First off thank you all for your suggestions. Spent a little time looking for a used Giant Talon 2..hard to find it seems. New is $650..a little too much for my budget.

Just today, I found a 2007 Giant Ranier for initially $520, but I got him down to $450. Bought it from a bike shop, so it was all tuned up and ready to go. It came with half clip, half flat pedals, and wanted full flats. Got a set from him for an extra $45.

I look forward to taking it on the trail. First impressions versus my 2014 Giant Revel are night and day. Much better forks, adjustable 100mm travel. Plus the frame is the proper size for my height, whereas the Revel has an XL frame with 26" tires. Workable but awkward for a 5'9 guy.
