    Getting Back into it

    Hi Guys,
    Brand new member here. I used to ride a lot up around North Queensland but haven't had much of a chance in years. I've decided I want to get back into it and I've come across someone selling a Giant Halo 1 - 2010. It's in really good nick from what I've seen on the seller's listing, but I was hoping to get an opinion from anyone who owns/has ridden one of these if possible! Wondering what they are like to ride and if they are a good intermediate bike. Any help would be great!

    Cheers.

    They are less of an intermediate bike and more of a beginner bike. They are not bad by any means, but if you see yourself progressing quickly, you may want to get something with a bit better components

    Thanks for the warm welcome!
    What about a Gialt Talon? I'm only going with Giant because the parts are ceap and pretty readily available. Is that a more intermediate bike do you think?
