Fast and comfortable bike

Been riding a modern stainless steel racer for a few years. Wanted to give carbon and disc brakes a try so after a bit of research went for the Defy. So happy with this bike. It’s insanely comfortable out of the box. Feels like I can do some serious mileage on it without much discomfort. I commute 40 miles a day into London so comfort is a huge factor for me. The D-Fuse seat post I’m please to say isn’t another marketing gimmick and actually works over cobbled and rough terrain to keep the ride very comfy. The Giant Conduct cable to hydraulic disc brake converter works well. Saying that this is my first foray into road disc so for me this has been nothing but a revelation. In wet weather the disc brakes are a god sent. More importantly it requires a lot less hand force to operate. During a typical commute my hands no longer ache when I reach my office from the start stop braking inner city traffic. This bike is no slouch though. It’s plenty stiff around the B.B. and beefed up chainstay area. When you stamp on he pedals it feels very little is lost. It feels very nimble in motion. I’ve beaten all of my previous pb’s specially on slight inclines. And I only had it for couple months. So the negatives, not sure if it’s down to giant or tredz? But the tyres came installed as tubeless great! But. Only the front one has sealant in it. There was no indication this was the case. Had I known I would have put sealant in the rear tyre. Sure enough the rear punctured recently and I was left with no choice but to faff about an hour on a freezing -1degree C morning commute to put a tube in. Tubeless tyres aren’t made to be taken off easily.
