Interesting point...I personally have a problem keeping weight over the front and had to size down with longer stem on my 29'ers...I wonder how the feel is on this bike...I would love to try one as I used to have a Trance...Anyone else think the seat tube angle looks silly slack? Going to be a nightmare to setup for someone with long legs and a shorter reach.
Yeah I think soanyone gonna be trading their 29er Anthem for one of these? I haven't ridden the Anthem yet but I was very interested in one before I saw this. The Trance 29er seems like a better fit (at least on paper) for me but I wonder if anybody is willing to jump the Anthem ship onto the Trance?
Giant Australia have anounced through their Facebbok page that 2013 models are due for their official release mid August 2012 and will be updated on the Australian website soon after.Anyone know when pricing will be released?
Yeah, I know what you mean...this bike is like a huge blockbuster movie starring all the big names...some huge expectations...I hope it can live up to it!I have a 2011 Trance X2... one of the things I love about my bike is its versatility... I can pedal all day and climb anything.... But it really shines when I wanna throw a whip over a roller, hit a good drop, lean in berms, hop a huge log, and see how high I can rise off a kicker... Dont know that a 29r is capable of that versatility..
