    It's already got everything going for it. Wide 26" tires, heavy duty wheels, strong frame and fork..... a perfect starter bike for you! Heck, it's even got a lot of gears.............

    Absolutely! The more pressure you put on them , the harder they dig in! This would be true of all discs, but Semi metallic will always bite harder. The nature of the beast.

    Not very likely that you could have done better for your dollar, new. Giant is usually a pretty good deal!

    Specialized makes really nice bikes, and they fit ME the best. Most Sirrus bikes don't have room for much wider tires than come on them. Maybe a size or two up. I can't speak for Giant.

    However,...

    During the warm months, in the UP, the mosquitoes look like B-52s on steroids. A couple years back, I saw two of them carrying a full grown deer back in the woods, to eat later!

    Keep in mind, that your LBS just might get a MUCH better rate to ship than you can get - typically like 50%.
