Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Light. Fast. Great handling. Quick. Climbs like a mountain goat on steroids. Did I mention it's FAST? This bike was born out a pro racers needs (Carl Decker), and this is what Giant created. It is a beast of a machine.

Cons: It is a hard tail. The lack of rear suspension makes it scary light, but you lose a bit of comfort. If you are looking for a Laz-E-boy on wheels, THIS IS NOT YOUR BIKE! Comfort is sacrificed in the name of speed. Those long 3 hour rides will leave you sore, even if you are wearing padded shorts.

Recommendation: Buy this bike if you want a serious riding/racing machine. Once you've tasted the sweetness of carbon fiber, you'll never want to ride aluminum again.
