Details

Giant's Rainier 29er 1 offers women a big-wheeled ride that carves singletrack, climbs steeps and pounces over rough terrain with ease thanks to Giant's quick-handling, responsive ALUXX-aluminum frame. Up front, the SunTour suspension fork takes the bite out of rocky, rooty sections with 100mm of travel. Plus, you're ready to roll any terrain with the Giant 29-inch rims with Kenda knobbies that cruise over nearly anything. Equally impressive is the Rainier's crisp-shifting Shimano/SRAM 24-speed drivetrain and powerful Avid disc brakes that offer all-weather stopping power.

    Comments:

    This is my first 29er. I have been riding roadies and bmxes all my life and finally thought it was about time I got off road with a 29er. I got this bike for the fit. I am 5.4, 106 lbs with a pretty normal length upper body-- shorter legs. Most women specific designs are shorter on the top, designed for shorter arms. I tried specialized and trek women's fit bikes and they were too cramped and less aggressive compared to men's bikes. I was considering a men's fit-- trek mamba and x-caliber but the stand over height was too steep. The rainier (size small) was the closest and most comfortable frame design I could find. The geometry is just perfect for small women like me. I put the seat up to it's highest configuration and changed the stem to 90mm and the fit is absolutely perfect. I've put on about 300 miles on this bike. I've taken it off road in sand, snow and mud and it performed well in all those conditions. The stock tires can get slippery in wetter conditions but lower tire pressure helps to manage this. Overall, this bike performs well. Great beginner/intermediate bike that's a great base for future upgrades.
