    Comments:

    I am a college student and bought this bike on a budget. For the price this bike is amazing. It is sturdy, fast, and looks awesome. It definitely can take a beating as my first few rides were full downhill crashes while testing the limits of the hardtail. I had been used to riding downhill full suspension bikes so it took me awhile to realize that this bike is not meant for hard downhill trails. That fact should be a given though considering this is a budget bike. HOWEVER, this bike is absolutely incredible for both smooth singletrack trails and road biking alike. Now that I have been riding the types of routes and trails this bike is meant for, I am 100% thrilled with my purchase. If you are looking for a bike that can take smooth singletrack trails like a champ and road routes with ease, you can't beat the price on this Giant. You cannot find many other bikes with front and real quick release wheels and front suspension lock out for this price. Overall I would highly reccommend this bike for somebody who, like me, is on a budget but wants a versatile and incredibly sturdy bike.
