    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    It's clearly not a bike for most people most of the time, or that couldn't be, umm, refined a bit. But, literally no one thought it was going to go down like this:

    Levy: Yoann, here's a bike we built as a joke. Oddly I actually kinda like it, but I'm an idiot whose opinion is worthless.

    Barelli: This bike fucks.

    I had 37 cents on broken head tube. Or the chainstay breaking from all of the chain slap.

    That was well worth the wait.

    2021 Bikes That Make Your Shorts Tighter.

    They are probably like, ďdonít tell him how to get an unsponsored rider to win in Chile!!!!Ē


    Also, how much more time do you think he would have put over the Commencal if he just went chainless the entire way???

    Trance X. I picked one of these up yesterday, it does have the SLX cranks as shown in the pictures. And it is a pretty sweet deal. A bit heavy at just over 33lbs but my old bike weighed that and it was a 26” so still ok.

    Is there really not gonna be a Ripley AF? The Ripmo AF with SLX build is $4,000, but that's way too much bike for those of us who live in places like Missoula where a hardtail can keep up with FS on a lot of trails. Yes, I am aware there are moreover rocks when you get out of town.

    Ripley AF SLX for $4,000 would be amazing. I might even be able to buy one
    No longer stuck.

    RidEgg Trail Pistol? Looks like they don't have SLX under the options but pretty sure they could set that up.

    I wouldnt be surprised if canfield has something reasonably priced to fill that niche. Im guessing its only a matter of time before the revised toir/riot comes out. New balance and one look amazing. The One is a badass bike

    Do you have the 2 or 3? That bike looks so good on paper. I might have to go with the cheap Carbon one because I I prefer RS suspension over Fox but its looks like Giant are finally a "deal" again.

    I hope they sell that Trance X as a frame only in the aluminum.

    The 2. I think it is an amazing deal for what you get. I had been trying to find a Norco Fluid FS 1, shorter travel but another great spec for a great price, but none to be sourced, and then I found the X and jumped on it. Dealer said they had gotten 10 in and I grabbed the last one, they were all gone in a week.

    Does Giant even sell frames only? Don’t see anything on their website.

    They sell carbon frames. The Trance X Advanced is $3k.

    Trance x might be the first giant id put at the top of the list. They went all out on that thing. Surprised they put that much standover and added a flip chip

    Giant makes a good bike every 5 years or so. Now they'll sit back, make the same bike for the next 5-6 years until it's a couple years overdue for a revamp, then come out with something worthwhile again.

    Kona operates on more or less the same business model.

    Haha. Remember how good the 2015 Reign was when it came out? Still see so many of that generation around.

    Yeh, I see it now on the US site. Doesnít show On the Canadian one, or they have it well hidden.

    still rocking this 6 seasons later. Trance Sx. Even if I get new FS bike this bike still shreds and I am unlikely to part with it considering its worth pennies to what is invested., just so glad I bought the size I wanted and not what the Giant Rep wanted me on which was a small or Medium. Size L = 440mm reach which at 5'8 is a great reach number but its large size small or a small size medium in 2021 sizing. I even managed to cram a 180mm one-up dropper into it.

    The new Giant Trance X might be how I get more modern geo(namely a steeper STA) slightly longer reach, and 29er wheels, hopefully I can get 2.6 inch on 35mm rims on it. Also hoping I can get a 210mm one-up dropper on it. Ill either get the cheap Carbon or the cheap AL and pimp it out. My only real complaint is press fit BB.....The completes also are 35mm bars which IMO suck.
