Rated 4 out of 5 by from A world of change This product is in general very good. I like the way it works now that they are fit well for me, but it did take some time to fit. I started having some trouble with two things. First, I would have some back pain and my forearms wouldn't be supported. I fixed this by moving both my seat, and the bars themselves to the right position. This is tough because I'm 5'9", but I have such long legs that I ride a 58. i adjusted the armrests to hold my arms about an inch from my elbows, which seems ideal. Secondly, I had trouble controlling sharp turns, and as it was pointed out by my local REI bike tech (Mitch at Santa Barbara REI) I could change the horizontal angle of my armrests so that I would have the best control over my bike. The only other problem is that there is no bar tape included, so I would recommend buying some (approx. $10) that matches the color of your drop bars tape and having the bike tech install it for you, assuming you haven't before. It will look and feel better when installed by a pro.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Install & Works Planning on my first tri in four months. Bought these to add to my road bike. I installed them quickly and they felt very secure. They appear to be very versatile as far as calibrating to your specific position. I'm sure as I grow into sport they'll still be useful. I'd give them a perfect rating, but I'm still too new to aeros to judge.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy with caution Although these came highly recommended by my coach, I found them to be very "cheesy". May have been a little better had they been professionally installed. Went out and bought a Tri bike instead (with higher quality aerobars).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I highly recommend I bought these to use as resting pedestals for my arms while on lengthy rides and OMG has it been what I most needed !!! I'm not a Time Trial rider...if you are, you should consider something else. Not speaking negatively towards this product at all, but if you're a TT rider you would buy something lighter and of different construct materials. That said, these bars have helped me cut through windy areas and minimized wind resistance. I love how the mounts are adjustable to anyone's physique. Lastly and not a negative, I ride a Fuji Newest 2.0 and it's bars are thin so you'll need to be careful and patient as to where you mount them. Their mounts are meant for beefier bars than those on my bike. I only gave them a 4 star because it appears that the bends are just a little off from one bar to the other, not that anyone would tell unless it's grossly off and I think you'd notice it before you bought it. I didn't, which goes to say how little they are "off". I love them and I highly recommend them. Want TT grade? Buy something lighter and more suitable to your $2000+ bike (aka "something a whole lot more expensive than these").

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Barely adequate substitute for original product As I cycle tourist, I really appreciated the original profile bars ("clip-ons") because they served two purposes: providing a front rack for my waist pack of instant- access essentials (like wallet, windbreaker, repair kit), and helmet, when not being worn; AND a great place to hide out from a stiff head-wind. The old profile bars eventually stripped out their connecting bolts, so I was a ready customer for replacement bars, But, like so much of what is really useful, they weren't made anymore. The replacement bars were bent in together so they couldn't be used as a rack. Now come these new bars that attach independently of each other. I can move them as far apart as I like to create a rack (provided I come up with the extra shims necessary for that), but the braces are no longer OVER the bars, but set off from them so far as to discourage their use when the bars are wide enough to create the rack I need. The braces are adjustable, but end up having to be cantilevered at an angle to keep from blocking normal access to the corner of my drop bars. Except for their problematic interface with the bars (tending to strip the threads) the original product was mire useful to me for touring. As in most endeavors requiring attention to weight and bulk of equipment, an ideal piece of gear should have more than one use.

Will the Profile T1 Alluminum Aero bars fit a Giant Defy 3 bike?

Asked by: GotGark
While we do not carry Giant bikes, we believe the T1+ Aluminum Aero Bars should fit your Defy 3. Giant has the handlebars listed on their 2015 model as 31.8mm. The T1+ bars fit 26.0 - 31.8mm handlebars.
