GIANT Toughroad
 
This is my hybrid GIANT Toughroad SLR. I use this for commuting and mountain biking on the weekends.

Your photo's aren't showing up. :(

Weird thing is you can right click on those photos and left clip to show up on a different tab to see the pictures.

Wonder why it's like that? :twitchy:

You have them posted on Google Drive. I have found that Google's picture services (either Photos or Drive) are not very friendly to hotlinks like we use on internet forums. I use Google extensively, and have all of my devices linked to an synchronized with Google Photos, but I have a Flickr account that I use only for posting pictures to forums like this. Flickr has a very easy way to copy "BBCode" (Bulletin Board Code) right from their website and you can paste that direct link straight into a post like this one.

As it comes, it includes some text, and a link to the picture, like this:

Or, you can manually trim out the URL tags, and have it just be a reference to the actual photo, like this:

Nice Roam! I love the Roam, own a 2015 version, pics posted a page or 2 back.

Welcome to the club!

We should start an "Official Giant Roam" thread... there seem to be a lot of owners/lovers here lately.

Cheers

Esthetic 04-20-17 09:49 PM

Right on! Thank you for the warm welcome.

That would be a great idea, and a good hub specific to owners to see what folks are up to with their Roams.

Mine's barebones atm, would love to see more with accesories and such. For instance ordered a headlamp to make me visible in night rides, not knowing much about the category... and would've been great to see how folk are outfitting their Roams for utility and accesibility.

Do you do a wheel change with tires pre_mounted or do you have to change tires each time you want to go from road to mountain?
Nice bike!

Totally agree! I really love this bike. It is so versatile. I use it for commuting everyday during the week and on the weekends, I either go mountain biking or long rides (80km) with friends. Depending on what the gang likes to do. My friends will use 2 different bikes but I just use this, and it is perfect. I just need to change tyres and remove racks for MTB. Twice I have put in a 30c narrowish tyres and with just with a saddle bag, it is so light and sleek to ride. I was able to keep up with my roadie friends on their road bikes.

I don't find much review about the Toughroad on the web. I actually got some videos I took on my GoPro and have been wanting to posts some on YT so it gets some more info out there. I just haven't found a time yet to upload them. Will try tonight.

Nice bike!

Hey thanks. I only got 1 set of wheels so I take the wheels off and change the tyres hen back on. I use the same tube size as my commuting tyres is a 47c wide tyres anyway. It takes me 10-15minutes for the whole process so it's not too bad. It took me a bit longer when I changed to a 30c narrow tyres on 2 instances riding with roadie friends because it is a bit trickier to mount on the wheels. But most of the times it is between the Maxxis MTB tyres 2.0 and the Schwalbe Marathon tyres 47c that I'm swapping so it is quite easy.

Cheers

Thanks Man. I should've read your post before I went searching online how to properly so it. LOL. Thanks heaps. :)

Just me , the woodpeckers, and a few fishermen enjoying the morning dew this morning. My first morning ride on my new Giant, so ecuse the flood of pics. Had a nice peaceful ride this morning :)

Was hoping to catch sunrise but it was on the wrong side of the canal. The entry to this strip is 3 blocks from my house, has some mixed elevation and mixed surface sections to explore. Its about 3.5 miles long going into this park with lots of paths to flex some extra mileage from the ride, and you can exit the park on the other end and jam uphill on the road back to the Raritan path entry.


Pics can it can give you an idea why i went with this style of bike since is what i'll be doing most of my riding. Nice mix of terrain and elevation on this strip, and riding along the water is always incredible. Should be real pretty here in a few weeks.

Got my new tires finally dirty on some dirt and river rocks. Only to hit a wet patch of gras on the way out of the park to clean them off. Got to love how resourceful nature can be :P

That's a really awesome bike. Congrats and may you have more years adventurous ROAMing. :)

Esthetic 04-24-17 06:27 PM

Thanks lestat.

Finally ordered some gear from Nashbar and Gearbest that should arrive this week. Only thing left to buy is a Ulock, but I have until June until I need one for a camping trip. Going with the fam to Point Sebago , Maine. Should have some nice riding and scenic pics ahead.

ColonelSanders 04-25-17 01:10 AM

Giant is just killing it right now in the hybrid choices it offers. :)
