    Giant fastroad comax 1

    Good day everyone! I am new to cycling and i am planning to buy a giant fastroad comax 1 but i want to use it as my daily ride to work on road but hopefully i can use it also as a cross so im planning to to put thicker tires so that i can use it off road but not hardcore off road just out of country unpaved roads during weekends.Has anyone done that? Road bike thicker tires?
    Maybe someone will suggest me to just buy the giant anyroad which is a cyclocross but i am not a fan of drop bars and its easy for me to replace the tires if i get the giant fastroad comax

    I like it! I too, am not a fan of drop bars. The spec'ced tires are 25 C but it looks there's room for up to 35 C tires.

    If I was you, I'd ditch the flat bars for cruiser bars. They just look cool on a flat bar bike! And I want a comfortable riding position.



    Sweet looking all-round bike! Not your grandpappy's CX bike for sure.

    Anyone has the fastroad comax yet and can share some of your thoughts and experience with it?

    You might need some more patience, we haven't seen any comax bikes roll through yet in our region, and I know we are waiting on a couple. That said, it is based on the aluminum escape which is hugely popular for a reason. Should be a nice bike if the price is right for you.

    I'm looking at the Women's LIV version in CoMax1 for my wife, but my local dealer still trying to figure out when they can get one. Looks like a good value for the level of components.

    It looks like an Anyroad in CF. Which means it must be a nice bike.

    Well my dealer relayed that the Giant Rep said the Women's Liv Thrive CoMax 1 would not be shipping until the beginning of 2015. Bummer, I had cash in hand and my wife really loved the Liv. On to plan B, she needs a bike now.

    Well, today, October 6th, I stopped by the local pro shop, had them look it up again, and confirmed the Fastroad Comax 1 is not yet available in the USA. I'm in Illinois.

    Isn't it kind of strange that 3 newbies all posted to this thread? That and all 3 had 1 post each.

    No I don't think it's strange. Everybody on this board starts with one post, including you. Thousands of members on this site, there are bound to be newbies, on a redefined category of bike, that manufactures have just caught on to. Two posted in July one yesterday on a bike they all want to see but isn't available.

    I tend not to worry about post counts but the information that is being presented.
