    Giant or Cannondale?

    Narrow it down to these two bikes, the Giant TALON 29ER1 or the Cannondale TRAIL SL29 2. Money is within dollars, the two LBS's are good, (one more offroad). The ride will be the big determining factor. What is your thoughts?

    either bike would do the job, Giant slightly had better parts but not by much. I would ride the Cannondale though its your call on which one you like. Test ride both if you can.

    Agree..ride both. I have the trail sl 4 29er and I realy like it. I test rode the talon 29er and trail sl 4, the main reason I choosed the cannondale is because the standover height wasnt as high.

    Another big plus for the Cannondale is the fork.

    The SL4 comes with a custom 1.5mm steerer tubed air fork. An air sprung fork means its more customizable and the ride will feel better because the air pressure and therefore the fork are set up for you, rather than anyone who would get on the bike.
