The Giant Escape 1 is a nice step above our most popular basic street bike, the Escape 2. It comes equipped with nicer 9-speed drivetrain parts, which shift smoother and hold their adjustment better. It also has a lightweight carbon fork to smooth out the ride and temper the weight a bit. The Escape 1 can be used as both a fitness road bike and a city commute bike. The picture looks like a plain black bike, but it’s got a stripe of bright yellow on top of the frame. Super versatile and a lot of bang for the buck. Come take one for a spin.
