Get out there! Giant's Talon 27.5 1 offers the perfect blend of speed and control for getting out on the trails. It all starts with Giant's ALUXX aluminum frame that's tough, yet nimble and responsive, just what you need for singletrack excursions. Then you get a RockShox 30 Gold fork with 100mm of plush suspension and precise steering to guide you through the rough stuff. It's packed full of Shimano components with 20 speeds for hill-climbing, and Shimano disc brakes for great speed control with modulation. And, 27.5-inch Maxxis knobbies grip with authority and roll over practically anything in your way.
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.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
