Comments:

I bought this bike for a daily commute (to work, to lunch, back to work, and home. 10 miles daily total). Before this I hadn't ridden a bike in over 10 years. I was surprised at how easy it was to ride it. There is a perfect gear for every climb and descent. Thanks to the wide range of gears I can show up at the office without being a sweaty mess each morningThe best part is the bike is easy enough to ride that I'm not a sweaty mess when I get into the office.

"THE" Commuter Bicycle

  • Durable

Cons

  • A Little Slow

Best Uses

  • Commuting/City

Comments:

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.

      Comments:

      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.
