I own a Giant OCR 2. I believe I purchased it in 2001 but I'm not sure of the model year of the bike. I can tell you that it is red and black with a selle Italia gel seat. It may be an 00, 01 or 02. Can anyone set me straight on this? I've actually only had it out a few times (it's really brand new) and am now considering trading it in for a Jamis Coda Sport, which I just came across featured in Men's Health magazine. I'm more used to mountain and hybrid bikes, don't do long distance biking and thought that the flat handlebars would be more up my alley. Would appreciate more experienced bikers' advise on this before I go ahead and make the switch. Thanks. J. Wheelock
Mtn bike handlebars: 2 positions for hands- on bar, on extenders if you have them
Road handlebars: 3 positions for hands: 1. on bar, identical to mtn bike, 2. on hoods, about 1/2 inch lower, and 3. in drops, racing position which is primarily used for downhills.
