Strengths:    Price for ride
Disc breaks are solid
Fast travel

Weaknesses:    Hard seat
Gears sometimes don't catch right when climbing
On the heavier side

Bottom Line:   
Great beginner mountain bike for price.
Easily handles Alabama/Georgia single tracks with speed. Very tough bike. 2 years of riding with only 2 annual tune ups and still rolling strong.
Rode fine on all trails in moab and New Mexico except slickrock trails. Unenjoyable ride too much raddle. If you demand perfection out of your bike don't purchase though as something is usually a little bit off, but nothing you can't get past. That's life right?

Giant Revel 29er 0 or 1 or Giant Talon 29er 1?

Between the Giant Revel 29er 0 or 1 or Talon 29er 1, do you recommend as an entry level bike? I plan to ride bike paths, 2 tracks/singletracks, nothing really aggressive. I'm kind of leaning towards the Revels, I'd like to keep my budget under $800. Thank youRead More »

Used 2013 Talon 29er 1 or Revel 29er 0?

I haven't been on a bike in a while and haven't really done any trail riding but would like to get into it.
