Not pretty but still rolling after 20+ years. Currently being rebuilt as an expedition tour bike.


I also have a Giant Excursion that is being used as a tour bike for on road use.

Aaron - How many bikes do YOU have ?



Have never owned a real Giant bicycle but have to say, they don;t do a bad job when it comes to building them and their owners seem pretty happy.

Dunno...at least 18 that are more or less in riding condition...

The steel Giants from the 80's and 90's were always an excellent value for the dollar, quite often overlooked by people buying big name brand bikes. They always reminded me of the Honda cars of the same era, not a whole lot of flash, but very well built and engineered for the money spent and seem to last and last.

I built this for a produce delivery guy. It's giant now, but I think it started as a Norco.
