Woo Hoo! Another Clyde with a new bike today

I finally got it today. After months of lay-away payments, it's home.
It's a Giant Defy 2 - Compact...

I can't wait to put some miles on her! My first real road bike.

Took it on the first ride this morning. About 26.5 miles (need to move the computer over to it still). It's fast. I still have to get used to the clipless peddles though.

I'll get some pictures up soon.
