    Giant's Iguana Disc?

    Hello-
    Recently, went to get a new bike. Ive been looking at Giant's Iguana with Disc Brakes. Man, its nice, and on sale for $570.

    Anyway, what are the main pros and cons of this? Also, what are it's direct competitors?

    Thanks everybody!

    P.S. If any of you are from Pittsburgh, let me know

    hey man i recently bought a Giant iguana with out dics but upgraded the crap out of it. I think i put more money in it than it was to buy it. But overall its a great bike.the only difference between the disc and non disc is that the disc has downgraded components on it. But get it it is a great bike
