There is no doubt that in this case the correct size for the Giant Defy Advanced Pro 1 road bike is the ML.

In fact, I don't think he should make any particular adjustments to the set-up of the bike as it comes out of the shop.

Size L could only be taken into consideration with the desire to create a very "racing" set-up, but at this point it could be too uncomfortable and tiring.

Overall, however, the correct choice is the ML size and then proceed with any modifications to the set-up, possibly with a stem longer than one centimeter.

His Scott, however, had a stem that was too short for his height, so I reckon the size ran a little large.

With these considerations, therefore, I really think that the ML is the best choice to make and then make the necessary adjustments, which as far as I'm concerned, in your case, should be zero.

Excellent endurance racing bike, very comfortable and with excellent value for money.
