Not bad at all for the price honestly. You’ll get a better group set going with a hardtail but I think FS is worth the buy in. Only thing is it does not have a dropper post. Once you start having fun I think it’ll be a worthwhile upgrade. Plenty of good and “cheap” ones from companies like oneup or even the giant branded post.ilikemtb999
Tell me why this is a bad buy: https://www.giant-bicycles.com/us/stance-29-2
Be mindful, BMXer used to fixies who hasn't ridden in ~12 years and is now an out of shape dad. Also, we obviously don't have the terrain you have out west so really only flatland trails and riding with wife and the kid.
$1600 is already too rich for me but that looks to be where "good" FS bikes even start.
Also, 6'1" 240. So I'd assume a large frame would fit? Maybe step up to extra large? I know each manufacturer has their own idea of what size frame fits which height.
I was thinking about heading that route, can you post some examples? Thanks DanJoyProbably would have less rolling resistance and still enough off road grip with a set of micro knobbies when those are toast. I forgot what I have on my MTB but they’re not bad on road.
Still up in the air on these. Full Factory oversold these and my original shop isn’t getting the bikes in that they were promised in August. I’m now waiting on an email to go out from Let’s Roast in Chicago with what they’re getting so I can call them and reserve them.
