Strengths:    Speed. Comfort. Reliability.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
I bought my Giant Escape 2 on 1/09/13 and I have logged 256 miles on it ( 3 weeks ) and I love this bike! What I love most about it is how fast it goes. It has 700x32 tires on it but you can put thinner ones if you need to go even faster. I ride for fun, exercise, and for stress relief. I ride 300-400 miles a month. I sold my Giant Sedona ST ( another great bike ) and bought this because of how much I ride, the Sedona was great for a 26inch but this is even better, it’s more of a road bike which is what I wanted. I test rode the Cannondale Quick 6 and didn’t like it at all, it just didn’t feel right for me. I test rode the Escape 2 and loved it. Test ride the Giant Escape 2, I think you’ll love it too. I heard other cyclists say, even ones who own different brands, that Giant gives you more for your money. They sure did!

Strengths:    Durable, fast, comfortable, reliable

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I bought this bike while on the road for work for an extended period, and I loved it so much that I shipped it home to use as my primary bike. Its low cost and yet brilliantly comfortable ride make it one of the best bargains on the market. Since 9/12 I have logged over 630 miles on my Giant Escape 2, and now that I've upgraded to a more costly road bike, this has become my urban commuter bike, replacing my KHS Urban Xpress, which isn't as fast or durable as my Giant. It was, without a doubt, the best $400 I have spent in my life. I love this bike!

Strengths:    Fast, Fun, Appearance.

Weaknesses:    Saddle

Bottom Line:   
I bought this bike to be my first commuter bike ever. I had planned on riding 14 miles R/T from my place to work everyday. After using this bike for 1 month I must say that I can't get enough of it. My first week of having it I easily put 100 miles on it. Very smooth ride and the bike itself is attractive and fast. As another reviewer had said, it's easy to keep up with those spandex boys. This has made me a believer in the Giant brand and I would look at other models in the future.

Strengths:    works well in nyc terrain.

Weaknesses:    some front wheel brake squeaking from picking up oil? in manhattan.
i wish gear changes were faster.


Bottom Line:   
this is my first real bicycle. comparison is to an old murray toy's r us type bike. I have approx 30 miles on this bike in manhattan and it does what i need it to do. it has enough gearing to handle the hills both up and down. brakes work great. its lighter than my old bike. it looks really cool. i'm really happy with this as my starter bike for nyc use. I'm a biking novice and this suits me great.
