    I did not weigh the test bikes. When I lifted the ad2 test bike, it felt similar to my defy comp 3. But that comparison may not be fair since I have upgraded the wheelset/saddle on my comp 3 and...

    I think you are right. Read somewhere in Taiwanese forum that Giant has actually "downgraded" their defy nomenclature, such that 2015 "pro" is comparable to 2014 "advanced" and 2015 "advanced" is...

    thanks all for responding. I did not realize the NW district is one of the more expensive neighborhoods in portland. I guess should I take a job there I will look into that more.

    ok, i will take your advice for now... or maybe i will take a wrench to tweak the wheel rim so it is parallel to my brake pad, if the caliper arms won't budge.

    still curious: why is brake pad alignment (or toe-in as you referred to) not a safety thing? If only my rear 20% of the brake pad is engaged with the rim when the lever are pressed, doesn't that mean...

    thank you. I will look into that. though I am still perplexed why my stock tiagra brake pad holder does not provide a means to adjust the brake pad, it seems like such a basic safety need.

    i took the caliper/brake shoe apart. There are two washers but both of them are flat so there does not seem to have any way to adjust the "toe-in".
