is my 95' Giant 870 with a 97' Girvin Cross Link Pro on the front.
No matter what horror I inflict on this fork and frame it keeps
rolling. I have done everything from 24 hour races to long distance
bike tours with the Giant. It has evolved from mountain bike to
commuter/ touring beast and seen a ton of countryside. I have plans
to throw on a Brooks saddle and a bob trailer to make it even more
long distance worthy. This picture was taken on a 3 day trip down
the C&O Canal.
should also note that the Girvin Cross Link is the toughest suspension
fork ever made. With the simple spring and linkage there isn't much
that can go wrong. This one is 11 years old!
am off to ride the Giant home in a thunder storm after I send this!
