Model/Year: 2013

Pros: value

Recommendation: Trance X2 29er review

Best buy out there IMO, great performing bike that rides like a dream. Left me money in my pocket for other things which is always a plus. No regrets. Wheels could be a bit lighter but for only $2k, you have to scrimp somewhere.

Model/Year: 2009

Pros: Full suspension, light frame, strong, quality build, stays planted when suspension is properly set up.

Cons: Play in the rear bearings for the shock means replacing the ENTIRE suspension pieces. Kind of overkill if you ask me.

Recommendation: As my first foray into the full suspension mountain bike world, I could not have asked for a better piece of kit. Mine was modified from stock, with a larger fork, upgraded crankset, and a few other bits and bobs, but all told, I think I would have chosen this bike from the start. It has been a blast to ride on the trails and I'm REALLY looking forward to putting some miles on it next year.

Pros: Awesome suspension design that just works. Great Spec for price.

Cons: I was not a fan of the 120mm fork so i upgraded to the 140mm upon purchase. Giant must have felt the same as they moved to the 140mm for 2011

Recommendation: If you into all day, all mountain type riding this bike is for you.

Pros: Great value ,great spec, looks great and is comfortable

Cons: i think the grips are a bit thin

Recommendation: Just bought in 2010 , this bike is a great ride, previous ride is an old faithful giant Yukon, this is so much more comfortable.

Pros: Handles great, lightweight, durable.

Cons: Nothing yet!

Recommendation: This bike rocks! This is my first full suspension bike but all I can say is it rides great, handles like a dream and crushes climbs. Made a few minor upgrades but comes with great components...stock Kenda Nevegal tires rule! Maestro suspension is sick! Overall awesome bike!
