    New rider starting out with a Giant Talon 1 29er, all reflectors have been removed just now. I love this bike but next step is to change to a better suspension. If anyone selling a fox fork, please PM. Cheers!

    Here's ours. All stock and yes, still toting reflectors. These bikes are way more capable than we are for sure. They've been awesome so far.

    Spoons are sweet mate. It's the only saddle I could comfortably ride on all day!

    My 2012 Australian XTC2. Grips replaced with Lizard Skins charger lock ons. Minor brake upgrade to Avid Elixir 7's.

    I've had this bike for 5 months and it has been great. I'll soon be upgrading to a Trance X 29er 0 as it suits my current riding style. The bike will be staying in my extended family and should see some drivetrain upgrades from a bike mad relative

    2013 XTC 2



    I have carried out the obligatory reflector (and bell!) removal. Also pulled the stickers off the rims (one was already lifting) and most of the ones from the fork. Shimano DX PD-MX30 pedals and makeshift chainstay protector (zip tied strips of polypropylene) are the only modifications as yet. Single chainring and chainguide are waiting in the wings until I get the necessary tools to install them.


    Does anyone know what the black on silver "2" sticker means?

    The 2 refers to the model. i.e. the 2 in "XTC 29er 2".

    Here in Australia last year there was a choice between the "XTC 29er 0" and "XTC 29er 2".

    Crossposting from the SS section.

    This was my last rigid frame before I got a FS bike. Thought of selling it, or at least trying. But since it wouldn't be worth that much money, and as I had some parts laying around, decided to go for a SS build and keep a second bike for some rides around the block and to roll on asphalt easily.

    This is a 01' XtC 840 and during 11 years has seen three different builds, being this the third. And I can't say it will be the last! Still rides well, and that stem/steerer has been the best ever combo I have put my hands on. Still haven't find anything that comfortable.

    Currently has it can be seen, I'm using it as a SS, road oriented, bike.

    Nice Giant hard tails on this thread. I have a 2010 Talon 0 26er that I have slowly built up with parts to just how I want it. I notice that most of the Talons are 29er and that 26er may not have been available in the States. For my riding on single track as well as XC I'm happy with the 26er though curious at the difference feel of a 29er. I will post some pics soon.

    Currently its is setup as follows:
    Rock Shox Reba RLT 120mm (2012)
    wheels - Mavic 721/HopePro
    brakes - SLX Hydraulic disc 180/160mm
    drive train - XT/SLX RD and Casette
    EastonEA70 Bar, EA90 Stem
    SPD Clipless - dual platform

    Giant Talon 0 (2010)

    As mentioned above, this is how she's looking nowadays...

    I still cut down the steerer tube eventually. When the time comes I will upgrade the crank set to SLX.

    Rides very well and currently weighs around 27lbs or 12.2kg.

    The frame is definitely quality, not the lightest but strong and rigid.

    Shifters and derailleurs X9
    Brakse Hope Tech M4 both sets
    rotors 185 front and back Hope floating saw blades
    stem Hope
    Bars Truvativ Carbon T20 700 MM
    Wheels Stans ZTR Arch EX on Hope pro hubs front and back
    Cranks raceface ride 175 mm
    Chain rings raceface Turbine 26 and 36 2 X 10

    I haven't ridden this frame since I bought my TranceX in 2010. It's a 2003 Yukon HT. It's my first bike and I'll never sell it. It's currently a frame only and I'm going to strip and repaint this winter for a SS build next spring. I do miss riding a HT at times.

    Get out and ride even when you don't want to because ten minutes into the ride you'll be glad you did.
