I'm looking to replace a very old MTB with an up-to-date bike, but mainly for use on paths & trails with very little true "off-road" rough riding, IOW what they seem to call a "comfort bike" these days. After checking out the Trek Navigator line a bit, I ran across the latest Giant Sedona LX yesterday. It seems a lot like what I'm looking for -- a comfort bike that leans more in the MTB direction. I can get the '04 model for about $470, and that includes disc brakes, which are pretty rare on a comfort bike I think. The shifters are the rapid-fire type, which sure beats my old friction shifters.
Any comments on this bike in particular or Giant in general?
