I picked up a Giant defy 5 last fall, its a 2013 and has about 400 or so miles on it. ok 500. Still not alot, but I have been riding more and more when i get time and feel like i want a better looking bike; this bike is fine and fits my lack of experience etc, i just hate the color scheme. grey and blue es no muy bien. So i started looking around at upgrading and it occurred to me I could just swap to a different frame. Can I just swap over to a defy3 or better frame set and use my existing controls etc? better yet is there somewhere I can look for compatibility info or do i just assume all these parts from the same manufacturer are compatible with each other?
my LBS out right told me they would be screwing me if I traded in towards a newer better bike and to just sell it myself. Looking over my options now, something in black arouses my interest. Thanks!
