Giant ATX 2 Mountain Bike 2017

Giant ATX 2 Mountain Bike 2017


Hi, Greg Griffiths here from Ivanhoe Cycles
and this is the Giant ATX 2 for the 2017 range. It’s an aluminium framed mountain bike with
front suspension. 21-speed gears and is the first model in the
Giant range that has disc brakes, so we sell a lot of model or style of bike – and in previous
years, this exact model – particularly to teenagers or kids who have grown out of their
smaller kids bike, and they’re serious in their riding, want to ride further and faster,
or maybe ride with their parents. So it’s quite an economical bike. It comes in a small frame size like this – so
this is just a 14 inch, so with the seat all the way down you can see it’s quite short,
so it’s quite often the case that taller 9 year olds, but certainly 10 and 11 year olds
can ride this extra small size of bike. Also comes in sizes small, medium, large,
extra large. So the size range that will suit almost every
rider. All the same features on all the sizes – so
21-speed, suspension (which is adjustable). So if you’re a smaller rider, like I mentioned
with the children, you can turn these knobs which adjust the suspension to make it softer
for the lighter weight riders, and as the bikes get bigger, or the riders are heavier,
you can turn the knobs clockwise and it makes the suspension stiffer for the heavier rider. The wheels have disc brakes on this model. These are cable operated. So the cheaper, or more economical version
of disc brakes. The bike has the 27 and a half inch wheels,
which is the current standard for wheel sizes, and it’s the same as all the higher-end bikes
in the mountain bike range. The tyres that come with this are more for
tracks and trails – so not very serious off-road riding, but are great for a bike that’s going
to be used for a mixture of conditions. So whether it’s riding to and from school,
on city streets, or maybe on a bike path, to trail riding. A nice bike that will cover a wide range of
uses for a lot of people. Quite economical. And, as I said, the first model with disc
brakes. So great bike for the money. 21-speed gears, suspension, aluminium,
reasonably lightweight. A nice bike. Hope you like it. Thanks very much.
