Details

The "fitness bike" has been around a lot longer than you'd think. Not really a racer, but not a clumsy beach cruiser, either. Something that delivers what you want in a bike.


Liv's Thrive series takes the idea that a better-fitting fitness bike makes every mile more enjoyable, and the rider would be more inclined to ride further. Giant's own ALUXX-grade aluminum is used to build the frame, helping to keep weight down while keeping overall strength high. Internal cable routing, a hidden seatpost binder and flat-mount disc brakes gives the Thrive 2 a sleek look. Up front, an Advanced-Grade Composite carbon fiber fork does an excellent job of soaking up fatiguing vibration. Shifting duties are taken up by Shimano's 9-speed Sora road components. A set of Sora flat-bar shifters put the gear changing at your fingertips, while Sora derailleurs operate with lightning-quickness. An alloy FSA Omega 50/34T compact crankset and 11-34T Shimano cassette offers a huge gearing range, making challenging hills and ascents less intimidating. Yes, that's a 1-to-1 ratio for the easiest gear! Alloy GX Disc wheels are wrapped with Giant's S-R3 AC 700x32c smooth-tread tires, giving the Thrive 2 instant acceleration and confident handling. Hydraulic disc brakes boast impressive stopping power, even in wet and rainy conditions. A clever D-Fuse seatpost and Liv Sport saddle helps you forget about the quality (or lack thereof...) of the road surface. An alloy stem and handlebar completes the cockpit of this high-value runabout.
