Giant ATX 1 Mountain Bike 2017


Hi, Greg Griffiths here from Ivanhoe Cycles
and this is the 2017 Giant ATX 1, a recreational mountain bike with an aluminium frame, front
suspension, disc brakes, and 24-speed gears. So a bike that’s really suited to the recreational
rider, perhaps just getting started in mountain biking, maybe a teenager who need a bike to
and from school or a bit of fitness or if there’s a Bike Ed program at the school where
they do some mountain biking – a great bike to get started on without blowing the budget. So quite a nice bike. As I said, an ALUXX aluminium frame, quite
lightweight but very strong. Suspension forks that are both adjustable
with this knob or that you can lock-out with this here, just by turning the switch you can have
the suspension activated or not. This bike also have 27 and a half inch wheels,
which is the current standard for mountain bike wheels, previously they were 26 but this
is a bigger diametre wheel, which allows the rider to roll over more obstacles in more
safety. Also the bike has a little more momentum,
with the bigger wheel, so they travel a little bit faster. Shimano 24-speed gear system. 3 cogs at the front, 8 at the rear. Very easy to operate shifters. One click of the lever is one gear change. Up or down. The frame also has water bottle mounting points,
a pannier rack mounting point on the rear – so you can use it as a commuter and carry
some things on the back or if you want to do some weekend touring you can put a rack
on the back and your picnic lunch or whatever on the back and head out onto the trails. So, quite a nice bike. Quite lightweight. Lovely colour this year. Nice level of components, and a decent price. So if you’re interested in something like
this, or maybe something a little dearer, just come in and see us and we’ll help you
out with whatever we’ve got. Thank you.
