Nice Defy 3. I've only test ridden a friends Defy 2, my bike shop don't let people test ride their bikes so am yet to see how the '11 #4 rides in comparison.
How do you find it for long distance rides?

I've not actually done any long distance on it to be honest, I only got it a little-ish while ago. In fact, on the return journey home from when that picture was taken (the frames maiden voyage) I was offed by a dog which took it out of action for a couple of weeks!

I didn't really do any long distance rides on the SCR, 101.4 miles was the longest but the Defy is noticeably more comfortable with less road buzz etc so I imagine it would be OK

Thanks for the reply. My Defy comes with a steel fork so I'll be upgrading the wheels,fork and groupo over time. Mainly wheels first for the fact that the wheels weigh around 3 kilos for the pair.
