2016 Giant Defy 5

Explore your world on two wheels with Giant's Defy 5. Giant's ALUXX aluminum frame lets the Defy zoom up the climbs while muting road vibration for a super-smooth, refined ride.

        I'm just getting into this sport as a runner. Training for a triathlon, so I didn't want to spend thousands of $ on a bike. This is the best bike out there for newbies like me. I've had it for 7 days now and put only 50 miles on it. but I like the ride, it feels right.

        Comments:

        I picked the Defy 5 over the Specialized Allez and Trek 1 series due to how well this bike felt. I got the sensation of being atop the other two bikes, but the Defy felt like I was inside of it, a part of it. Not as snappy and aggressive as the Allez, but more planted and just about as agile as the Allez. The Trek felt cramped, the Allez felt stretch out, but the Defy felt just right. Kind of heavy for a road bike, but I'll take it as good climbing resistance training. Great first modern road bike for anyone looking to get into the sport. The guys at Allis Bike and Fitness in West Allis, WI were very patient and informative and let me try out a number of bikes before I settled on the Defy. Couldn't be happier!

            Great for road riding. I've have no complaints. Very well constructed entry level cycle. Have ridden over 500 miles on this cycle with no mechanical failures. Only one flat.

            Great Bike and Fun to Ride

            By Brandon

            from Houston, TX

            About Me

            Comments:

            I've had this bike for two weeks and put over 150 miles on it already (about 10 a day). The XL is comfortable for a 6'2 male. It rides well without too much vibrations. I like the gearing and the shifters/brakes are easy to reach from the hooks. It's stable at all the speeds I can reach (and I topped out at about 27 with a tail wind one day). For the recreational/exercise rider, this is a great bike. It's not the lightest, not the fastest, and not the slickest looking, but I've gotten a few complements. This is an excellent bike! I recommend it for the beginning cyclist or someone looking for a solid exercise bike.

            Comments:

            I bought this bike at Montgomery Cyclery in Anderson a few months ago after doing extensive research on entry-level road bikes for quite some time before finally purchasing. I could not be happier with my purchase. Exceptional value for the $, super smooth, lightweight, easy shifting, very comfortable, fast and fun. Definitely recommend!

              It is a finely tuned machine without breaking the bank. I have put over 250 miles on it in just under a month. She is smooth and agile. I rode it stock for about 100 miles before I installed the 105 5800 shifters, FD, RD and cassette (I did the "remove the 16 trick")! Very simple and inexpensive upgrade. She was speedy before and remains so now.
