2017 Giant Expressway 2

Improved fitness and fun commuting have never been this convenient. Just unfold Expressway and start pedaling. Whether you’re carrying it on the train or pedaling through city streets, Expressway has everything you need to make your commute faster and more fun. The lightweight, durable aluminum frame is outfitted with quality brakes and easy-to-use gear shifters. Its slick folding design lets you pack it up easily for storage or transport. And the 20-inch wheels are small enough to stay out of the way but large enough to roll smoothly, even through rough city streets.

        I love this bike. I've added it to my collection of folding bikes. I also have Dahon Mariner, a Strida and a Kinovations (shaft drive). This is by far the most comfortable. It rides like a larger bike but with the convenient feature of folding and placing in the truck. Always have a bike... carry it like I do. Oh... can't say enough about the great service at Montgomery Cyclery... these guys are great!

          An almost perfect folder! My only wish is that it came in bigger size wheels such as a 24" or 26".

              This is a great bike and very fun to ride, I commute to campus and use it all over school. The bike folds into a relatively small package and fits behind the back seat of our van. It rides very well and shifts smooth. No problems with loose parts or creaking after daily use. It folds fast and can be pushed when it is in its folded position so you don't have to lift and tote it around. It is mid weight at about 24-25lbs and rides like a regular bike but don't expect a rocket ship. I have a 32" inseam and have maxed out the seat post, thankfully the bike has all standardized parts so finding a longer post won't be a problem. The only thing I changed on this bike was the saddle.

                If you want to see the potential of a folding bike, this a good well built, well priced starting point. It can't replace a full sized cycle, but it will easily travel with you by car, train or plane. With a small amount of disassembly it will pack into a large suitcase. The handle bars are a bit close to the seat, but this can easily be altered with an off the shelf stem.

                  This is my second bike that needs to be a folder, but I wanted to be secure on road, and also fit in the back of our (tiny) suzuki swift car. This replaces the micro-luxe 3 speed, admirably well. The 8 speeds are all useful. .. the handlebars have a little locator to keep them in place . The joins in the frame are really well done. The folding pedals work soo much better than the micro luxe ones too.
