    Giant Talon 27,5 RC LTD 2015 vs. Giant Talon 0 LTD 2015

    Hi all,

    After having spent some time scouting for my first entry level mtb, I have decided to go with a Giant Talon.

    My local bikeshop offered me these two bikes:

    - Talon 27.5 RC LTD (2015) | Giant Bicycles / Giant Bikes | Danmark

    - Talon 27.5 0 LTD (2015) | Giant Bicycles / Giant Bikes | Danmark

    They are almost similar, but the RC model has a XT front derailleur and a dirrentent (better?) fork.

    The price difference is $150. My question that I hope you can help me answer is, is it worth the $150 to choose the RC model? Both of them are awesome rides

    Thanks in advance.

    /Claus.

    Better fork, brakes and cranks for $150, definitively worth it.

    Cool, thanks for your quick reply it's what I thought, but good to get some expert advide

    Would there, in your opinion, be some "must do" upgrades to this Talon?

    There's always a place to spend money on but to get started the bike has a solid build, for upgrades I would start with the wheels and then replace/upgrade as stuff wears out.
