2017 Giant Cypress DX

Comfort, control and a relaxing ride. Cypress makes it easy to experience the joy of riding a bike. Smooth-rolling 700c wheels keep Cypress moving along, even on rough roads. The suspension seatpost soaks up bumps, and the lightweight aluminum frame provides a comfortable, upright ride. Just keep pedaling and enjoy the ride.

      Haven't had a new bike in over 15 years...they have changed a lot. I use for recreational riding as I bought this as a gift to myself as my older bikes never felt like they fit me. I am 6'3'', and got the XL size. It's nice to have a bike that is made for my taller frame. Gear shifting is great, super easy to use, and the bike is "light" compared to the bikes that I used to ride. Riding up smaller incline grades is no longer a huge chore, and is good as it's less stress on the knees. I love the bike and plan to use to get some much needed exercise.

      This Is One Smooth Ride

      Comments:

      I bought this bike in December and could not wait to try it out on the toll path . I was amazed how sweet the shifting was on the bike, the guys at Century Cycle in Medina, Ohio had it setup perfect. This bike is such a pleasure to ride .

          I started riding last year for the exercise. I wasnt happy with the bike I bought so I looked for reasons not to ride. This year I bought a Giant Cypress DX. Now I look for reasons to ride. I am very happy with my Giant.

          The shifting on this bike is perfect. Shifts easily even uphill. The adjustment of the handlebars makes it the most comfortable bike I've been on. I am older and I was losing feeling in my hands when riding my mountain bike, the higher handlebars have helped a lot. The wider tire works good on trail riding a well as gravel roads and pavement. This bike is rather heavy so it could be a bit of a challenge if putting it on a bike carrier.

          I hadn't ridden in over 25 years and I decided to get a bike. Just by luck I tried this one and bought it. I am excited about riding now and am actually thinking about getting a second bike (mountain bike). This has the adjustable handlebars and stem so I have been able to fine tune it to me. I did how ever change the twist shift to thumb shifters. This is a matter of preference I guess. This bike is fast and fun.

            Just bought my Giant Cypress DX yesterday. My first new bike since I bought my 1991 Schwinn Cross-Fit. Took it out today for its first ride. Simply put, this bike is a dream. Comfort is first and foremost with such a smooth ride. Bike shifts as smooth as butter. Hills are no challenge. This bike flat out cruises on a flat straightway. Seat is comfortable from the start of ride until the end. There is so much bike here for the price.

            Comments:

            This bicycle is a superb design. On a strait a way it is easy to achieve speeds of 45 to 50 MPH, I recommend you were a good helmet.) I have been an avid cyclist since 8 years old and I honestly believe this is the easiest to become familiar with. Has a great balance is super light but very sturdy. I recommend 60 pounds tire inflation it has great control and can stop on a dime. It is best for paved trails only in my opinion which there are plenty of in [...] and [...] staff are super knowledgeable and make sure you leave after service with everything adjusted to fit your best comfort for short or long rides. I would highly recommend it to anyone loves the freedom of bicycling. For the money you get more than you expect out of a bicycle at double the price.

            It is very hard to center the front wheel so I recomend a bike rack on the car that allows the wheel to stay on. Other than that it is very well built to precision.

            Fast and comfortable bike...great deals at Center Cycle. In fact, I bought my wife a Specialized Globe 700 too. Friendly and accommodating personnel and lots of choices.
