Giant's Defy Advanced 3 Compact is a road bike with Advanced-Grade Composite frame and a Shimano Ultegra rear derailleur. The new Defy is part of Giant's re-energized 2009 road line. The compact FSA crankset makes quick work of the hills. The advanced-grade composite ensures precise frame alignment. The endurance position geometry helps riders to go further without tiring. Plus, the compact drivetrain gives you the gears to master any grade. The Giant Defy Advanced 3 Compact sports mainly 10-speed Shimano Ultegra components with a Dura-Ace rear derailleur. The aero sculpted main tubes and the new Vector aero seatpost add to the comfort of this product. In fact, the Defy Advanced 3 Compact has many recent design trends, not yet common in other road bikes. In the bottom bracket area, Giant has used integrated bearings, instead of the current threaded external cup design. The increased stiffness is brought about by the extra buttressing of an even wider bottom bracket shell. The taller head tube provides comfortable riding and limits back strain on long hauls. The Defy Advanced 3 Compact comes in Team Blue/Silver/Composite.
