This was my first mountain bike that I purchased in June 2104. I only wanted a bicycle to ride without having to change into cycling clothing, shoes etc. I wanted to be able to get on it with shorts, a t-shirt, my ballcap and shoes then just go cruising. It will work out well with the gravel roads and the roughed up paved roads around my local area. I gave it away when I moved in June 2019.

After I moved in June 2019 I planned on buying a new mountain bike because of all the great places to ride. I'm a "roadie" but this place is mountain bike crazy. I went to Sun and Spokes Bike Shop and told him what I was wanting. Mark told me about each bike with instructions to stop him once he had more bike than I needed. I settled on the Giant Talon 2 and love riding it.I was told when I arrived in Sierra Vista that most of the paved roads were rough surfaces and I would find my riding more enjoyable on a mountain bike or what they call a gravel bike. With two road bikes at the time, I was going to stick to them for the majority of my riding. That would change with my hip replacement in September 2019. By luck I found a used 2018 mint condition Specialized Diverge Comp. I bought this the same place I bought my Giant Talon 2.

Frame design made for comfort and distance. Two shock absorbers for riding comfort are located under the seat and under the handlebars. Tires are 700-38, bigger than a road bike smaller than mountain bike tires. Really comfortable to ride.
