The Giant Escape City is a cool looking bike. The fenders and bike rack compliment the bike very nicely.

My LBS just told me Giant won't ship it until next week (it's a 2014), so I have to wait longer. I hate waiting. I keep fantasizing about the day I get to ride it home.

I picked up my new Giant Escape City on Monday. It shifts like butter. Very pleasant ride. It took a few rides to get used to the flat bar hand position, but now I'm enjoying it. Very stable, good grip with the stock tires. I was worried about how skinny they are, but they deal with water and sand very well. The fenders work surprisingly well, too. I plowed through a bunch of deep puddles today and only my feet got splattered.

On the down side, the saddle is uncomfortable. I think I'll replace it with one like I have on my road bike. And both of the plastic bits that hold the rear fender struts on broke today for no good reason. I think my LBS may have cranked them down too tight, but the design seems flaky.

Other than that, I'm so in love with this bike. I bought some panniers for it tonight, and earlier this week I gave it a headlight and a u-lock. I feel like I could go anywhere on it and do anything.

You meet the most interesting characters on the bus.
Tranny is a Disparaging and Offensive term for a transgender person, You saw this person riding in your bus and for some reason you thought they were transgender which you were wrong and you immediately refered to them with that derogatory term?

You were Wrong and You have been Disrespectful of people around You.

Maybe you should consider how to be more respectful, more non judgemental and not be so very assuming next time and from now on please. You enjoy your life better and You would be happier that way.
