I'm looking at getting a new bike. I want to focus specifically on trials,urban, dj but may spend up to 20% of my time doing XC. I'm thinking of getting the Giant STP1. Any suggestions, preferences, tips or advice are very welcome and would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

The 16 or 18 inch Cowans are XC-able. So are the larger size Azonic Evo II frames.
I rode mine on a couple of XC rides and it was fine. My only advice for taking a DJ frame on a XC ride is to get a longer stem. I had a 45mm stem for jumping. Stuck on a 100mm for XC riding. Otherwise, your cockpit is going to feel too cramped.

My DJ saddle was too uncomfortable for XC riding, so get a saddle that will feel good for hours, like a WTB Speed V. They're tough and feel good, I have one on all my bikes.
