Model/Year: 2019

Pros: CHEAP, quality frame and components,1- drivetrain, comes setup tubless, nice tires, room for 2.5 (I think). Comes with dropper. Wide bars, short stem, slack head angle

Cons: Quick release rear instead of thru axle, seatpost hits braze ons, saddle is demonic. This is my first "modern" trail bike, so this is only my opinion: head tube feels nice and slack but seat tube could be more slack as well. I'm still in a cross country stance on this bike. Fork is ok, but not up to a Recon.

Recommendation: Buy a new seat same day as bike. Mine is set up with WTB comfort saddle, Ergon gp2 grips with mini bar ends, and Rockon top tube mini panniers. Also 2 USA made H2O carriers from WalMart. Buy one. I couldn't find better for price and a great lbs

Pros: Bye bye Talon the new 2019 version is just amazing.

Cons: Non

Recommendation: Hands down the best hard tail at price point.
