Product Details

2012 Giant Roam 2

Roam the globe, or just the various roads and paths on your commute, aboard Giant's versatile Roam 2! You'll go farther with a light, responsive aluminum frame and the bump-absorbing suspension fork with 63mm of road-smoothing travel. No matter where you ride, the fast-rolling aluminum wheels and knobby tires grant you traction over any surface. And, you'll also love the easy-pedaling Shimano/SRAM 24-speed drivetrain, the supportive seat and the confidence-inspiring linear-pull brakes.

      This is a fantastic bike! It moves quick and very responsive! It's been going strong each and everytime I take it out! I took it out on a light to heavy city commutes, long local bike trails and a couple of long 200+ mile tours and its been a dream... Thank You Giant!!!!!!

      Comments:

      I live relativley close to where I work, so I decided to "go green" and began biking to work. The Roam 2 is a great bike to for commuting and for recreational long rides on the weekend. It handles obstacles and hills quite well. The only issue I found was that the handle bar grips slightly roll, but overall I'd say that it's a great bike for commuting and riding for fitness, not for competition.

            I bought the bike to ride rails to trails, but I'm also using it for errands and short trips. Great for short (1-5 mile) errands, trips to the gym, library, etc.
