Giant Talon 3 2017 Mountain Bike


Hi I’m Greg Griffiths from Ivanhoe cycles
and this is the Giant Talon 3 for 2017. This bike has an aluminium alloy frame,
front suspension which is both adjustable and has the lockout so you
can turn it off on those times you don’t need it.
Hydraulic disc brakes both front and rear which are just operated by the –
obviously the brake lever which doesn’t require much pressure at all to apply
them fully so very good for feathering the brake if you just want to have a
light touch of the brakes just to ease your speed a little or, to apply
properly, you just squeeze them hard so the brakes work really well and work
well in all weather conditions. This bike has a 24 speed gear system so we have
three chain rings at the front – a small, a medium and a large
and eight cogs at the rear which cover quite a wide range so the gear range on this
bike is suitable for most sort of off-road conditions whether it’s a very steep
hills or you know on the flat on the trails. Gear shifting is just a matter of
a click of the lever to change up and a click of the lever at the front to change down.
These bikes come in five sizes. All of them will have provision for drink
bottles, have pannier rack mounting points so you can put a rack on the back if you
need to carry some stuff with you. They come with a quick-release seat post so you can
quickly and easily adjust the seat height. Both of the wheels have quick
release levers so removal of wheel is just a matter of undoing the lever and
the wheel drops out. Likewise on the rear. So, not a super expensive bike but
something that’s suitable for a reasonable amount of semi serious
off-road riding that’s – it’s not something you would race in the national
championship but if you just want to go out in the bush of a weekend without
spending a fortune, a bike like this will certainly do the job for you. So, if
you’re interested in something like this or maybe something more upmarket or
you’d like to see what’s available a little bit cheaper, just to call into the
store. We have a wide range of bikes to choose from. Thanks! you
