2016 Giant Sedona

The 2016 Giant Sedona… before upgrades

The 2016 Giant Sedona is the successor to the 1987 Free Spirit Pinnacle as my daily rider bike.

Somewhere between the 1987 Pinnacle and the Huffy Superia I had a couple years ago, the Sedona is a comfort bike designed for easy cruising and getting from point A to point B while staying comfortable.

Unlike both of those bikes, the Sedona consists of name-brand components. The 21-speed drive-train is mostly made by Shimano, with Sram shifters.

To further make the Sedona my “ultimate” daily rider, I added an aftermarket wire basket.

As of December 2019, the Sedona is riding on 26×2.0″ Schwalbe Marathon tires. I did a ghetto tubeless setup using the “split tube” method on both tires, so the Sedona is now 100% tubeless.
