Take on the singletrack and more on Giant's Talon 29er. It all starts with Giant's ALUXX aluminum frame that's tough, yet light and responsive. Then you get an SR Suntour fork with 100mm of suspension to smooth out the rough stuff. And, the build kit is full of Shimano components with 27 speeds for hill-climbing and go-fast action, while Tektro Auriga hydraulic disc brakes give you speed control with modulation. And, don't forget Giant's 29-inch wheels with Maxxis knobbies that float over the bumps.
