is redoing the internal cables much of a job on these? would of preferred doing the frame swap myself but the dealer had to do it for warranty purposes but at the time I wasn't too bothered.

It's probably the most simple internal cable routed frame to work with. Once the cables feed thru the faceplate, there's a direct guide all the way to the exit.


Wonder if this true for the disc-brake Defy... I asked at the shop and they believe the noodle guides are only at the BB, leaving cable inners loose between the frame stops and would require full bottom bracket removal to do any cable work.

I really want to shorten my somewhat noodley cable runs...


When changing the chainset on my Defy I found Giant hadn't installed the bottom bracket sleeve. Odd I think as I had to be careful not snag the Di2 cables. It is true they hang loose in the frame and the junction box which explains the rattle! I had to rethread the rear cable and it was okay. I made sure everything is up in the downtube away from the cranks with some electrical tape.

Awesome bike it is a medium frame and in my opinion offers the best value of any top end road bike around . There are still some for sale and with 20% off the bike is excellent value

Nice shotgun

I however already have dura ace di2 on another bike and could not see myself getting used to different shifting patterns

Updated:Image

Hunt Aero Disc wheelset added (weight w/o skerwers 1487g) as the freehub on the Zipps fell apart. Also the Zipps had been problematic since day one with various issues. Great wheels when they are running though. Returned to shop so needed a wheelset to run on.

Running 25mm Schwalbe Pro Ones tubeless. Also got a great deal on a Dura Ace 9000 cassette 11-28. Surprised with Dura Ace cassette and Di2 they shift smoother than the Ultegra cassette I replaced. I always thought the difference was that of weight and not performance.

As discs are centrelock I had some spare Avids 140mm I picked up for a fiver each at Planet X. Porkier though than 6 bolt offerings. Far better braking than lightweight KCNC discs.

Bike looks cleaner I think with Hunts. Great wheelset for the money.

Edit: Weight - 7.89kg Ouch! Wow! I was hoping to be around 7.4kg mark tbh. Shaved weight with the Hunt wheels and Dura Ace cassette but still. Tubeless setup probably is same weight as the Scwalbe Ones and the Vittoria latex inners. Porky frameset and gruppo.

Trying a Aliante R1 saddle. Think I have the torque issue sussed. Hopefully about 60g saved there.

My old 2013 TCR Advanced SL Rabobank, my first top end frameset and the only one of several bikes I've owned since that I miss and regret selling

That photography is ace, it reminds me to get my @ss out of the office and make some myself. Do you have a page where all your bike-related photography is presented?
