New Toy - Giant Defy 1 Road Bike

For some time I have been toying with the idea of getting a Road Bike and after my first Tri I felt that I should run a road bike in my next Tri. Today I purchased (need a fitting, etc which is happening tomorrow) Giant Defy 1 from the guys at Freedom Machine in Port Melbourne

Front Derail: Shimano Tiagra
Rear Derail: Shimano Tiagra
Gear Levers: Shimano Tiagra 9spd STI
Brake Levers: Shimano Tiagra

Cranks: Shimano Tiagra Compact Integrated 34/50T

Free Wheel: Shimano HG-50 12-26T 9spd
Handlebars: Raceface Ride Shallow Drop

Until next time from Team-LSD
