I have a Giant Farrago, probably a '97. Best bike I've owned and perfect for the casual riding I do along the local bike paths. It is light-weight and well balanced. Our trails are shale, I think, and the tires held up very well without getting any flats for all the summer riding I've done.
My son has outgrown his bike. He has never been good for long distances, but he's been using my Farrago on the last few rides we went out and he loves it. I want it back and am looking to get a bike for him. I haven't found any in the stores that are very close to the Farrago, although the Diamondback Insight comes close and was recommended by the salesman at Performance Bikes.
Any recommendations? Since he's still growing I would prefer to get something used, but I don't know what to look for.
Thanks! Happy riding!
