I don’t think a TT bike needs disc brakes. The Propel is a decent frame though. Good luck.I have recently signed up to do my first Ironman in youghal next June and I need to upgrade from my giant defy 3 I’ve been looking at the giant propel advanced disc! What are people’s thoughts or advice
Very true but unfortunately my defy needs more work than it’s worth so it needs to be changed plus it’s slightly too big for me! So I’m inclined to lean towards the propel even though it’s pricey it will make the Long rides more enjoyable speed wise but I am here looking for advice and opinions so thank youYour Defy will do the job, although it won't set your rivals Y fronts alight with jealously. I'd be inclined to do an event or two first and then choose a bike that suit your needs, not try to guess in advance what will work best. It's your money though,
Seems to be a potential issue (search the forum). Also, fixing harder should cable snapIs that a common occurrence?
Yes it will because, at the end of the day, the OP has to look at it all the time and do miles and mile on it. I couldn't stand riding and having to look at a bike I'm not visually satisfied with. Would just make me a grumpy bastard.OK so it looks prettier. But will that really help?
