Hi, I have been riding the Giant Seek 1 (2009) since April. It now has 2,000 miles and is perfect: it works as well as the day I got it. Since buying new it has needed rear brake pads, the chain tightened and the shimano recommended planned maintenance on the Alfine 8-Speed internal hub.

This bike has: hydraulic disk brakes and 8 speed internal gears.

I use the bike as a more than daily commuter (8 miles each way for coffee over streetcar tracks, rough roads and loads of car traffic) - I also take the bike for occasional 50 miles rides on the weekend.

Fenders, a headlight and tail light, a rack and pannier were added. I derive tremendous enjoyment from riding this bike and would recommend it to anyone looking for a commuter. I paid $900 CDN.
