    Giant Yukon

    I am a roadie, but looking to purchase my first mt. bike. Will not be doing "serious" off road biking, but looking for something stable and enjoyable to ride as a second bike. My LBS has Bianchi & Giant.
    Any comment on the "Yukon"?

    Giant bikes seem like good value, but their customer service is non existent.
    Not sure about Bianchi.
    Giant doesn’t honour warranties.

    I like Giant bikes & have had good customer service with them. I have found that service after the sale, depends upon how good the shop is.

    My first real mountain bike was a Giant Yukon, 2005 model if I remember correctly. I loved that thing; good solid frame, very little chain slap and I felt really comfortable with the geometry of the bike. I thought it was a good bike for the price.
    Some people are just like Slinky's. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    How serious of a roadie are you?

    My thoughts exactly. I am an EX mountain biker that now has road bikes. If you are not doing serious Offroad then this might be OK. The frame will be fine- but the Components are are a bit low for any rough stuff. It would be good for Trail work and will go up hills if you have the power- but look at the type of riding you may want to do.

    "Serious" off-roading would be very dull indeed, I think. I tend to do a lot of 'happy-go-lucky' or 'fun screwing around' or 'wow what a rush' off-roading. Seriously.
