Any bike that is used for downhill specific will require more maintenance so be prepared if you have not already owned a DH bike. No experience with the Brodie but lots with the Giant. The shop i worked at sponsored numerous riders and gave them these bikes as part of the sponsorship. They were great performing bikes but we had to warranty a couple for cracking issues. Could have just been a fluke but I still think they are good bikes. Have you ever ridden either?
