2014 Giant Talon 27.5 1

Giant's Talon 27.5 1 gives you the acceleration and lightweight feel of a 26-inch wheel, with the traction and efficiency of a 29er. It all starts with Giant's ALUXX aluminum frame that's tough, yet light and responsive, just what you need for singletrack excursions. Then you get a RockShox fork with 100mm of plush suspension and precise steering to guide you through the rough stuff. It's packed full of Shimano components with 30 speeds for hill-climbing, and Shimano disc brakes for great speed control with modulation. And, 27.5-inch Schwalbe knobbies grip with authority and roll over anything in your way.

First Real Mountain Bike

Pros

  • Front Fork With Lockout
  • Reliable Shifting

Cons

      Comments:

      I wanted two things in my bike: reliable shifting and on-the-fly front fork lockout adjustment. This bike has both (and disc brakes). It rides great. I replaced the saddle and pedals but that is to be expected. I am a weekend rider and usually ride at Daley Ranch. It is good value for money.

        Have been happy with this bike so far except for noisy / hard shifts. Will take it back in for 90 day tune up to iron out small issues. Was happy with the service @ my LBS.
