My New Ride Giant Anyroad 2
 
1 Attachment(s)
Picked this up a week ago. I absolutely love it. Most comfortable bike I have been on. Just wanted to share with you. I added the orange bar tape and orange Candy 2's. Due to the shape of the frame there is only one set of bottle bosses. I custom made the bracket in the rear to hold a second bottle. Works really well.

Sweet! I like frame design on Anyroads and Specialized Globes. Awesome looking bikes!

Here is a very similar looking Globe.

I have to admit that's pretty good looking, though I don't generally care for the frame shape and the super tall head tube. No, yours is handsome!

Is that a wheel lock on the DT, and if so, what brand?

It's just a Velcro strap I use to keep the wheel stable when I have it on my bike rack to transport it. You can get a couple in a package at Walmart.

Ah. I thought-- was hoping-- it was a modern iteration of the Flickstand:

Reminds me of my old Globe (before it was stolen)

Great, high-utility and fun bike.

On my Anyroad 2 I have a rack installed where your second bottle sits. I also installed Ergon PC2 pedals in place of the stock platforms the LBS provided.

They are hard to see but I am running Crank Brothers Candy 2 pedals in the orange color.

Hi Ray. Sorry to dig this post back up. I'm thinking of ordering an Anyroad, but the Giant website has limited info on specs/sizing.

Can you tell me what size stem comes on the bike?
Also, what do you think the max width tire the Anyroad can take?

I was going to send you a PM, but my post count isn't high enough yet.

Thanks!

Looks GREAT!
