Hi guys. WW Noob here.
Please don't flame me for her being a lard arsse!!

She's a 2012 model Giant Defy advanced 2, in Large.
I bought her new in January as my very first road bike and so far she's done about 2000 miles.

As sold spec as follows;
Frame/Fork: Advanced-Grade Composite with full carbon fork, OverDrive 2 front end, 1 1/4"-1 1/2"
Bars: Giant Contact
Stem: Giant Contact Ti
Seatpost: Giant Vector Composite
Saddle: Fi'zi:k Aliante Delta
Pedals: Ultegra 6700
Brakes: Ultegra 6700
Cassette: Ultegra 11-28T
Chain: Ultegra
Chainset: Ultegra, 34/50
Bottom Bracket: Shimano Dura-Ace, Press Fit
Wheels: Giant P-SL1 WheelSystem
Tyres : Giant P-SL1 23mm

Only changes I've made are a set of Ultegra 6700 pedals, a set of Giant's P-SLR1 rims with Bontrager R2 23mm tyres, 12-25T Ultegra Cassette and Dura Ace chain.

She is my current do-it-all bike but will soon become the training/winter hack as I will soon be building a 2012 TCR Advanced SL with ISP.
That will have UDi2 and probably P-SLR1 Aero wheels.

Great Giant.

But hard to flame the weight when you don't give it ;)

Nice looking frame! Please ditch the red tires!!! Why do folks insist on buying colored tires....it only encourages the manufacturers to produce them!

:welcome: Looking forward to the TCR, for sure!

Hey... they came on the wheels!! Haha!

I usually have Conti GP 4000S' on there.

I actually quite like the red.

Nary a chance a Giant came with Bontrager tires.

That said, a very nice looking bike. Will you be lobbing off the top of the steerer?

Aye, the fella I bought the wheels off had a Trek.
Giant wheels on a Trek...

Steerer, probably, maybe....
I may sell the thing yet.
Moving to sunnier climes soon, so may not need a training/winter hack.

Replaced the bar tape for black fizik performance stuff and replaced the saddle with a black Arione.

Will get new pics of her soon.
