I'd love to see a test of my two year old defy advanced. I reckon it would be scraping around the bottom.. I believe their words is "rides like a blob of jello". :mrgreen:

I'd love to see the results of the Defy Composite range as the Defy composite range isn't exactly a cheaper alternative to the TCR or inferior (one would think)

Yeah... well my Defy Advanced is about as rigid as a half defrosed mullet. :shock: :mrgreen:

250g for a seatpost is a little porky IMO

Haha that's what I said as well. They posted this on Facebook and there were quite a few others making this comment as well

In the end this is just all marketing hype. Some bikes are excluded from their list and their results aren't consistent with results I have seen in other places
