Size is key: do not use your regular glove (size), go larger. My experience is that it is especially important that the liner is not too tight in the glove, allow the liner a little bit of air.

None of those liners really keep you warmer. At best they just allow you to swap them out every 30-60min to remove some moisture. I've suggest getting some bigger shell gloves - like +2 sizes...

Giant Escape vs. Fastroad

I badly need a new bike. I would like a "fast hybrid", that is a hybrid bike for the flat handlebars but as close as a road bike as far as weight and speed are concerned.

As much as I would like...

Have hydraulic discs now. Won't go back. Easy to modulate, great stopping power, don't have to worry about larger tire sizes, minimal maintenance, look cool, what's not to like.

After a lot of research, I bought the Cygolite set - which is the HotRod rear light, and the Dash Pro 600 lumen headlight. 80 bucks on Amazon, simple, reliable, good visibility, and excellent if...

I've been using Cygolites for a while now and love them. Great value.

Recently picked up a Metro 700/Hotshot 100 Combo for $60, but I was planning to buy a smaller Dash combo for similar money.

In 2015 I replace a Madone 4.6 (Rival) with a Emonda SLR (eTap) at a graduation gift to myself when my youngest was off the family payroll. It was a "stupid" expensive purchase and a total splurge....

I bought a Giant FCR3 back around 2009 which was very similar to the Escape models of today. It was a very fast bike I rode some of my fastest times on a bicycle on that bike. Today I am riding a...

Seems like the Giant Escape isn't that popular, well at least around BF anyway. I picked up a 2019 Escape disc 1 last year and swapped in a new drivetrain and wheels. It's a very comfortable and...

Not much to most here but huge for me.

As a child I rode a bike as a means of transportation, fun and an escape from a lousy family life. I rode until I was in my 30's and blew out a disc on my right side that caused enough nerve damage...

When I returned to cycling after a 30 year "layoff", I started with a 2013 Giant Escape 2. I absolutely love(d) it. It rode and shifted nicely.

My only issue after...
