    Superb bike for the money. Fast and agile and can easily compete with bikes at twice the price. The big cassette makes climbing easy enough and is in fact lower geared at the bottom end than the older triple cranked bikes. It`s comfortable and the new frame makes in handle well. One small niggle is the white handle bar tape goes grubby after a few rides.

    Got this in the sale for a great price - £250 off the RRP - came quickly in a gigantic box, just had to move handlebars round and it was pretty much ready to go. Its fast and light for a London commute and rides nicely and (with a bit of derailleur adjustment) the gears change and run smoothly. Not a huge fan of the graphics / colour but when Im out riding I couldnt care less

    This is my first road bike, I spent ages trying to decide which one to get and I wavered between a cheap basic one to a full Carbon model, in the end I went middle of the road and I think it is a good move, I have only had a couple of short rides but it is such a difference between this and my mountain bike! It is very light and much more comfortable to ride on longer distances than my other bikes. I am told Giant are really good and so far it seems that way. The service from Rutland cycling was excellent and the bike was well packaged, it was quick to setup. My only slight issue is that the gears needed a bit of setting up so it took a while to learn how to do that. A few YouTube videos later though and all was starting to come together. Obviously I cannot compare it to much else but I really recommend this from what I have experienced so far

    I bought this bike as a winter trainer, to spare my carbon bikes from the salt and turbo stresses. Got a great deal from Rutland at £250 off RRP. Rutland staff helpful too, fitted me in to pick up the bike at a busy time. Excellent bike for the money, very comfortable ride and fast enough for keeping fit over the winter. Highly recommended.

    Great bike comfortable riding position so much better than my refurbished steel road bike that I changed to flat bars due to the riding position (now defunct). This bike is great to ride only the wet weather is stopping me have to use the Hybrid for now. If I had to find a fault it would be the white bar tape soon gets dirty but will change to a more suitable colour when they need changing. Rutland were great to deal with. Thumbs up

    Had this for a couple of weeks now and racked up approx 200 miles already. So easy to ride and pretty comfy riding position. Saddle can be a bit hard but should think no worse than any other road bike. £ for £ this has to be the best bargain out there. Couldnt see any spec upgrade on the new 2015 defy 3 on the giant website. Absolutely love this bike. Awesome on the flat but even more surprising was how well I could get up the hills after coming off a trek 30 gear mountain bike I thought Id struggle but this flies up them even managed to get up the hills near Middleton and Rockingham without stopping. (if youre local to corby youll know these are pretty steep hills) Rear gears needed a tweak after a couple of rides but the guys at fineshade sorted them within 10 mins. As always superb service from lee and Arron. My one negative would be the tyres. Had a puncture on the second ride and with winter coming up decided to upgrade them to the Continental 4 seasons (purchased of course from rutland cycles). Amazingly these tyres while providing better protection and grip are still lighter than the giant tyres provided so would definitely recommend a tyre upgrade on the bike. Other than this superb value for money and a brilliant introduction I to the world of road bikes. Need some clips and shoes now for Xmas and Im all set for some serious miles next year.

    Giant Defy 3 2014 Road Bike White Red Grey Had this for a couple of weeks now and racked up approx 200 miles already. So easy to ride and pretty comfy riding position. Saddle can be a bit hard but should think no worse than any other road bike. £ for £ this has to be the best bargain out there. Couldnt see any spec upgrade on the new 2015 defy 3 on the giant website. Absolutely love this bike. Awesome on the flat but even more surprising was how well I could get up the hills after coming off a trek 30 gear mountain bike I thought Id struggle but this flies up them even managed to get up the hills near Middleton and Rockingham without stopping. (if youre local to corby youll know these are pretty steep hills) Rear gears needed a tweak after a couple of rides but the guys at fineshade sorted them within 10 mins. As always superb service from lee and Arron. My one negative would be the tyres.

    Bike delivered in good shape, free mudguards not fitted but no problems. Have ridden 60k round trip commute to work a couple times now and bike very pleasant to ride. Feels much quicker than the steel 10 speed 1979 Raleigh stratos that it replaces, though GPS tracks and timings do not support this feeling so not actually a significant advance after 35 years. The 18 gears are much nicer to operate but dont actually have that much more overall range compared to 10 of old bike. Skinny slick mean much less stable on the rougher parts of tracks and in autumn leaves. Still I am happy with the bike and much prefer riding it to the old one. Maybe having wheels that are actually round is a novelty! I would have like disk brakes, cause I like gadgets and new tech, but the road brakes actually work fine even in wet. Ride seems not too harsh unless hit a speed ramp or pothole at high speed, then feels alarmingly fragile. Overall great bike, Excellent value for money! Recommend to others.

    Just rode my first sportive on this bike. Very comfy bike, feels really secure around the corners, brakes are very effective. I changed the saddle and plan to upgrade the seat post which I noticed is heavy and in the summer get better wheels with the money I saved buying at Rutland.

    Arrived yesterday in quick time as usual. For £399 its an absolute bargain. This is my winter/ turbo trainer bike to save my defy 0 for sunny days. A great starter bike, sora groupo is a bit clunky compared to ultegra but half the cost. Rode it on the road today and smashed my pal on a boardman team carbon by 2 mins.

    Love it... My first road bike after hitting the darkside from the MTB world. Agile, light, nimble, comfortable, climbs well and is a real steal at the price. Definitely a Giant fan now, but I do have one gripe... The bottom bracket is made of chocolate and mine needs replacing after less than 1000km. My MTB bracket is still going strong after many, many more kms than that.....

    Took advice from a number of informed avid cyclists before purchasing this bike, have a now had the pleasure of riding it a few times and can confirm all the reviews are spot on, a great bike at twice the price!! At £399.99 you simply cant go wrong, if you didnt like it you could strip it down and sell the individual parts and make a tidy profit!!

  • I'm 6" 1 and my inside leg is 34 inch would the large frame be suitable
    Question asked by Tom on May 13 2015 2:20PM
    You are right on the border of the M/L and the Large. The best thing I can advise you to do in this case would be to pop in store if possible and see if we have some free for you to be able to test out and go from there. Thank you, Eleanor
    Your question was answered by ,
  • I'm 6.0ft, would a large be too big?
    Question asked by Will on Apr 12 2015 6:11PM
    I think it would be, I feel you would be more comfortable on the Medium/Large frame. Thank you, Eleanor
    Your question was answered by ,
  • I am 6`4", is the L suitable for me?
    Question asked by richard on Apr 6 2015 7:46PM
    Working with just your height, I think the large would be a bit too small, I think an extra large would suit, but, as I don't know your inside leg length, I can't say for certain. The best advice I can give you is to pop into your local bike store, ask to be sized up for a road bike and they should be more than happy to help. Thank you, Eleanor
    Your question was answered by ,
  • I'm approx 6ft 1.5in and inside leg approx 86 cm. would the large be ok
    Question asked by Mark on Apr 6 2015 6:12PM
    I think that you would be fine on the large, I can only go off a rough guide so the best thing to do would be pop into your local bike shop and ask to be sized up properly and then go from there for a definite size confirmation. Thank you, Eleanor
    Your question was answered by ,
  • I'm 5 ft 11' what size bike would you reccommend?
    Question asked by Ricky on Mar 20 2015 6:22PM

  • Can I try this bike at Grafham?
    Question asked by Steven on Jan 7 2015 11:06AM
    Hi Steven, You are able to select this bike as 'Click & Collect' at Grafham store. You would place the order as normal, chose to collect from Grafham and you are able to have a look at the bike before you take this away, any issues with size or it not being what you thought it would be should be made obvious at this stage.

    Question asked by Carlos on Jan 7 2015 11:05AM

  • Will this bike fit?
    Question asked by Richard on Oct 30 2014 12:37PM
    Hi Richard, As a general rule, I've found if a lady is riding a female specific bike in Medium then changes to a gents bike going down a size is more comfortable. You may have to revise the stem length but it would certainly be rideable. The women's equivalent is the Avail road bike range.

  • What size bike do I need?
    Question asked by Chris on Oct 29 2014 6:58PM
    Hi Chris, You're a bit shorter than me and I am spanning the M & ML sizing. I would say the M compact size would be comfortable. With a 32 leg you might find the S size a bit cramped.
    Your question was answered by ,
  • I am not sure about the size medium as I am 5ft 7ins 32 inside leg , would small fit better.
    Question asked by Chris on Oct 21 2014 7:58PM
    Hi Chris, I'm 5ft 8 and 32 leg. I fit at the top end of the Medium bike sizing so I'd say you were fine for a Medium.
