advice asap pls: Giant Escape 3 or Schwinn Voyageur 21?
I am 50, and just had hip surgery. I used to ride, but am a big fragile and anxious about it right now. I'm looking to buy a bike mostly for bike paths/road use. I looked at the Giant Escape 3 and the Schwinn Voyageur 21, which are both around $400. I didn't want to spend much more. Any thoughts on which is better? Any other recommendations? Thx.
Get the Giant Escape 3. With Giant you get more for your buck!
My wife and I just purchased a couple of Escapes and love them. I think for the buck Giants can't be beat for the price point. We were looking at a Canondale model that was close to the Escape model we ended up purchasing. The specs on both bikes were very similar however the price was $225 less. For the two of us that was was savings of about $500 when you figure in taxes and the like. That said buying a bike is only part of the deal, you are buying into a LBS as well. They are as important as the bike itself.
