Giant or Specialized?

Am looking at buying a winter training bike, and can't decide between the Giant Defy 2 or the Specialized Secteur? Any pointers anyone??

    They are to comercial. Get a nice not so common make!

    The Specialized is a good bike..but have never tried the Giant.
    You wouldn't go too far wrong with the Boardman Comp SC I think it is. A great bike for the price.
    But, as always, it's personal preference - and most importantly fit which is crucial.

    personally, i'd go for the giant, provided the fit is right and comfortable.

    the spesh secteur geometry is very relaxed - more of a longer day sportive/audax sort of thing than an eyeballs out racing frame.
  • Freaky - this won't help you in any way at all but I'm looking for some feedback on the same two manufacturers.

    Finally got approval from her indoors to get my first carbon bike and I've short listed the Specialized Tarmac Comp or the Giant TCR Advanced 2 as there are some end of season deals on the go.

    Any feedback/experience?
