Momentum Street models are available in 5 colors, as a double-diamond or mid-step, and sell for just $425.
Giant, the world's largest bike manufacturer, is making low-cost bikes for the rest of us. They're 7-speed aluminum bikes that come standard with fenders, rear racks (with bag mounts), nominal chainguards, integrated cup holders, and even a frame-mounted u-lock carrier. At $425, this is a highly utilitarian bike and a really good deal.
Rack, fenders, cup holder for $425 - need more space so I can get one of these! @bikerackdc #bikedc pic.twitter.com/Z2NNzaC4Z6— Joe Flood (@joeflood) August 15, 2015
Outside Magazine has a positive review (as well as some discussion about Specialized's now-defunct Globe series).
