Sometimes a neighborhood cruise or ride downtown just doesn't scratch that itch. You need a bike you can get adventurous on. Giant's Roam 3 is right up your alley. Or out of, as the case may be.
Hybrid bicycles are meant to be versatile, but the new Roam series takes it to a new level. The lightweight ALUXX aluminum frame is there, but so are wider, meatier tires. Mounts for fenders and a rear rack for in-town commuting are there, but so is an SR Suntour suspension fork for handling challenging surfaces. Flat handlebars and an upright fit helps you see the road -or trail- ahead. The clever D-Fuse seatpost takes the edge off of crumbling campground roads and nature trails.
Shimano's 8-speed shifters, double crankset and 11-34T cassette all work together in concert when you're tackling roller-coaster terrain. Treaded tubeless 700x42c Crosscut tires boast tenacious grip, but are also more flat-resistant. The latest hydraulic Tektro disc brakes make every descent more predictable, especially in the rain. Topped off with a comfy Sport Comfort saddle, the Roam 3 might be that just-right machine for all those trails yet to be discovered.
