Product Details

2014 Giant Escape RX

Road-bike speed paired with the confidence and stability of a flat handlebar makes Giant's Escape RX the perfect prescription for riding pleasure. The Giant ALUXX SL aluminum frame sports a carbon fork for reduced weight and nimble handling. It damps road vibrations before they get to your hands and gives the bike a lively feeling. Easy-rolling 700c wheels with flat-resistant tires make you want to take the long way home. Plus, pedaling is and staying fit is easy with a 30-speed Shimano drivetrain that has simple-to-use shifters and powerful brakes. Plus, the Giant stem, bar and seatpost are ride everyday reliable.

    Comments:

    Love this bike after about 120 miles, fast smooth ride, no problems at all. I did add a composite bar with a slight rise, foam grips and nicer pedals with larger area and studs. I do a lot of riding on the paved paths and the gravel paths, and love being able to smoke past the mountain bikes. Great for the street as you can keep up with the traffic.

    Women's come with bad hand grips.

    Comments:

    I had a men's FCR that came with ergo hand grips. After riding with the hand grips on this women's bike my handswere tingling and going numb. Too much vibration. I put on the ergo grips like the ones on my FCR. No issues any longer.

    Design flaws

    About Me

    Comments:

    I ride 10 miles a day for fitness. Had an FCR. Miss it. This bike is heavier. The sheathed brake lines scrape the frame. I don't like the design. FCR even used has a much better design. This bike has too many issues. I have to use rubber to cover the sheathed brake lines and it scratched the head frame. Not worth the money. I have to make sure the rubber covers are over the sheathing to prevent scratching. Not happy at all.
