Product Details

2014 Giant Escape 2 W - Women's

Leave your car at home and embrace the open road on Giant's Escape 2 W. The light, responsive ALUXX aluminum frame features an upright, natural, and comfortable riding position. Up front, an aluminum fork steers predictably. 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.

    Comments:

    I have used this bike both for leisure and some commuting. At present I live an hour's drive from my workplace, so unfortunately I can no longer commute on this bike, but all the gears made commuting a breeze even for someone who hadn't been on a bike in years. I had a basket and carrier fitted to my bike (as well as mudguards), which could have made it heavy, but the bike itself was so light to start with that these additions hardly affect the handling at all. Now I use the bike for leisure and going to the shops etc, and it works extremely well for that too. The saddle takes some getting used to, but is fine after a few miles. Overall, an excellent bike for a multitude of uses, and I found it to be great value.

    Comments:

    I have the City version of this bike. My version has upgraded shifters and derailleur. It also comes with fenders and a rack. I haven't been a regular bike rider in many years but I wanted to have more flexibility in my life because I don't own a car. I use this bike primarily for commuting to work and for errands. I also like to go for rides for general fitness and leisure. I would say the only con this bike has is the seat. Depending on how much riding you do, you might want to consider a different seat. It's not hard as a rock, but it's not soft either. I absolutely love this bike. It is extremely light and you sit in a comfortable (almost upright) position which makes it a pleasure to ride. I am not a fitness nut but I find myself wanting to ride this bike every single day. I get the feeling that if I take good care of this bike, it's going to last me for many years. No matter whether you choose the City upgrade or go with the more stripped down version shown here, you won't be sorry.
