      I started riding last year for the exercise. I wasnt happy with the bike I bought so I looked for reasons not to ride. This year I bought a Giant Cypress DX. Now I look for reasons to ride. I am very happy with my Giant.

      The shifting on this bike is perfect. Shifts easily even uphill. The adjustment of the handlebars makes it the most comfortable bike I've been on. I am older and I was losing feeling in my hands when riding my mountain bike, the higher handlebars have helped a lot. The wider tire works good on trail riding a well as gravel roads and pavement. This bike is rather heavy so it could be a bit of a challenge if putting it on a bike carrier.

      I hadn't ridden in over 25 years and I decided to get a bike. Just by luck I tried this one and bought it. I am excited about riding now and am actually thinking about getting a second bike (mountain bike). This has the adjustable handlebars and stem so I have been able to fine tune it to me. I did how ever change the twist shift to thumb shifters. This is a matter of preference I guess. This bike is fast and fun.

        Just bought my Giant Cypress DX yesterday. My first new bike since I bought my 1991 Schwinn Cross-Fit. Took it out today for its first ride. Simply put, this bike is a dream. Comfort is first and foremost with such a smooth ride. Bike shifts as smooth as butter. Hills are no challenge. This bike flat out cruises on a flat straightway. Seat is comfortable from the start of ride until the end. There is so much bike here for the price.

        This bicycle is a superb design. On a strait a way it is easy to achieve speeds of 45 to 50 MPH, I recommend you were a good helmet.) I have been an avid cyclist since 8 years old and I honestly believe this is the easiest to become familiar with. Has a great balance is super light but very sturdy. I recommend 60 pounds tire inflation it has great control and can stop on a dime. It is best for paved trails only in my opinion which there are plenty of in [...] and [...] staff are super knowledgeable and make sure you leave after service with everything adjusted to fit your best comfort for short or long rides. I would highly recommend it to anyone loves the freedom of bicycling. For the money you get more than you expect out of a bicycle at double the price.

              It is very hard to center the front wheel so I recomend a bike rack on the car that allows the wheel to stay on. Other than that it is very well built to precision.

                  Bought an off rental model at the tent sale last month. I love this bike. I've always liked cycling but could never afford a comfortable enjoyable bike. My short yet hilly ride is the most enjoyable way to get to work I've ever experienced. I am really bummed that the weather hasn't been more cooperative so I could enjoy it more. Every morning I agonize over the weather to see if I'm gonna ride or drive.

                    The Giant Cypress DX is a fabulous bike. Everyone who rides it falls in love with it. My husband and I ride 15-20 miles several times a week on a paved railroad bed. On alternating days,we lower the tire pressure and ride a graveled, rolling 4 mile path along a mountain lake. The bike functions well doing either! It's easy to transport, has needed only minor adjustments (all new bikes do), and is the most comfortable bike I've ridden. Truly a great bike for casual, recreational riding and for easy off-road trail riding. I love the 700cx38c tires that came with the bike.
