    2013 Giant Defy 5

    Just picked her up from the LBS a few hours ago. I will be adding a water bottle cage like...Today!....changing the pedals to dual sided clipless ASAP and "maybe" the bar tape when I decide which color . This is my very first real road bike ever and I am really excited about it.

    Sorry for the crappy pictures but here she is... no name yet..

    Thanks for looking.

    Thanks ladies... She is in my room , I just keep looking at her and she looks soo shiny...I thinks thats goin to be her name "Shiny" ... I won't be able to really ride her until the weekend. Lets see how many miles I can get before my butt starts complaining about the saddle.

    Not much....I got my commuter at the end of last year and I started commuting to work a couple of months ago or so... a few weeks later I was convinced I wanted a real road bike...especially when I started feeling healthier and toned,dropped weight and especially inches without having to go to the gym. About the brand?... I made the decision in a couple of weeks after I started the search....and I think is a nice bike for the money. I am pretty sure I will be upgrading maybe in a couple of years to a better bike or I might just upgrade the components...
