What can I say? It's gorgeous, rugged, and a joy to ride. I have a large. It's a big bike, but light. Feels sturdy, but light and flickable, under this 200 pound six footer.
Overall a very cool bike. Probably one of the best all around do it all bikes. The brakes are excellent. Big downside for me is that when the chain is on the middle chainring, you get major chainrub on the front derailleur when in either of the smallest three gears on the rear sprocket. Neither Fitchburg or another bike shop (Bike Doctor) could tune it out. Fitchburg stated that it is just the case with triple chainrings. I have ridden other triples that had zero chainrub. The bike mechanic at another shop told me that you should never have chainrub in the middle chainring, but he could not tune it out. Either way, you'll have a loud rattle when using the higher rear gears when in the middle chainring. Consider getting the next model up with the SRAM drivetrain.
Great bike for the money. The second Giant bike I've owned. Components are fine. Brakes are very good. Love the rigid forks. Looked for a VERY long time to find something like this.
I use this bike everyday to get to work and everywhere else. This bike is fast and fun! Looks good and rides great! I'm glad to own it.
