Model/Year: Giant Trance X1 / 2012

Pros: This bike handles great over everthing I've thrown at it, from large roots, rocks,steep down hills, g-outs, 12' drop offs, and even some steep dirt jump pump rythem sections.

Cons: Haven't really found any...

Recommendation: Highly...

Pros: Extremely versatile ride. Plush, but easily controlled. Responsive and forgiving.

Cons: Original seat was too hard and flat.

Recommendation: Bought an '07 X1. Great all around trail bike. Does it all very well.

September 15, 2009
Pros: Pretty much everything. Does what a dedicated trail bike should.

Cons: Headset is crap.

Recommendation: Great bike at an even better price.

Pros: Everything! It climbs and bombs. Just point and shoot. No picking lines really.

Cons: Gotta buy better peddles. Im a plat rider. Clicks suck!

Recommendation: Buy it you love it. Any higher model is that much better. Buut you get all the right components with this model and a lot less of the price. Recommend a new front tire.

Recommendation: I just recently purchased the '09 Trance X3 and love it. The climb is more efficient than my '99 hard tail and the decent is unbelievable. I knew when I started not to test ride a full suspension until I was ready to buy but who knew it could be this good.
