    I was looking at the Escape 2 and a Trek FX3 and I couldn't justify the extra $200 plus. Used the cash on extra's at the bike shop. Ed at Rideaway Bicycles at Huebner Oaks location in San Antonio was extremely helpful and answered all my questions with absolutely no pressure at all. The bike rides incredibly smooth and I got in a good 20 mile ride the day I picked it up. Haven't had a day above 30 degrees since but it's looking good for this weekend.

    A great value--I will ride this bike for a long time

    Comments:

    This is just a great all-around bike. A substantial upgrade from the Escape 3, it comes with better derailleurs, better brakes, better cranks, wheels... you name it, it's better, and that transmits to a better quality ride. It's smooth and stable with great control and is highly nimble. Even traveling at fairly high speed (30+mph) down hills, I never felt like the bike was unstable. The only con is that I wish it was a little lighter. It's not heavy, but if it was three or four pounds lighter, it would probably be perfect. But that said, it's certainly not a heavy bike by any stretch. If you're looking for a great value in a hybrid bike that you can use for exercise, commuting, or casual riding on bike paths, you can't go wrong with this hybrid.

      My first "real" bike purchase as an adult. This bike has been excellent thus far. I ride it 8 miles round trip to work each day and it's wonderful. My only complain is that switching between gears to quickly can sometimes cause the chain to slip/jolt back and forth but some fine tuning seemed to adjust that. The seat isn't comfortable by my opinion but I've definitely gotten used to it.

      All around a great bike! I ended up being too heavy (240lbs) or legs too strong for the drive train to hold up. Problem solved by upgrading to the escape 1. The seat was surprisingly good. My only complaint is the pedals.

          I've been riding for 3 years now, my last bike was a Mongoose mountain bike. This is a huge upgrade, the Escape 2 is much sturdier, lighter, looks much better and is a joy to ride! The handlebars feel very strong and are comfortable. My first time out with it I rode it for 5 hours, my butt was getting sore the last hour or so so I replaced the seat with a Cloud 9 now the bike is perfect! My last bike was horrible going up hill but with the Giant it's very easy. This is the absolute best bike I've ever been on.

                  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.
