    2015 Giant Defy differences
    What's the difference to justify $900 from Defy Advanced 1 or a Defy Advanced Pro 1? Carbon grade? Weight? Worthwhile?

    Full carbon steerer.
    Giant psl0 wheels. They have dtswiss internals.
    Shimano's 140mm discs. The advance uses 160mm tektro.

    Yes I can spec each, but someone opine on the value of the upgrade. Is it worth it? Will a 4500 mile/annually, 20mph avg guy notice? Just saying...

    Well, that depends on how comfortable you are with your budget. If you can easily afford the Pro go for it, in my opinion it's worth the extra money.
