Powerfull shimano disc brakes, Fast and nimble, Strong welds and head tube is good designed?, Rigged fork is nice, Strong had tube
Very hard saddle?, sucks, Creaky rear end with rack and panniers?, flimsy, Sub standard wheel set for trekking and touring, Cheap and noisy drive terrain
Best Uses:
It's lighter than my last hard tail, fast and nimble and looks really nice. The Drive terrain is cheap and noisy, shifts good tho, it came with a very loose cassette!!!. I really like the rigged fork, the rear drop out seems flimsy when a rack is on with minimal weight, very creaky rear end reverberating through the frame. Not sure about how tuff the wheels are. I wouldn,'t go on a fully loaded tour on these light sub standard wheels and hubs. I will be up grading to a better quality mavic rims and Shimano XT hubs and drive terrain for sure!

Fun To Ride, Versitile, Brakes
Best Uses:
Commuting, Trails
Overall a very cool bike. Probably one of the best all around do it all bikes. The brakes are excellent. Big downside for me is that when the chain is on the middle chainring, you get major chainrub on the front derailleur when in either of the smallest three gears on the rear sprocket. Neither Fitchburg or another bike shop (Bike Doctor) could tune it out. Fitchburg stated that it is just the case with triple chainrings. I have ridden other triples that had zero chainrub. The bike mechanic at another shop told me that you should never have chainrub in the middle chainring, but he could not tune it out. Either way, you'll have a loud rattle when using the higher rear gears when in the middle chainring. Consider getting the next model up with the SRAM drivetrain.

Great bike for the money. The second Giant bike I've owned. Components are fine. Brakes are very good. Love the rigid forks. Looked for a VERY long time to find something like this.
