I've had a year or so away from biking due to college, and about to get back into it this summer and I'm looking into buying myself a 29'er. I've been looking at Giant and Specialized because I know they're frames are pretty large (I'm 6'6) and I'm having trouble distinguishing any major differences between these two bikes.
Talon 29er 1 (2012) - Bikes | Giant Bicycles | United States
Specialized Bicycle Components : Rockhopper 29
To me it looks like the Talon has a step up in brakes, but other than that, the components all seem about equal. However, I've been out of it for a while. Can anyone give me some insight on any major advantages/disadvantages of one over the other? Other than the brakes, the Rockhopper is winning in looks, but I'd rather have something more stable.
Also just found the Trek Mamba if anyone has some insight on that one.
