Details

Getting from here to there just got a lot more fun with Giant's Escape City. This easy-pedaling and nimble urban-ready ride boasts Giant's famed ALUXX aluminum frame and efficient 700c wheels that spin up to speed almost effortlessly. You also get a sweet-shifting 24-speed drivetrain that lets you cruise over the climbs and grippy linear-pull brakes for the ride back down. And, it's all topped off with a rack so you can take your gear along or pick it up on the way, and fenders to keep you and your trick ride dry and clean should Mother Nature try to dampen your day. You also get a kickstand and bell.

As with another reviewer, the glory days are OVER! On days the old knees don't feel like getting out the road bike, this Giant Escape City is just about the perfect around town bike; especially when you live close to an [...] neighborhood of [...] appropriately & affectionately nick-named "The Hill". Is this a fast bike? Nope. Is it a comfortable bike that can climb hills? Yep. With all the features such as double wall rims, an 8 speed "cassette" rear cog, factory fenders, factory rear rack & reflective whitewall tires…how can you go wrong?

I ride the bike for tow path rides or a nice paced ride with friends. Be it on the tow path or on the paved bike path in the metro park it rides fantastic. The larger tires take the shock away from the rider and give you a smooth enjoyable ride. This bike is a great change of pace ride from the road bike. A great have fun bike.

    It is time to get real. At 70, am I going to cross the US? Am I going to race? Do I want to be bent over on the drops?...can I bend over on the drops? The glory days are over. I went to buy a road bike but walked out with a comfortable bike instead. A bit of a lean on the handle bars, a comfortable seat and even a kick stand, my first. I can still ride hills using the granny gear and keep up with my friends. I can load it up for a nearby camping trip, or just a jacket and rain gear. The tires have some meat on them and at lower pressure, I am not concerned as much about a flat tire. I don't feel every crack or bump in the road. I'm tired of having a line up my back every time I ride through a puddle. Light weight fenders..I'm happy with my choice..the glory days may be over but I still enjoy several rides a week.
