"Townie bike" just isn't the right label for the Escape 2 Disc. It looks too good, it's just too quick, and you 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 SX-2 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. Mounts for racks, fenders and bottle cages make the Escape 2 Disc a practical bike as well as a sleek and stylish machine.
