    Very happy with my Shimano C24 CL wheelset. They replaced my AC CR-350's which I will get rid of now that I've ridden the Dura-Ace's and like them.

    The difference is mainly brought on by the wheels... 2008 is definitely better for hilly terrain while the 2006 is better suited on the flats especially when the winds are calm. My first Giant is the red 2008 TCR. I liked its ride quality and fit which is why I got the 2 others off craigslist to use as backups.

    looks sharp. I have the 2009 defy advanced 1.

    Is your picture the "Stock" bike. I like all of the Red accents (bar plugs, front deraiuler hanger, seat post clamp, water bottle screws, etc...)

    also I have not seen the Giant logo on Rims/wheels before.

    Yup, all stock for the 2011 version. I haven't seen any 2011 Giants online, so I was surprised to see it at my local bike shop. I only added the Cateye computer, seat bag, and pedals. I guess the stock wheelset is really entry-level, which made the 2011 Giant Defy Advanced 3 more than a couple hundred dollars cheaper than the 2010 Defy Adv 3.

    Congrats, beautiful bike!

    What size frame is that (and what are your measurements, if you don't mind me asking )

    Cheers and many happy miles on that bike,

    2011 Defy Advanced 3

    Here is my newly purchased Giant Defy Advanced 3. Coming from a 2008 Tarmac Comp Compact this thing is like super comfy. Swapped out the stock Giant wheels for the Mavic Askiums from my Tarmac.

    I know I spent the afternoon staring at it, but your pic didn't come through.

    Looks good ;-)
    How far did you end up driving to find it in large? Good idea swapping out the wheelset, I'll probably do the same after a few more hundred miles.
    Hopefully Giant will throw the specs of the 2011 bikes up on their website soon.

    Yeah those wheels really helped the look and since they were on the Tarmac I am selling I figured I would try them on and they have been there ever since.

    The bike was available to be ordered on week 29 which was 2 weeks ago tomorrow and when I called no one had it in a large yet so my local shop ordered it and it came in 3 days. They built it immediately when it hit their door. I have it dialed in now after the initial fitting and this thing rides like a dream. Thanks for your help!
