Model/Year: 2011

Pros: Efficient pedaling
Dependable drivetrain
Relatively lightweight cockpit components (Giant branded)
Comfortable for all day riding
Lifetime frame warranty

Cons: Long chainstays
Avid Elixir 3 brakes
Heavy stock wheels

Recommendation: I rode this bike for 2 years and really have no complaints. The long chainstays made switchbacks challenging, but they also provide stability for fast sketchy descents. The design is unchanged for 2012 and 2013, and of course the original owner gets Giant's lifetime frame warranty, making this a solid choice for trail riding and racing.
