Details

Giant's Via 3 has all the features you need for city riding or backroad exploring in a simple, low-maintenance package. The tough, sleek chromoly frame shows attention to detail with features like a split top tube, integrated U-lock holder, and attachment points for a variety of accessories. Fast-rolling aluminum wheels are securely bolted to the frame and wrapped in tires with flat protection and reflective sidewalls. The one-speed drivetrain requires minimal maintenance, and small details like a riveted springer saddle, fenders, chainguard, and coordinated graphics keep this bike looking great!

Comments:

I bought one for a winter bike. Chromoly frame, single speed, upright position all seemed good. I replaced the pedals right away, for better grip and stability. I then replaced the bar grips as the stock ones were pretty poor. I had several spokes break before I went with a new rear wheel (the stock ones aren't very strong and are single-walled, I plan to replace the front one soon too). The saddle wasn't great, either, so that needed an upgrade. The gear ratio is great for light tires in summer, but I had the cog changed to a 20t for more low end in winter. Now, I am happy with the bike, but considering the money and effort of all the upgrades, I likely would have been better served with a bike that came better spec'd in the fist place. It is a nice ride, and for the money a fair bike for casual use. That said, for the price of a few more bus passes or tanks of gas a much better bike can be had. I'd recommend it to a friend only if the were using it lightly, and not commuting or using it as regular transportation.

Comments:

Aside from a $3 freewheel that needs to be replaced with a [$] freewheel, this bike rules. It feels faster than it should, more comfortable than I need and just super understated and sexy. Put a Brooks saddle and some good pedals on it and you've got a lifer for under [$] Sweet.

I love this bike! It's a perfect cross between cruiser and roadbike. It's really comfortable and rides really well. It's just perfect. Couldn't ask for a better bike for the price.
