About Giant Defy Advanced SL Sizing for 167cm Rider

Postby XtremeCheater » Wed Aug 29, 2018 3:56 pm

Hello all,

I recently get an offer, 1450 for Giant Defy Advanced SL1 Disc 2016 size M. Will it suitable for me? I currently have Giant TCR in S tough, the top tube feel a little low, so I think the M size of defy 'might' fit.

You're right at the bottom of the range for a size S (167cm to 173cm). A size M will be too large.

Yep. I'm 168 and ride a small sized Defy and TCR.
I wouldn't want to ride anything larger.

Sizing is very similar across Giant's range. If you're a Small in a TCR, you'll be a Small in a Defy as well.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.

You would ride a small as I have a Defy and 170cm.
S is a good fit.

That's true.
Previous TCR was S and that was almost identical to my Defy in S.
