    Granted I'm a mountain biking noob, but I have a hard time imagining that I'd ever want to be clipped in while offroad--seems counter-intuitive to me(having never tried it of course). I do love my...

    I tested Trek, Specialized, Kona, and Giant. At the price point I was looking at, around $700, while I'm no expert, they all seemed of equal quality. Slightly different specs of course, but they all...

    New Bike Day!

    First ever mountain bike, purchased yesterday a.m. By last night had already trail ridden 3 hours and got it nice and dirty! Most fun I've had on a bike in ages.

    2014 Giant Talon 27.5 4

    Well, the Giant 27.5 4 was the winner. Got it this morning and promptly took it out on some nice trails around here and had a blast. Dunno why I waited so long to get a mountain bike! I can see my...

    Thanks--again, interesting perspective. I'm going back today to do my little shootout and likely bring one home----I'll report back if I do!

    Thanks for the reply---very interesting. One thing I DID prefer about the 27.5 that I forgot to mention is that it was noticeably lighter than the 29 (I'm 5'8", 130lbs, so not a big guy by any...
  11. Dilemma: when two rather different bikes both feel like a keeper on test rides....

    Have been shopping around for my first mountain bike, and have narrowed it down to two (fortunately, both at the same LBS):

    A Trek X-Caliber 6 29'r, and a Giant Talon 27.5 4

    That does look good. But being such a noob, I'm a little wary of ordering a bike online. I suppose after more test rides I might feel comfortable doing that.

    Just front--I'm looking at 29" hardtails like the Specialized Hardrock, Kona Lava Dome, Trek X-Caliber, etc. (at least that's what I've stumbled upon so far at my LBS's)

    Yeah, this Trek is on sale at my LBS until Christmas for $260 (down from $309). That could be 40 bucks I can put towards MY new bike;)

    That mindset as to the fit is kind of where I'm leaning, but...
