Giant Roam/Rove similar bike

Postby igstar » Thu Jan 10, 2013 1:38 pm

I'm looking to get a bike for my partner. She likes the Giant Roam and Rove XR type of geometry. It will be used on unsealed, gravelly country roads (in dry and wet weather) with occasional venture to sealed roads in the town. what other similar setups are there around from other brands? She'd prefer disk breaks and prefers the more upgright geometry unlike what MTBs have.

Certainly not my area, but the Scott Sportster has quite a few followers, as does The Merida Crossway. Specialized have an option too.

I'd suggest you do a search on.Bike Exchange for hybrids to get an idea of prices. I was a bit surprised at the number of options with discs.

I just bought a 2013 Giant Roam 1 and love it. Using it for the road and the odd dirt track. Really happy with the level of equipment for the price, even has hydraulic disc brakes which work great.

Regards
