go im-pess them BMXers for all us. STP1 is a dope bike. the fork is p.i.m.p. 300 at the lbs for your STP3? thats good. I ordered the STP1 frame from my rep for 50 big ones aand i hope it was worth that much. lolJOSH130 said:I wish I could have afforded the STP 1, but I did get a STP 3 for only 300. Not bad since I'd probably change parts around on the STP 1 anyway. I love the geometery though, it is a great bike.
Even my hardcore BMX friends were impressed.
Why not just buy a second bike for XC?gforce said:I've been a Giant STP 2 owner for a day. Paid $550 plus tax for it. It's a sweet looking bike. And it feels really comfortable to ride. I am itching to take it out on the trails around my home ASAP. The STP1 was too pricey for me and the STP3 did not have the same frame.
Question...Do you think this bike will serve well for extended XC rides? Has anyone taken it for a long duration? I will use it for a ton of cardio training.
Anyone else with an STP2?
So far I've read nothing but good things about the STP line. Ofcourse it's limited because it's so new.
Did you get the regular size (14") or the large (15") STP? I informed the LBS that I will be doing some XC biking on it and he suggested the large. The regular rode a little small to me as well. And I'm 5'8" tall.canada17 said:I have used mine on everything from DJing to xc and even freeride use, I change over the tires depending on what I am doing. It is ok for XC but the cock pit is a little cramped for a LONG ride, I would change the stem maybe if it was gonna stay xc for awhile
