The city bike scene has gotten a bit crowded, hasn't it? But Giant's Escape 2 Disc rises above the noise with a no-nonsense machine that delives solid value for money.
A lightweight aluminum frame and alloy fork are just the starting points for this useful bike. Tektro cable-operated disc brakes make stopping in the rain much less terrifying. Shimano shifters and derailleurs make gear changes quick and precise. A 48/38/28T triple crankset and 14-34T Shimano cassette brings a huge gearing range to the Escape 3 Disc, making it perfect for grocery runs in hilly terrain. Alloy wheels and puncture-resistant S-X3 700x38c tires offer a smooth ride feel, while alloy cockpit components keep the Escape 2 Disc's overall weight nice and low. A comfy saddle tops off a great machine for everyday riding!
"Townie bike" just isn't the right label for the Escape 2 Disc. It looks too good, it's just too quick, and you'll want to ride it just for fun!
The Escape 2 Disc checks plenty of boxes for an around-town runabout. It boasts light weight with an ALUXX-grade aluminum frame, alloy fork and aluminum wheels. Shifting is smooth and quick with Shimano 8-speed shifters and derailleurs. A lightweight 46/30T crankset and 11-34T Shimano cassette offer a wide gearing range for challenging hills and hauling bulky groceries. 700x38c S-X2 semi-treaded tires add confident grip on pavement and gravel alike. Trips in the rain can be worry-free with Tektro's hydraulic disc brakes to bring excellent stopping power in all conditions. A comfortable saddle sits atop an alloy D-Fuse seatpost, providing a comfortable perch for day trips. Mounts for racks, fenders and bottle cages make the Escape 2 Disc a practical bike as well as a sleek and stylish machine.
A bike that is more than just a grocery-getter or neighborhood cruiser can give you the freedom to explore!
The Dual Sport 2 was built with the idea that the ride doesn't end when the pavement does. Knobby Bontrager GR1 Comp tires boast plenty of grip on imperfect surfaces, while an SR Suntour NEX suspension fork helps keep the ride smooth and stable. The Dual Sport 2's Alpha Gold aluminum frame is not only light, but is also equipped with rack, bottle cage and fender mounts for added versatility. There's even an aperture in the left chainstay for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) for keeping track of rides with a Bontrager computer or smartphone app. Internal cable routing looks clean and sleek, too. Shimano 9-speed shifters and derailleurs provide fingertip operation and long service life. A 46/30T alloy double crankset and 11-36T Shimano cassette bring a wide gearing range for steep climbs and heavy loads. Descend steep hills with confidence, thanks to the all-weather performance of Tektro hydraulic disc brakes. A comfy Bontrager Sport saddle, accessory-ready alloy Blendr stem and alloy handlebar finishes off this adventurous runabout.
