Giant Escape 3 Ownership Review by Rajath Ramesh after 5 months of ownership.
The Great Escape!
A conclusive ownership review of the Giant Escape 3 2021. A few quick details to be kept in mind!
Number of years into cycling: 10+ years
Previously Owned Cycle: Hercules Roadeo Torrent
Currently Owned Cycle: Giant Escape 3 2021 bought November 2020.
Kilometres put on the cycle as of April 2021: 300KM
Where I bought it: R R International Bikes, Madiwala, Bangalore.
Price: 35,000 INR
My Experience So Far:
My purpose of purchasing a hybrid was to use it as a bridge to connect me to road cycling with road bikes! I use cycling as a way to get in my daily cardio away from my weight sessions at the gym. My rides during the week are mostly fasted 20-30 km dashes.
I cycle mostly on the roads of Bangalore, which means my 700c tyres get an equal share of good asphalt and some gravel as well. The cycle performs extremely well in both such conditions but longer duration on the gravel and bumpy roads do cause discomfort to the rider.
The cycle is fast thanks to the thin tyres and light frame. The build quality is very solid and sturdy. The gear changes are smooth and seamless.
If you are looking at hybrids, look no further. The Giant Escape 3 is purchase-worthy!
The bike isn’t high maintenance, only routine air pressure checks!
With a few mods like a carrier or panniers, this can very well become a tour cycle.
You Should Opt for the Giant Escape 3 if:
- It fits within your budget.
- You commute around the city
- A cycle for exercise purpose
- You want above average speed
- You want to get into road cycling and long distance.

TL; DR: Much Faster than an MTB, A Little Slower than a Roadie!
When I do purchase a road bike, my first option would be to look at Giant Cycles.
