As above my 2011 Giant hybrid, size small but I believe its fit is more like a medium in other bikes I've ridden I am 5ft 7 and the pictures show where my saddle is positioned I would expect it to fit from 5ft3 to 5ft10 ish.

A great 'go anywhere' bike I loved riding it on or off road on cycle paths and trails, but have purchased a road bike and a hardtail mountain bike in the couple of months and this machine is just not getting used.
It has 700c wheels and hydraulic brakes and front suspension, so can be taken off road quite happily. I've probably done 500- 600 miles on it. But I like the riding position although it is not the lightest of bikes.
I will be leaving the mudguards on and putting back the original matching saddle, but I am keeping the saddle bag and cycle computer.
The blurb:- :lol:

Top Features of the Giant Roam XR3 Disc - 2011
The Roam XR3 gives you the freedom to tackle any environment from the city streets to the dirt path. A tough hardtail mountain bike build, hydraulic disc brakes and Road inspired 700c wheels let you Roam with speed, control and comfort.

Versatile hybrid design
SR Suntour NEX suspension fork with lockout
Fast rolling 700c wheels
Powerful hydraulic disc brakes
Shimano Alivio 27 Speed Drivetrain
SR Suntour NEX Suspension Fork
The SR Suntour NEX is a reliable coil sprung fork with 63mm of travel, ideal for a smooth riding feel over uneven roads and bridle ways. A hydraulic lockout feature allows you to lock the travel for efficient pedalling on smooth terrain and uphill stretches.

Giant Aluxx Aluminium Tubing
Giant's in-house manufacturing capabilities mean each step of the production process is closely monitored, ensuring that every alloy bike built features the tightest tolerances and highest quality. With Giant’s ALUXX Aluminum Technology, you know you're riding the finest aluminium frames available.

I would suggest this either as a weekend trail bike or a decent commuter. I would like £275 for it.
