Strengths:    Nice and nimble bike. Not too heavy. Alu fork lightens up the front end.
Shifting has been great thus far. I don't love the 'thumb-only' style of the X4 shifters, but I think I'll get used to it.
At the price point, it's a pretty hard bike to beat.


Weaknesses:    Welds aren't very pretty.
Pedals are pretty rubbish.
Stock wheels are hogs.


Bottom Line:   
Great ride for the money.

Giant Escape

Just picked it up this weekend. This bike definitely represents good value in the category. Did quite a few comparisons and couldn't find anything close in Toronto. Tried some KHS, Kona and Specialized. Rides really nicely. Pretty agile and stiff for a hybrid. Surprised at the shifting from ... Read More »

I trashed my rear wheel today... rim is beyond repair. I am going to de-lace it and build up a new wheel (hopefully, if i can get one in time) this week. I was having problems at lower pressures with my 34c grifo rolling over in corners, primarily the rear (the trashed wheel). Any reason i can' ... Read More »

Escape New York

Where would be the best spot to park cars? I noticed while riding my bike along Riverside Road that a lot of cyclists park their cars there on Saturdays. Is it free parking on Saturdays?Read More »
