    2013 Defy 1 pictures

    Just picked this bike up a few weeks ago, it's my first road bike. Just thought I would share some pictures as I haven't seen to many 13's around here.

    I'm a converted mountain biker, that's why the flats are on there. Never tried clipless, waiting until I feel comfortable on the bike before I learn to ride clipless, so hate away.

    Yeah, they're lovely looking bikes. Thinking of getting one myself but a bit stuck in my decision. Do you know how much it weighs?

    My Defy 0 is 15 lbs and change. The Di2 adds a bit, but worth it!

    I wish the Advanced 2 had the Defy 1 colour scheme.

    Nothing wrong with flat pedals. I wish I'd had them the other day when I fell over sideways on the road (couldn't unclip in time). Ouch!

    Thanks! I was actually hoping I could find a 2012, I like the black/blue/white better.

    My bike is aluminum, I don't have a scale, but I remember reading the 2012 was 19 and change. Coming from riding mountain bikes, this is really light.

    Saw your thread, that's a kick ass bike you have. Really wanted carbon but I couldn't swing it.

    I was riding a MUT, and some guy riding the opposite direction as me just shook his head when he saw me with my baggy shorts and 5.10 shoes. I was thinking I'd get the same reaction to the flats here.

    19.55lbs for a medium 2012 Defy 1 according to CyclingPlus. I just bought a used 2012 Defy 1 and swapping out wheelset and it should be around 19lbs for a Large.

    Welcome to the world of Giant!! Hands down, my most favorite brand to ride!!! Nice looking bike!! I currently have a 2012 Giant Defy Advanced 1 with SRAM Force and love it!! Very smooth and fast!! I really wanted the Advanced 0, but Giant was back-ordered on those for months when I bought the Defy Advanced 1. I couldn't wait, so I went with the Advanced 1. You'll love yours!!

    Nice bike. Don't sweat not getting carbon. I like mine a lot but aluminum is vastly underrated these days.
    Consider Speedplay pedals. Very easy to get in and out of and great if you have any knee issues due to lots of float.
