    I recently upgraded from a 2013 Giant Talon 29er to a 17 Giant Trance Advanced 2. Wasn't sure about the carbon, but man every time I carry it, then my wife's bike it's an amazing difference. I looked for a long time, decided on the 2 due to SRAM/Rockshox being more fat boy friendly. Currently have the sag set to 28% rear, 31% front with no tokens as of yet. Still have quite a bit of pressure left before hitting the max.

    I'm 6'4, 300ish (Dropping quickly now that I'm riding again). My wife's Liv Hail laying on the ground..





    Also having tree issues. Clipped that one last night on a blind corner.


    So far to make the bike fit me more, I've switched to a Deity Skyline 787mm bar, 40mm (No name) stem, Deity grips, and a Fabric Titanium Scoop in Shallow.

    I never knew this forum existed. I am 250#s and know the trials of finding a bike that works. Had a Specialized endure, replaced two sets of wheels before I had a custom set of 819's laced with heavy guage spokes. Problem was I broke hubs, chains, and just seemed to wear out everything real fast. I have since purchased a Giant Anthem, and love it. I don't have as much time to ride now as I used to, but still get out 2-3 times a week in the summer. This bike doesn't seem to be the robust ride I need, but I love it and have logged about 2000 miles on the continental divide trail here in western Montana.

    248.2 as of this mornings weigh in on the doctors scale (the one that really counts)

    Weight aside as I have built some muscle too, I am down 3" on hips, 3" on waist, 1.5" on each thigh and .75" on each arm since the quoted post.

    Ride on!

    Ride; Kona Honzo ST

    This is a great forum!
    Hopefully this will be done by the end of the week so I can start tracking miles. Waiting on a new rear hub. I'm using a simple computer to start with tracking miles.

    I'm building it up for road use until I drop enough weight to start trail riding.
