30 Day Test Ride

All the convenience of buying online, without the risk
When you buy a new bike at full RRP from rutlandcycling.com, you can now benefit from the added reassurance of our Rutland 30-day test ride. Once your new bike arrives, you can ride it as your own for 30 days, and we're confident you'll love it! However, if it's not right for you, we'll exchange it for another model. (There's a nominal charge of £10 for us to collect your bike - just make sure you keep the box your bike arrived in.)

On which bikes is the 30-day test ride available?
The Rutland 30-day test ride is available on all full price, non-discounted bikes available for home delivery on rutlandcycling.com. It is not available on discounted or special offer bikes, click and collect bikes, bikes bought on finance, bikes bought through Cyclescheme, or bikes bought in store. This offer is only available on bikes delivered to mainland UK addresses.

How does the test ride work?
Your 30-day test ride starts from the date your bike is delivered. You must notify us by email within 30 calendar days of delivery that you intend to return the bike within this scheme. This offer applies to all bikes purchased on or after 14th August 2014. To ensure you remain eligible, we would ask that you adopt a 'fair usage' attitude during the test ride period, and make sure there is no damage to the bike outside of the minimal wear you would expect from a bike ridden for 30 days or a few rides. Please note that any damage to the bike, including damage from incorrect assembly, will invalidate the test ride.

How many times can I use the 30-day test ride?
We will allow up to two exchanges within this scheme.

    Description

    Season : Deal

    Code : D4010073

    Brand : Giant

    Weight : 10KG

    Shimano 105 shifting on a frame that defined endurance road cycling.

    Order before 2pm for same day dispatch.

    The Giant Defy 1 takes Giant's endurance geometry frame and gives it the magic Shimano 105 touch. The result is a bike that is born to go the distance in style. The Aluxx SL tubing is hydro formed and drawn to get the walls as light as possible whilst generating a shape for fantastic power transfer. Shimano's 105 10 speed has long been regarded as the groupset that set the bar for endurance riding and is a match made in heaven on the Defy frame. Carbon fork and the standard Giant over sized top tube gives fantastic steering, effective even under braking load. 

    • Superb lightweight Aluxx SL Frame.
    • Shimano 105 for smooth, clockwork, shifting.
    • Carbon seat post for enhanced vibration dampening.
    • Mudguard compatible.

    An all-round endurance bike built for speed as well as comfort.

    I have enjoyed leisure cycling for many years but always on a mountain or hybrid bike. I decided to get a road bike and was impressed by the reviews of the Giant Defy 1. I received my new bike from Rutland Cycling a few days after submitting my order. It came very well packed and after minimal adjustment was ready to ride. I have so far been on two 20 to 25 mile rides and am very impressed. I can cover so much more distance on my rides and hills are so much easier. This bike is such good value for money (especially when buying from Rutland) and I cant wait to get out on it again.

    Bought this bike as a winter training bike to save my carbon one from the rigors of winter. Took advantage of the free Defy mudguard set from Rutland as well. I must say this is a great winter substitute for my Defy Advanced 0, and performs extremely well on the wet and damp conditions that this time of year presents. Very capable handling and I have enjoyed riding since my purchase. Would highly recommend.

    Had been doing a lot of research into bikes when I went to a great shop called Cloud 9 Cycles - they were all prepared to sell me one of their bikes until a little research from them said that actually for what my budget was I couldnt do much better than this Giant Defy 1. The components, especially the 105s, were what really sold it to me. It goes like a dream and I went back to the shop who recommended me to kit it out with lights, security system, lock etc. Rutland were very efficient, speedy delivery, very helpful on the phone about any questions I had, bike seems well put together and have done quite a few rides on it without any issue - really cant complain, would happily use them again.

    My first road bike and I must say Rutland Cycles gave me good professional advice on choosing the right bike for me. Ordered it on line and it arrived on spot on time. A great buy at an amazing price. I will defiantly be dealing with them again. Only had it a week and have done nearly 200 miles, so easy to ride. Thank you Rutland Cycles.

    Upgraded my defy 5 to a defy 1 August 14 from Rutland cycles. Speedy delivery and great service, many thanks. The 105 groupo is slick, quiet and precise. The carbon forks and very compliant but the wheels are fantastic, a huge improvement over the defy 5. Minimal rolling resistance and combined with the other upgrades makes this a fantastic package, not to mention the reduced price. Very pleased and I now see no reason to upgrade again as this is so good I feel the cash outlay for anything else compared to the return is too great for me. A real keeper.

    This is a fabulous bicycle at a really good price. I have taken it out an was immediately able to do so much more than I used to do on my old steed It is light and the shimano 105s make it a very smooth ride.As I prefer a harder saddle I changed the stock one for a brooks cambium, and will upgrade the tyres to gatorskins 4 seasons as soon as I can,but thats personal preferences. I recommend this bike.

    After deciding on which bike I wanted, I looked around the internet for the most competitive price, and Rutland could not be beaten. I ordered the bike on Thursday lunchtime and it arrived Saturday morning - unbelievable! A fantastic service at the best price. Highly recommended, I could ask for no more. Having rode my new machine a few times now, I am delighted. Couldnt be happier!

    Im an intermediate cyclist that needed a new bike to keep up with others on the hills of Yorkshire. Id been looking for over a month and looked at the Boardman Team Carbon (nice bike especially when on offer with 15% discount), and the Cube Agree GTC Pro Carbon (again nice bike). The offer on the Giant Defy 1 2014 with 105 Shimano groupset seemed like the sensible choice at this price, as very little weight difference to the others, also less likely to break being Alum. Ive been on some reasonable rides 40-50 mile on the hills and I cant believe what a difference it has made, feels so much more comfortable and easier to handle than my old bike, and I get less fatigue with no back pains. All in all, a great bike at an amazing price. The 2015 version is £895 for black and white colour scheme.

    My question about Giant Defy 1 Compact Road Bike 2014 Black Red is...
  • At 6ft 1 what size do I need?
    Question asked by Kevin on Mar 30 2015 10:15AM
    Hi Kevin, The sizing differs between styles of bikes ever so slightly. I would advise for your height going for the ML frame size on the Defy 1.
    Your question was answered by ,
  • Hi Do you have these to purchase and look at in store? If taking delivery do you send out with all the gears and components correctly set up or would i have to try and do this? Also, if on arrival the bike has buckled wheels due to delivery, what are the options? One last one, if this bike goes out of stock which bike you do think is next best to go for? Thanks
    Question asked by Jef on Mar 12 2015 1:41PM
    Hi, you can view our stock at any time by selecting "check stock availability" on the listing. The bike is fully set up, please contact us if there are any issues. Finally I would recommend our Saracen Tenet 1 as a suitable alternative.

  • Hi Will you be getting the medium back in stock anytime? Do you have the bike in stock to come and look at as I am borderline medium, medium/large? Do you know the weight?
    Question asked by Alex on Feb 23 2015 12:21PM
    Hi, unfortunately we are not getting any more of these in stock. You can check store availability of sizes at any time on the listing by clicking 'check store availability' next to the relevant size. Finally we don't unfortunately have exact weights for the bike. I would guess it's around 12kg though.

  • Hi i was wondering if you do bike2work scheme aswell as cyclescheme, as that is the one my employer is on. Im looking at the 2014 Giant Defy 1.

  • 19:49:46 hi, have just bought this from you and was wondering whether there are any double sided clipless pedals you'd recommend. I've not used them before and would welcome your thoughts. What mid price shoes would you recommend? Finally (!) are there any other things you'd suggest would help set me up well. Thanks Stephen
    Question asked by Stephen Mann on Feb 22 2015 7:49PM
    Hi, I would generally recommend road pedals and shoes with this bike. Any of the Shimano shoes and pedals are very good, and would work well with the bike. The price generally depends on the quality your looking for. When buying a new bike there are a number of things we would recommend, however it may be best to email us directly on enquiries@rutlandcycling.com to discuss the options in more detail.

  • Hi, couple of questions. Firstly is it possible to use the cycle to work scheme with yourselves? I have the option of using either halfords or cyclescheme version. Secondly I am 6'1" with 32" inside leg. I've been sized for 58" with a trek and genesis, do you think a m/l or l would suit me better. Thanks Jamie
    Question asked by Jamie on Jan 31 2015 5:54PM
    Hi, I would probably suggest a large frame for yourself. You can find all of the information on Cycle Scheme here: http://www.rutlandcycling.com/content/cyclescheme.aspx
    Your question was answered by ,
  • I'm 6'1" with an inside leg measuring 33.5 inches. What size would you recommend as I seem to be right on the border of m/l and large?
    Question asked by john on Jan 31 2015 7:31AM
    Hi, at 6'1" I would be inclined to lean towards the large bike.
    Your question was answered by ,
  • Might be a daft question but when measuring inside leg, am I right in thinking you measure to the floor and not as you would if measuring trousers. I usually have a 31" trouser leg but measure a 33" leg to the floor, I'm 6'2" tall which would be a L?
    Question asked by Andy on Jan 27 2015 5:07PM
    Hi, yes for inside leg you would measure as if your were measuring trousers so down to the ankle. I would suggest a large for yourself.
    Your question was answered by ,
  • Does this bike get PDI'd and is it different to the 2015 version?
    Question asked by David on Jan 14 2015 1:39PM
    Hi David, All premium brand bikes are check (PDI'd) before posting out. On arrival you would need to straighten the bars and attach your pedals. The 2015 bike features a 'D fuse' seatpost (flat back) but other than that the geometry is the same.
    Your question was answered by ,
  • Can you get any XL bikes?
    Question asked by Jim on Jan 9 2015 5:08PM
    Hi Jim, Unfortunately we are unable to source more 2014 Defy 1 bikes in XL.
    Your question was answered by ,
  • I have a query regards size and fit. I have a 31" inside leg and am 5.11" which on your chart suggests I am an M. Could you confirm if M will therefore be 54" or 56" as other measuring guides suggest I would be suitable for a 56" size. I am looking to get back into cycling, having done mountain biking some years ago. I plan to use on evenings and weekends for regular riding, some distances in time. I am looking for a comfortable riding position together with a very good quality group set and the Giant Defy 1, with Shimano 105 and what appears to be a very comfortable geometry appears to be a very good option. Would you have any useful and/or further advice? as i am looking to ensure i purchase the best bike for my return to the roads.
    Question asked by Chris O'Hara on Jan 4 2015 8:39PM
    Hi, the literal sizing of this bike is around a 54cm/ 55cm however it is worth noting that all bikes are sized differently, and whilst you may require a 56cm in say Specialized, in Giant a medium would be the best size. At the price this is a very good deal at the moment and a great entry level bike.

    Hi Paddy, Unfortunately, this bike is no longer available in a small size.

  • Perhaps a stupid question but is this bike the same as a Giant Defy 1 (without the word "Compact" in the title)? I've seen it called both and don't know if they're one and the same?

  • Is this bike suitable?
    Question asked by Roger on Nov 1 2014 10:05PM
    Hi Roger, This bike would be more than up to the challenge. One thing to consider is that it doesn't have fitting for a pannier rack. We have stock remaining and this is available at our Grafham store for sizing.

  • Will these tyres fit?

    Shimano 105 shifting on a frame that defined endurance road cycling.

    Order before 2pm for same day dispatch.

    The Giant Defy 1 takes Giant's endurance geometry frame and gives it the magic Shimano 105 touch. The result is a bike that is born to go the distance in style. The Aluxx SL tubing is hydro formed and drawn to get the walls as light as possible whilst generating a shape for fantastic power transfer. Shimano's 105 10 speed has long been regarded as the groupset that set the bar for endurance riding and is a match made in heaven on the Defy frame. Carbon fork and the standard Giant over sized top tube gives fantastic steering, effective even under braking load. 

    • Superb lightweight Aluxx SL Frame.
    • Shimano 105 for smooth, clockwork, shifting.
    • Carbon seat post for enhanced vibration dampening.
    • Mudguard compatible.

    An all-round endurance bike built for speed as well as comfort.
