My 13 yo daughter wanted my almost perfectly new Raleigh Talus (great bike also) and so I went shopping/researching for my next bike. I wanted to stay under $600 and after much reading and watching YouTube videos I decided on the Talon 3. Incredible bike. Looks, components, fork, I could not have asked for more for the amount of bike I was getting. It runs like a dream and the guys (at Ride Away bikes) are so knowledgeable it was nice to not be pressured into buying I didn't really need. Thanks you guys!!!!!
After 20 years no riding a bike I decide for 2017 start riding again. After weeks of research the 2017 Talon was the best choice for my budget (because the components) and I really love it!!! is a lightweight, sturdy construction and well made machine. You can not be wrong with this entry level bike.
