Product Details

2014 Giant Revolt 2

From your daily commute to a month-long bike tour, Giant's Revolt 2 has you covered. The feathery ALUXX aluminum frame features endurance-oriented geometry and plenty of clearance for fenders or high-volume knobby tires, and the carbon fork soaks up the buzz from rough pavement and gravel trails alike. A hill-topping Shimano 2x8 drivetrain features the company's trademark light action, and smooth shifts, while Avid BB5 mechanical road disc brakes boast smooth and powerful braking under all conditions. Finally, sturdy aluminum wheels wrapped in grippy Giant rubber will keep you rolling strong no matter where your ride takes you.

    About Me Advanced

    Comments:

    I actually have one of these, so I thought I'd review it (as opposed to someone posting an LA Times article) I'm a lifelong mountian bike rider, but wanted to get something more road bike like for my work commute in the city, I also wanted to start doing longer training rides on the road. After a lot of research, I decided to not go with a classic road bike because the roads where I live (Toronto) are usually pretty busted up from frost, plus I ride all year round and needed something that could handle a little snow and ice. I started looking at cyclocross bikes and came upon the Giant Revolt 2. So far it's been great, light enough, handles well and the components (group set) perforn just fine. It hasn't snowed yet, but I've taken the bike on some trails (hard packed dirt, nothing too technical) and it's handled them well. If your needs are any of the ones I've mentioned, i'd recomend the Revolt 2, it's a good bike for the price, I'm very happy with it.

    Comments:

    Total package Giant Revolt 2: The aluminum-framed gravel grinder has a carbon-fiber fork, disk brakes with top-of-the-bar brake levers (in addition to normal hood brakes) and lots of clearance for wider tires. Likes: Terrific value, safety, style and versatility. The Revolt's top-of-the-bar "sissy" brakes distinguish this bike, allowing you to brake while keeping your hands in the most-used riding position instead of switching to the hoods. The sporty frame design (with lower rear-seat stays) allows clearance for 2-inch-wide 29er mountain-bike tires to handle true off-road riding. The 700-by-35c semi-knobby tires are standard. The16-speed Shimano Claris drivetrain is low budget but works great and even has helpful built-in gear-indicator windows. With a vibration-dampening carbon-fiber fork and threaded frame holes for front and rear racks, this is a great deal and the best bike of the bunch, even though it is far less expensive than the rest and is at the low end of Giant's three-bike Revolt line. Dislikes: None
