Switching from mountain biking to a road bike. Stopped by the LBS and found last year's Giant Defy 1 with a carbon fork and carbon seat post as well as full shimano 105 components. It was discounted to $1,170.00.
I was thinking of an entry level bike at perhaps $7-800 (actually went to look at rhe Defy 5) but thought if I ended up upgrading something cheaper now in a year or so I'd be better off spending a little more upfront. My question is whether the Defy 1 is worth the money and if the sales price is a good deal.
There is also a used 2010 Trek 1.2 that's about a year old and used very little - looks brand new. The guy wants $650.00.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
