2012 Giant Expressway 2

Giant's Expressway 2 upgrades your commute to the fast lane. Quickly transforming from a bike into an easily portable package in just 15 seconds, the Expressway is always ready to get you from point A to B in style. Plus it easily fits under a desk, in a closet, in car trunks, etc., so you're sure to bring it along. The efficient and sweet-riding aluminum frame has quick-release clamps that, with the ones in the stem and handlebars, let you fold the Expressway into a compact package for transport in the included carrying bag. To ride the bike, simply reverse the process, hop on, and go! City cycling can be hectic, but Shimano provides its durable 7-speed drivetrain with twist shifters that easily handles stop-and-go riding, while the powerful linear-pull brakes offer total confidence and control even in chaotic urban traffic.

            This is a great bike and very fun to ride, I commute to campus and use it all over school. The bike folds into a relatively small package and fits behind the back seat of our van. It rides very well and shifts smooth. No problems with loose parts or creaking after daily use. It folds fast and can be pushed when it is in its folded position so you don't have to lift and tote it around. It is mid weight at about 24-25lbs and rides like a regular bike but don't expect a rocket ship. I have a 32" inseam and have maxed out the seat post, thankfully the bike has all standardized parts so finding a longer post won't be a problem. The only thing I changed on this bike was the saddle.

              If you want to see the potential of a folding bike, this a good well built, well priced starting point. It can't replace a full sized cycle, but it will easily travel with you by car, train or plane. With a small amount of disassembly it will pack into a large suitcase. The handle bars are a bit close to the seat, but this can easily be altered with an off the shelf stem.

                This is my second bike that needs to be a folder, but I wanted to be secure on road, and also fit in the back of our (tiny) suzuki swift car. This replaces the micro-luxe 3 speed, admirably well. The 8 speeds are all useful. .. the handlebars have a little locator to keep them in place . The joins in the frame are really well done. The folding pedals work soo much better than the micro luxe ones too.
