Giant Roam 2 vs Giant Escape RX Disc vs Roam 1

Postby Maverick777 » Sun Feb 10, 2013 15:42 pm

What are people's thoughts on the Giant Roam 2 vs Giant Escape RX Disc vs Roam 1. Would the SR Suntour NEX 4610 D lock out forks make much difference whilst road riding and the weight of the bike? How does the lock-out work? :idea: Thanks

A bit off topic... I've got the Roam XR2 from a couple of years ago and is a fantastic bike but was surprised recently to see the bike now goes for £850 from what I could see it was only really modern parts compared my 2010 model.

Back on topic... I guess you'll use the bike for much of the riding I use mine for Commuting and the odd trail ride, unless you're going over very bad ground you don't need to worry too much about forks. The lockout is a switch that basically stops the forks from going up or down, I always have mine locked out for my ride but that because I'm a roadie at heart :)
