Mountain Bike Action Shootout: Giant Talon 29er vs. Giant Yukon FX

If you're a mountain biker in the market for a new bike (or upgrading a 10-year-old hardtail), the editors at Mountain Bike Action Magazine think the Giant Talon 29er 0 and the Giant Yukon FX should be on your shopping list. They just did a shootout between the two Giant bikes to make it easy for you to compare not only the bikes, but the the riding experience you'll get from each bike. They explain:

Bike shootouts usually corral similar bikes that sell for around the same price to battle it out for supremacy. This shootout is a little different. The two bikes from Giants are only similar in price. They have different wheel sizes and a totally different approach to how those wheels connect to the trail. One bike has dual suspension, while the other has a suspension fork and a rigid rear end. So why compare these two seemingly different bikes? Because that is exactly what any rider looking for a $1000 mountain bike is going to have to do. This shootout is not so much between bikes as it is between the riding experiences you’ll get from each bike.
