Reasonably good bike (2018 model)

Pros:
Cons:
Best Uses:
It's not a bad bike for sure, for the casual neighborhood rider which I am. I like a seat, comfortable for under 1 hour rides in casual riding. Bike is light even comparing to the kids bikes. The problems, as I see it, in the lower gears, handlebar and pedals. It's quite a workout to go up hill, I had easier time to do it with department store bike which had 21 speeds and steel frame. Brakes are good, had no problems to control my bike. Shifting is quite rough, with the sound similar to dropping set of pens on the floor. When going down the hill it's easy to lose contact with pedals so you end up trying to catch them again somehow. Handlebars shape is such that it's not comfortable to hold on them, it's somewhat flat on the edges making it feel like you holding the piece of 2x4 board. I guess that's what you get when you go for a cheapest "good" bike.

We are on our way to Cypress #2!

Pros:
Shifts Clean And Smooth, Comfortable Sadle, Great Value, Looks great
Cons:
I have yet to find a con
Best Uses:
Road Hard Trail, Comuting
I bought this bike as a commuter to work about 6 miles away, comparing it to my girl friend's old bike, she is going to invest. I feel for the money, the competition falls just short. The sadle is more comfortable. It shifts clean and crisp. It looks great going down the road.

I ride this bike on paved trails and on the city street. This bike is comfortable to ride and it makes riding that much more enjoyable. The gears are easy to shift when on hills. I love my Giant Cypress.

Wonderful for what it's made for...

Pros:
Durable, Handles Well Off-road
Cons:
Heavier than some
Best Uses:
Pavement, Off-Road
Put over 2000 miles on this bike in the last year. Beat the living hell out of the bike, going on off road trails that would normally be only accessible by mountain bike. Replaced seat for smaller one within the first week of owning.Good bike for beginners. De-railer has had a couple of problems, and I have had to re-tune it twice.

If you want a smooth ride, this is the bike for you. The price cannot be beat by any quality brand bike. The styling of the frame makes for a very streamlined looking bike.

Great bang for the bucks

Pros:
Great Components, Durable, Lightweight
Cons:
Best Uses:
Pavement
I have had my Cypress for almost six months and it is one of the best bikes I have ridden for the price. I bike 15+ miles a day I can get to speeds close to that of a road bike and keep it there. It's not as lightweight as I would like it to be, but it's also not as heavy as some of its competitors. It handles great and the shifting is smooth and quick. I dropped the riser all the way down and reversed the handlebars and it gives me a very low profile but not so low that it is hard on the back.

very very good especially for the price

Pros:
Great Components, Lightweight, Durable
Cons:
Best Uses:
Pavement, Commuting
For me it has been durable (4 yrs,bought from bicycle world),it rolls like a dream and smooth. it seems to me to maybe have superior wheel bearings than some of the other bike manufacturers of this type of bike. Very comfortable but fast also and it handles well. Riding thru Grass and sand for short stretches does not cause a problem with this size tire. Only negative i didnt like the cushy seat and replaced with harder narrower-personal pref.

Heavy, Heavy, Heavy but comfy!

Pros:
Handles Well Off-road, Durable
Cons:
Heavy
Best Uses:
Commuting, Pavement
I test drove several bikes and when I got onboard this bike, I was hooked! I couldn't believe the comfort! However, when climbing hills, especially into the wind, this bike is extremely heavy! It is great for a nice, comfy ride on a flat or low-incline straight-away. It is excellent on paved trails! The glide is so smooth. For the low-budget, entry-level, casual cyclist, this is a great bicycle.

Perfection has another name, CYPRESS!

Pros:
Durable, EASY ON THE NECK MUSCLES, Handles Well Off-road, EASY ON THE BACK, Very Comfortable
Cons:
Heavy, Poor break component
Best Uses:
Pavement, Commuting
I am addicted to this bike.I love the comfort of it, and the way it glides accross the pavement. Its perfect for the beach bike path or getting around in the city.It could stand some improvement on the break release.It is very difficult to take the tires off, because its difficult to unhitch the break gadget.
