    Default CaveMan's New Wheels (Pic Heavy)

    CaveMan came in a couple weeks ago ready to pick up a road bike and start putting down some serious miles under his own power. We talked about budget, needs, bike style, etc. and decided on a 2014 Giant Defy 2. It came in yesterday, so I got to work this morning getting him ready to ride.

    Here she is outta the box:


    Getting her unpacked:


    Carbon fork for lightweight and some shock absorption:


    I told CaveMan I'd only use the hammer 'gently':


    Truing up the front wheel:


    That seat is a beauty:


    Going clipless on the pedals. Watch out CaveMan!


    Gotta adjust the hubs:


    9 Speed rear cassette:


    Front Brake adjustment:


    Handlebar Swap to make his ClipOns work:


    New Bars installed:


    Gotta have the clip ons if you're gonna go fast!


    Here she is, just waiting for Cave to come pick her up:


    The finishing touch:


    Hope you love it CaveMan!
