And it all moves on easy-rolling 700c wheels and a precision 24-speed drivetrain that makes easy work of the ups, while powerful linear-pull brakes give you control on the downs.

          I bike 20 miles round trip a day. This bike is comfortable and fun to ride. I wanted something fast that was more comfortable than a rode bike. This is a great commute bike for the hills in southern California. I enjoy my ride to and from work! Very sturdy, but light. Good gearing and brakes. Nice bike overall!

          The geometry of this bike is very comfortable and seems stable at high speed. The frame is strong, light, and forgiving on rough roads. For the price, it's hard to beat this bike.

            Comments:

            I primarily use this bike to commute 7 miles to/from work and could not be more satisfied. My ride includes a number of moderate climbs that have become practically effortless with this bike. Getting to and from work is now the best part of my work day not to mention all the gas $ saved and pounds lost. I test rode a number of different bikes in my price range and found this one to be the best value for the money.

              I used the bike for road fitness over the winter, 3500 kms from Dec. May 2012. This is bike that is very well built. Find the right seat and a good set of brake pads and you will have a great bike to enjoy.

                  I replaced an older hybrid. This bike is so much fun for a good workout. [*] Cycles in [*] put me into the right bike.I'm taking my son back for his own Giant Hybrid. Giant bikes are all they are cranked up to be.

                    I'm 6'3" 235 lbs and needed a bike that had an XL frame. Escape 2 was recommended by a dealer for pleasure rides on light trails and paved paths. I ride an averagae of 80-120 per week, recently road the Silver Comet Trail from Atlanta, Ga. to Alabama (64 miles) and have over 2000 miles on my bike. Giant is a quality product that is durable, comfortable and reliable.
