Giant Snap 21 (2016) Frame, Fit and Comfort

Made using their in-house ALUXX technology, the Giant Snap 21 is lightweight and sturdy. The frame is ergonomically designed, enabling a semi-aggressive, performance enhancing riding position. The only drawback is that it is available only in a single size - Medium. However, it will most likely be a good fit for people comfortable on small as well as medium sized bicycles.

It comes equipped with a CH410 fork, and can be used comfortably on smooth surfaces and bumpy roads alike. However, riding on trails (of any kind) may not be suited with this cycle.

Giant Snap 21 (2016) Design

Simplicity - Giant has designed the snap 21 keeping this in mind. Though vibrantly coloured, this bicycle isnŠ—Èt flashy in design. However, it looks great and will most definitely stand out during a ride. The Snap 21 is available in one colour - Orange/Black.

Giant Snap 21 (2016) Gearing

The Giant Snap 21 comes fitted with a Shimano Tourney group set. The shifting is controlled by Shimano ST-EF51 7x3 shifters. At this price point, there isnŠ—Èt room for complaints when it comes to the gearing on this bicycle. While on the test ride, the shifting was smooth and efficient.ξ

The Shimano thumb shifters used are comfortable, and the shifting happened with ease. However, I felt the need to apply slight extra force to push the shifter trigger.ξ

Giant Snap 21 (2016) Brakes and Steering

The Giant Snap 21 comes equipped with Tetkro TK832 V-brakes. When tested, the braking proved to be responsive and effective on dry and wet surfaces alike. The Tektro Brake levers were positioned well, and within comfortable reach.

The stock handlebar on the Giant snap 21 is broad, which sees to an Š—…open-chestedŠ—È riding position. The grips on the handlebars were comfortable and well-suited for rides up to 2 hours. Longer distances may call for a change in the grips.

The Giant Snap 21 comes fitted with Kenda K193 26Š— x 1.5Š—ÈŠ—È tires. The threading on these tires provide excellent grip, and work well in dry and wet conditions. The wheels were fast rolling and enhanced the overall quality of the ride. The 26Š— wheels add to the stability and control of the bicycle. The Giant Connect saddle that comes with this cycle is comfortable for short rides. However, on longer rides, it may cause soreness and be uncomfortable.
