I have just recently purchased a Giant Talon 1 29er 😀 Bike seems to be a great fit for what I intend to do (xc trails here in southern Indiana) I selected the Large 20" model as i am 6’2" and around 200 lbs. So far I have only had it on some trails on private property due to the massive amounts of rain 😢
I have yet ride any "real trails"… but located 30 min from French Lick, and an hour to Brown County / Obannon Woods….
Anyway- i am enjoying all the information you all kindly share.
Welcome rocketrepairguy,good to have you join us here on the forums,coffee and donuts are on the table,hahhahahaha.Me and you would ride the same bike,I am also 6’2" and around 200 plbs. Normally,I got al bulked up on weights and now weigh 300 plbs.Used to be in prime riding shape at 190 plbs and 6% body fat,I gotta get that turned back around,hahahaha.
I live in Indianapolis. Your gonna love the trails at French Lick and Brown County. They are awesome Midwest trails. Hopefully the rain will ease up and things dry out for us. Keep an eye on hmba.org for trail conditions.
