the 105 5800 shifters, FD, RD and cassette (I did the "remove the 16 trick")! Very simple and inexpensive upgrade. She was speedy before and remains so now.

            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.
