Product Details

2014 Giant Expressway 2

Commuting has never been easier with Giant's quick-folding Expressway 2! It folds up in seconds so you can put your bike in planes, trains, buses, and automobiles. The bike easily fits under a desk, in a closet, or in an elevator, so you're sure to take it with you wherever you go. City cycling can be hectic, so Shimano provides a durable 7-speed drivetrain with twist shifters that easily handles stop-and-go riding, while the powerful linear-pull brakes offer total confidence and control even in chaotic urban traffic.

              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.
