2017 is a great year to buy a bike. It’s an update year. Most of our brands have introduced completely redesigned models, as well as new product lines that are much more than new paint. Felt’s released the VR and FR line. Scott’s updated its MTB suspension. Cervelo’s just released the p5x super bike, and Giant, who we’ll focus on today, has made major updates to its entire off road line up.
While Giant mountain bikes have always been good, we’ve been blown away by the value, parts spec and paint of this new Trance Advanced 2. With carbon wheels, boost hub spacing, updated suspension and a more appropriate 1x11 drivetrain, the Trance makes great use of the most current MTB technologies, managing to squeeze them altogether into one very nice package.
OK, I suppose that we could be a bit more specific in our praise.
