I just picked up a new Giant Roam 0 Hybrid a few days ago. I fine tuned it to my liking, got the fit correct for me, changed out the saddle installed my seat bag tools and spare tube, slapped on a set of more road friendly 700x35 Vittoria Hyper foldable tires and removed the 700x40 semi nobby tires that came on it. I road it the first time out about 30 miles and another 35 or so miles with the wife today. The bike rode well it responded good to the road and bike trail. The hydrolic lock out on the fork is very nice and easy to use. The Scram X5 componets are nice and perform very well after tuneing them correctly. The Avid hydrolic disk brakes perform very well and have a nice over all feel to them very smooth great modulation. It's a sweet little Hybrid ride I like the 700C wheelset & disk brakes and I like the mountain bike gearing, climbs well with the 9 spd 11-34 rear cassette & 26,36,48 chain rings up front. I paid $760.00 for mine I think retail is $820.00. I did look at the Trek models as well both the Giant & the Trek Hybrids are nice if you like the mountain bike style Hybids. I decided on the Giant after looking at at both model lines I think it had a little more bang over all for the buck comparing apples to apples as much as possible considering local pricing on both bikes between two diffrent bike shops.
Ride Safe All,
