Giant Cypress Dx 2020 Review
The giant cypress DX makes riding much easier and fun with its comfortable upright positioning, Seatpost, and suspension fork that smooth out obstacles and bumps on the road. This hybrid bike is suitable for both young and aged, and its outstanding features allows you to enjoy ride irrespective of terrains. These features include ALUXX grade aluminum frame, tektro mechanical disc brakes, the 700c wheels, among other features that contribute to the performance of this bike.
ALUXX Grade Aluminum Frame
The frame offers an upright positioning, which, in turn, allows a rider to have a comfortable and more relaxed ride. The frame is very strong and durable, enabling you to ride on tough terrains without worrying about the condition of the bike. In addition, riders can comfortably ride for long hours without feeling back and neck pains afterward. The frames are also built for muddy roads, unstable paths, and smooth pavements too.
This feature also plays an important role. The suspension Seatpost, alongside the fork, does an excellent job of absorbing bumps and vibrations on the road. With this, the riders do not feel the effects of bumpy roads, and this makes the ride more fun with less stress.
