    Defy Advanced 2 -- not in U.S.?

    I just got finished reading the cover story of Cycling Plus (U.K. magazine), which named the Giant Defy Advanced 2 as 2013 "Bike of the Year." Intrigued, I checked the Giant (U. S.) website, but found listings for only the Advanced 0 and Advanced 1. A further Google search revealed the only Defy Advanced 2 listings were for 2012 and earlier models.

    Is the Advanced 2 not available at all here? Or is it just that they haven't started importing it yet? It seems odd to me that a bike which could win a notable award in England is the one model left off the American product line, even though the latter carries other models in the same line.

    Each market selects which of the models it wants. For example, I thought the Trinity Composite 0 was a cracking bike and would sell by the boat load but we don't get it over here, just the Composite 1..
