Giant Escape.......some questions

Going for a weeks cycling at Pollensa, Majorca (with a mate).
I was going to hire a Giant road bike but notice they also do the Escape so I may go for that.
I suffer with neck pains after 35ish miles and I imagine the Escape will be more relaxed/upright.
Any thoughts ??

Why not go to Giant in Liverpool and sit on one?

I can do that but its a 40 mile round trip.
There is also a Giant shop not too far away.
But I think CC is great way of advice from actual owners
But we’re all different. What I find upright, you might not. You could compare the geometry on the Giant site too, look at the headtubw, stack height for starters

And 40 miles? A nice morning out on the bike...you are retired after all get out at 8 you’ll be home in time for lunch and your afternoon nap

Not sure the last crack is very helpful, but who am I.

Slightly condescending from you vickster. Not like you.
I didnt ask what I am capable of, I asked if anyone has experience of a Giant Escape.

I think stock with what you're accustomed to while on holiday as it'll be less too stress about.

I rode a giant escape 3 from the north of France to the south of Spain a few years back.
couldn't fault the bike at all. had no problems and it was a comfortable ride.
