The new Giant XTC 29er's are out and about. This one just came in today.
26.37 lbs :D




This bike looks fast sitting still. If your in the area swing past and check it out.

daaaammmnn.. that thing looks sharp. So what's the deal with a maestro equipped Giant 29er? Was that just a big rumor or what?

I'd a thunk it woulda been lighter. What's making it over 25 pounds? Heavy cranks, and hubs and rims?

lookin' good! I guess the OEM wheels could be lighter? Digging the color scheme and the blue ano touches on the seatpost and headset.

Never been a fan of giant but that thing looks really good. Looks a lot better than anything I have seen from the other two generic bike companies. (i.e. specialized and trek) Very nice touches on the annodized parts for a stock bike.

Nice blue anodized headset and yes those rims look massive. I thought they were coming out with a singlespeed compatible version....

I dunno, looks quite nice and all and the ano bits are a nice touch, but over $2k for a 26+lb HT :rolleyes: Bit heavy IMHO, even considering the stock crappy, rebadged parts :rolleyes: Hope all the ugly Giant rebadging is all stickers and comes off easy :madman: Wonder what they might sell the frame only for?
