2012 Giant Talon 0 Mountain Bike - Test Ride at Pat's 605 in Norwalk

Top of the line in the 2012 Talon 29er Mountain Bike range is the 2012 Talon 0.  Pat's 605 in Norwalk can put you on one of these for less than you would think when you check out the specs.  This bike is made for the trails, whether in the mountains or cross country.  You'll fly over the paths, and hardly notice the rocks and roots.

Frame Technology
At the core of this entry-level off-road mountain bike lies a lightweight ALUXX SL frameset designed to handle the specific geometry demands of 26-inch wheels. A smart mix of weight, comfort and affordability are built into each frame, offering the recreational off-roader the opportunity to own a bona-fide mountain bike.

• ALUXX SL-grade, butted aluminum tubeset
• Replaceable rear dropout
• Tough and light, formed and integrated head tube junction gusset
• Integrated headset

Here are the key upgrades that you get on the 2012 Talon 0 compared to the Talon 1:

  • RockShox XC28, 100mm suspension fork
  • SRAM X5 componentry
  • Complete Avid Elixir 1 hydraulic disc brakes
  • Giant Connect handlebar, stem and seatpost
  • Sizes: S, M, L, XL
  • Color: Black/Blue
