Best Way Around Town!

Pros:
Packs Well, Durable, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons:
Best Uses:
Comfort
Purchased June 2015 Very comfortable ride. I use is for short errands, to the store and back.ride I purchased rear bike rack and bags, it make shopping easy. I live on the South shore of long island and ride the bike ride to the beach. It's a great way to keep in shape, and enjoy the fresh air. Don't let the bike shop talk you into all the gears. Keep it simple! The simple one speed is the way to go! I plan on buying another to leave at my place in Florida; to enjoy the riding all year long.

'13 Simple Single is awesome

Pros:
Durable, Lightweight, Versatile
Cons:
Best Uses:
Commuting/City, Road Biking
Just got my '13 Simple Single black/black cruiser and i am totally impressed. It is ridiculously lightweight for such a thick, solidly constructed bicycle. the lines and sleek graphics remind me of the batmobile. This is my first Giant bicycle, though i have wanted one for years. The way the bike is constructed it will probably be my last. What I paid for the bicycle seemed crazy even to me, but after riding it for the first time it was easily worth the investment.

Very smooth and easy to ride. Very nice!

Pros:
Durable, Versatile, Lightweight
Cons:
Best Uses:
If you plan on just casually riding around then this bike is the bike for you. Very smooth and just a pleasure to ride. The gears make a world of difference. The 26 inch wheels coupled with fat tires make for a smooth ride. I use it to ride around the neighborhood with my kids and it's perfect. This cruiser bike is just that.....if you plan on just " cruising" around,invest in this bike. I don't regret it at all. Very pleased.

Less than satisfying

Pros:
Comfortable seating, Stylish
Cons:
Flimsy Components, Rough Ride, Weak coaster brake
Best Uses:
Leisurely Rides
I've had this bicycle for almost 6 months now and can safely say that I'm sorry that I didn't purchase a similar (but better) Electra Coaster model. This bike had to be adjusted three times to eliminate the slippage of it's chain, the ride is still inferior to my friends $120 [...]-bought Schwinn. Giant might make some good bikes at higher price points but not in the Simple Single.

Fun Beach Cruiser

Pros:
Stable Balance, Lightweight, Smooth Ride
Cons:
Best Uses:
Leisurely Rides, Uneven Surfaces
Rented these bikes last summer on Dauphin Island. This is a great flat surface cruiser. We had lots of nice casual rides on them. The aluminum frame coaster version is surprisingly light and may hold up better in the salt air. We are purchasing for our get away house down there so we will see.

I love this bike

Pros:
Smooth Ride, Stable Balance, Comfortable seat, Easy to add baskets, Stylish
Cons:
Heavy
Best Uses:
Leisurely Rides, Street Riding, Uneven Surfaces
I ride this bike to many evening events. It's easy to ride - even in heels and a cocktail dress. I have 2 baskets on the back and 1 on the front which makes grocery shopping easy. Even loaded down with bags of groceries, the bike is easy to handle and ride. The handle bars are positioned perfectly for riding in a comfortable upright position and the seat is very comfortable. This bike was the perfect choice for leisurely-paced rides on flat streets and sidewalks.
