2013 Roam 2 Giant First Look

Roam’s all-new design features a strong and reliable ALUXX aluminum frame built for fast-rolling 700c wheels. With a suspension fork and a mountain-bike-style handlebar, plus plenty of frame clearance for off-road tires, it encourages you to take the path less travelled. A suspension fork can be flipped open for tough trails or locked out for pavement, so you’ll learn to love detours.

WeightHow much does this bike weigh? It’s a common question, and rightly so. But the truth is, there are no industry standards for claiming bike weights—and this leads to a lot of misinformation. Variances exist based on size, frame material, finish and hardware. And as bikes get lighter, these differences become more critical. At Giant, we believe the only way to truly know the weight of any particular bike is to find out for yourself at your local retailer.
