Great Bike!

Best Uses:
This is a solid bike, very dependable and strong for a foldable. I've had mine for 9 months now and I still love the bike. It also has the quality of GIANT which means all of the parts last.

Great foldie overall

Best Uses:
Overall, good folding bike design, but I'd prefer larger wheels such as 24" or 26".

Great Ride And Handling, Durable, Packs Well, Comfortable, Lightweight

Best Uses:
Final Destination Bike
This bike is mainly used as either transportation to a hotel from a rural airport, or local transport around the airport. I can easily go thru the aircraft door and fit two of these in the cargo area of my Cessna 152. It only weighs 28 pounds each. The components are nice upgrades like trigger shifters instead hard to use twist types. Best of all this bike rides like the bigger bikes, everything about this bike screams QUALITY.

How does Giant do it?

Solid, Comfortable, Great Ride, Easy To Fold And Transpor, Fun To Ride
Best Uses:
Fun, Exercise, Commuting, Paved Trails
I wanted to get a folding bike to travel to various bike trails and didn't want a bike rack on my car. For months,I researched the reviews of all the brands out there, and decided the Giant was the one I wanted to try and was happy to see the number one rated bike shop in the area carried the brand. My husband was sure the folders would be uncomfortable and slow, and that I was crazy for even thinking about one. I insisted on trying one and loved it immediately. My husband was still skeptical until he got on and rode...then he was sold! We purchased two of the model with the fenders and rack, folded them and put them both in the back of the Rav-4 without having to put the back seat down and away we went. We've ridden over 50 miles so far (have only had them a week) and the bikes are awesome; responsive, smooth, fun, and are better or as good as very nice full-size bikes we both have. My husband raves about the bikes more than I do! A plus for me is that I am small framed and not very strong, and I can fold the bike and put it into the back of the SUV without any effort or problem at all. We both agree these bikes were a great purchase. The young man who helped us in Rocky River was super nice, patient and helpful and made sure the bikes were in good working order before we left the shop.

I ride this bike.

Great Components, Durable, Lightweight, Many adjustments
Only one tire size
Best Uses:
This bike is my first in 20 years, or so. My first day, I lowered the seat all the way and my 8 year-old rode it easily. One size means almost anyone can ride this bike, easy to share among the family. I take it on the buss and train. I ride every Friday 25 miles just for fun. However, the saddle is really a 10 mile saddle, but it is OK up to 30, but never cross country. The tires are 1.25; hard to find tubes and wider tires would be softer ride. The spring in the fancy kick stand broke, replaced with no questions. The rack only holds about 20 lbs. So, on the road I just go about 10 to 15 MPH. It is so much fun to ride. Handling is very quick as you cannot take yout hand off the bars. I do not ride my old 700 mm any more. I do not want a new bike. This one is all I need for all city travel. I had to buy lights, water bottle rack and a lock, as extra.

Great for out-of-shape people like me

Lightweight, Durable, Great Components
Best Uses:
Pavement, Commuting
I bought this bike yesterday and it is amazing. It folded up and fit nicely in my trunk. The woman who helped me did a great job explaining different bike features so I could get a bike that fit what I wanted. I'm so excited to go biking with my kids now. I am borderline obese and completely out-of-shape, but I went eight miles yesterday, and am surprised that my legs aren't sore.
