I’ve been doing a lot of mountain biking lately, so I decided to upgrade my rather old mountain bike.  After shopping around for a few weeks, I landed this great looking 2021 Giant Talon 2 in Red Clay.  Really like the color, and it’s got most all the modern features I was looking for.  It has 27.5” wheels with nice wide tires, 1 x 9 drivetrain, hydraulic disc brakes, wide 30.7” handlebars, and a short stem.  Have a look:
