    Giant Revolt Bike Line--Any Owners?

    My LBS has me looking at the Giant Revolt 1 and Revolt 2 bikes he has. Impressive. I also like the new models of the Seek. Even the model with the 8-speed internal hub turns my crank.

    Any owners out there who can offer feedback on their Revolt?

    Thanks,
    Fred

    My LBS is high on the Anyroad. They think the Revolt is a bit too aggressive.

    1989 Raleigh Technium, 1989 Schwinn Traveler, 1986 Specialized Rockhopper
    1984 Specialized Stumpjumper, 1986 Specialized Stumpjumper and just way too many projects to list.

    I bought a Revolt 1 and I'm quite happy with it. I also looked at the Anyroad and the Specialized AWOL, but preferred the Revolt. I wanted something comfortable to ride longer distances and still rack capable. Giant advertises the Anyroad as rack capable, but it doesn't have braze-on's on the seat stays limiting the type of rack without an adapter or some other one off solution. The AWOL's a really nice bike, but between the two I found the Revolt more comfortable.

    Revolt seems to fill a gap between Anyroad and TCX which is harder to define. Seems like a good bike, a few aesthetic and functional things kept me from looking at it. I actually find the TCX to be quite comfortable and can still take a rack and fenders...
