WebPage

Revive is the ultimate comfort bike with a neutral riding position and adjustability for riders from 5'-6'6".
Well that's what Giants archive says anyway.
I have to admit, its a cushy ride, I particularly fun to dive into corners. This bike in non-motorized form wouldn't make a very good commuter, more of a gated community cruiser

Additional FeaturesRevised once again. I came across a like new Norvara Safari pannier, but only one, so I created a pannier mount for the front of the bike. The pannier adds additional removable cargo space and when full creates a nice curved wind breaker, not quite a fairing. Batteries have been removed from their original plastic housing and are now installed in two removable side bags, 4 in each bag
