Looking at getting a road bike... i race cross country so i want a decent enough road bike to do a lot of training on and maybe get into some races too.
For my first one i don't want to spend a bomb, looking around £750 ish and want basically th best i can get for that.
Looking at the Giant Defy range, they look great and i hear good things about them - anybody else ride one? What are they like?
Is the tiagra 9spd groupset okay or does it feel crappy? also will i be wearing things out quickly? I guess, as i've never had a road bike, i have nothing to compare to so not such a problem.
