Model/Year: XTC Composite 29er 1 2012

Pros: So light, stiff, super responsive

Cons: Standard wheels are a little heavy; sometimes cornering is a little dicey, but that might be because it's too big for me

Recommendation: I wouldn't recommend someone of my size riding this as a first bike since it's meant for someone taller, but if it's your size or you can handle it, it's great!

Model/Year: 2011 XTC 29er 1

Pros: Feels like it rides on rails
Great climber
fairly light stock weight

Cons: Geometry doesnt inspire downhill confidence
sterring can be a bit awkward at times

Recommendation: Overall a great bike from giant. If you can afford to spend the extra money to get the 1 instead of the 2 you will be quite happy with the marginal component upgrade. Great climber, if your looking to begin cross country racing this is a great budget bike to get started on.
