Product Details

2014 Giant Via 2

Leave the gridlock behind and get some fresh air aboard Giant's Via 2. The tough and sleek chromoly frame shows attention to detail with features like a split top tube, integrated U-lock holder, and attachment points for a variety of accessories. Fast-rolling aluminum wheels are securely bolted to the frame and wrapped in tires with flat protection and reflective sidewalls. The 8-speed SRAM drivetrain keeps you spinning all day, and small details like a riveted springer saddle, fenders, a chainguard, and coordinated graphics keep this bike looking great!

      Comments:

      I bought this a few days ago, the people working in the store were extremely helpful. I am not obsessed with biking gear, so Im not as picky as other people. I bought the bike knowing that I ride it infrequently. If you need a bike that you will ride everyday, is this a good one? Not sure. I do ride mine in the city all over the uneven streets of [...], it can take some serious potholes on. It was cheap and does the trick for me.

      Just a bad design with cheap components. Giant stuff is normally good so this was shockingly bad.

      Comments:

      I use the bike to commute to work, about 2 1/2 miles, and have only had the bike 3 months. I was crossing a street in a high gear and the crank collapsed, bending on itself to look like a taco, rendering the bike useless. Also, the rear break began to squeak in the short time I've owned the bike. I am very unhappy with the quality of the components.
