Giant Defy 5 Best Value Road Bike Video Review

Giant Defy 5 Best Value Road Bike Video Review


The Giant Defy 5 road bike is an incredible value. For $660 you get a road bike with a high quality aluminum frame from the worlds largest producer of bicycle frames – Giant. Because they’re so large they can offer a much better value per dollar than many of their competitors. That makes the Defy 5 an incredible value to you if you’re just looking to get onto a road bike for the first time. You shouldn’t feel like you need to spend thousands of dollars in order to start riding road bicycles. This is an entry level bike that is fast, comfortable, and very easy to start out with. I’d recommend the Defy 5 to anyone looking to get into road biking!


  1. So will this bike not be good for going off road/crossing a dry creek over summer?

  2. thanks for sharing the video, is this bike fast.

  3. Hi, how tall are you for you to use the XL Frame?

  4. can u fit 28mm tires ? ty

  5. no , you don't REALLY get benefits . unless of course differences count realistically … relative to reality .

  6. Here in Taiwan only Defy3. Is that true?

  7. Cannodale caad 8 sora VS Giant defy 3 sora which is better in concern to performance?

    I like his reviews on bikes. Keep on making more please.

  9. Hey out of interest do you think compact frames give the appearance of being small for the rider as opposed to standard road bike geometry? It may be just something I see because I'm not used to it. Nice channel by the way 👍

  10. I got the defy 3 that I use for winter riding. I think bikes in this price range are great if you don't want to ruin your "nice" bike. I also have a specialized Paris roubaix which is awesome

  11. You said you're riding the XL but I'm 6'3 and 36" inside leg and the size chart says L for me!?

  12. Carlos Augusto Sànchez Castañeda

    What's the frame weight?

  13. the stem is wrong attached

  14. nice review of a real world bike. I found the music annoying as I was trying to listen to the geezer.

  15. Mine is the L. 5. It was a birthday gift (09-17). Where might I find more information?. I really LOVE the features, design and overall performance

  16. dontbothermewithchannels

    Great review. And nice intro for beginners. Keep the good work up.

  17. Awesome little review! Got a kinda beat up used Giant Defy for my first bike and well it only took 300 miles on that machine to know I wanted more. It was a proper gateway drug! Do you have any vids on Hybrids?

  18. Can you get a caad12 for similar price?

  19. never knew claris comes with brace-on derailleur!

  20. Ben Braceletspurple

    If the 60cm framed' head tube didn't put me in the sky I would've bought thisbike, but it is not very racy so I had to pass.

  21. West Side greenway?

  22. Holy cow, you look like Conor McGregor! 🙂 Great bike reviews, Peter! Please keep them coming and maybe some wheel & component reviews too!

  23. Nick Simmering

    Very good bike for sure. The shifters were an update from my stem shifters.

  24. Random Bike Trips

    Peter, sorry but I gotta ask, are you sponsored by Giant? Love the channel. Hope it continues to grow.

  25. orange moonglows
