At Bicycle Garage Indy, we have started to mention that 2014 will be a big year for the 27.5" (or 650B) tire and wheel standard for mountain bikes. There is gathering momentum for this combination of obstacle clearing wheel and lighter, nimbler sized bikes, especially when a smaller frame size is needed.
Giant Bikes will offer 27.5 bikes across their entire line, and we we already have their entry level Talon 27.5 5 ($549) in stock at Bicycle Garage Indy. This bike features an ALUXX aluminum frame with a classic hard tail design, updated with Giant’s innovative new 27.5-inch wheel technology. It also features Tektro cable disc brakes, a SunTour 100mm travel fork and an 8×3 drivetrain. It a great choice for the recreational or sport rider looking for nimble, easy riding bike. This bike also available, sized for women, as the Giant Tempt 5.
Bicycle Garage Indy has a full selection of hard-tail and full-suspension mountain bikes from Cannondale, Giant and Trek. We also feature bikes from Colnago, Electra and brand new at Bicycle Garage Indy Co-Motion Cycles Tandems.
Bicycle Garage Indy has three locations to serve you; Bicycle Garage Indy North (Indianapolis, in the Dean Road at 82nd St.), South (just west of I-65 on County Line Rd, Greenwood), and the BGI Downtown, in the Indy Bike Hub YMCA at City Market.
