Giant Defy 2 or Specialized Allez Sport - Help Please!!!

Postby desob33 » Wed Dec 05, 2012 08:52 am


I'm upgrading my training bike over the winter and am torn between the defy 2 and the Specialized Alez sport.

The Defy has a better tiagra groupset than the Allez's Sora but the Specialized's racier geometry and other specs might pip it.

My race bike has a ten gear rear wheel cassette but the Specialized is only a 9-gear. Not sure if this'll make a big amt of difference but I might be better off keeping consistency if I ever had to swap them.

Prices are very similar but just not sure which one to stump for, may just go wt instinct and the Allez but any opinions out there would be greatly appreciated!! Will use for winter Tri training, turbo sessions etc

Many thanks,
