Picked it up this morning, and took a quick trip down the riverbed, sandy, rocky, little jumps nothing too serious but I only had an hour and its close to home.
This thing rolls like a dream!
I bought the thing having never ridden a 29er, but at this point, Im stoked.
Actually I bought the bike sight unseen, except for the pics on Giants website, which really do no do this bike justice.
I have a disorder when it comes to major purchases.
I research, then I compare, then I join one of these sites, then I ask what everybody ELSE thinks, then I research, and compare some more, buy some magazines, search the web for every minute detail ever written, uttered, dreamed, or farted.
Well, maybe not farted.
The frame is a matte white, which doesn't show up well in these pics, but trust me,IMHO this is one of the best finishes Ive seen on any bike.
I havent ridden in several years, (Last bike was a Pro Flex), Feels good to be in the wind again.
Im a noob at the pics resizing, and uploading so please be kind.
Yeah the white pedals and grips are a little much, but until they are non serviceable (fubar), they'll stay.
:D
