    Giant Talon 2007

    Fresh from the box - stock at the moment. Any suggestions for component/parts upgrades would be fantastic.

    Danm, already built up. I wish someone could give us a weight on the Talon/Alias frame

    My first upgrade on the Talon was to Avid Juicy 7 brakes; I also have an XTR/Mavic XC717 wheelset for racing, using Larsens/Crossmarks. The next upgrades are Easton EC70 Seatposts and EC70 Monkeylite handlebars - should be here by the end of the week, early next week at the latest. After that I'll be putting a Manitou R7 on it.

    Current weight with the XTR wheelset is I think about 11.8. The R7 should bring it to just over 11. The Tora is a 2.4kg fork - heavy. And the Rhyno Lites... not so light.

    Talon Upgrades

    Thanks for the recommendations. Yes - the weight of the Talo/Alias frame would be great?

    I'll check out these listed parts online - quite expensive in NZ I'm guessing.

    1998 ATX 890 Tomac frame

    This is mine, 1998 ATX 890 John Tomac frame. Oldie, but a goodie! Pic sucks, taken with my cell phone.

    XT Crank, FD and cassette, SRAM X9 RD and XO Grippers, Crossmax ST's with Michelin UST tires, Single Digit 9's.

    Also have a 2006 XTC C2 composite frame I was going to build, but I think I'm going to sell it. Too small for me.

    Brg,
    Jeff

    hey thanks man. yeah i'm gonna cut it down to exactly where i want it soon. I just got the fork, so I wanted to be sure of where I wanted to put my stem before I cut it. I'm still playing around with different stack heights. I also plan to put on a lighter crankset. I've about had it w/ race face cranksets.

    I got cought-up with the FS technology since day one, then last year I went back to HT but this time with carbon HT.

    I think carbon, Ti and scadium material's the way to go with HT frame. To be honest I'm happy at the moment until something comes up of course.
