Giant Talon – The Bike Expert
The Giant Talon is quite an unusual range in that there are two different types of bikes inside it. Most sets of bikes just change the components and therefore the performance slightly from bike to bike, however, with the Giant Talon, you can either get a normal mountain bike or a 29er mountain bike. Both have been designed more for riding trails, and they are relativley cheap, so great for entry level cyclists or anyone who’s on a bit of a budget this year.
With the Giant Talon 29er bikes, you get a MTB that has been specifically design to suit its larger 29-inch wheels. The geometry has been changed so that it still provides high enough stiffness and low enough weight to allow it to compete with other bikes on the market, and also the normal Talon bicycles that Giant are selling.
Most people don’t understand why many mountain bikers prefer to use 29er’s at certain events, but the Giant Talon 29er is the bicycle of choice for many because the bigger wheels allow you to get over obstacles and rough terrain with more ease. This means that you will have a more comfortable ride, but more importantly, the Giant Talon should help you keep your control when you are riding trails.
