    Oops... was thinking about the incoming NRS2 (hopefully only a few more weeks). It's an XTC2 Disc...

    until i got to the picutes, i was wondering why you were selling an nrs 2 to get an nrs 2

    does this not belong in the classifieds though?
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    Seems like a nice bike, do you take good care of it despite its age? Est. miles?

    2003 Giant XTC 2

    Yes, this should be in the classified. I suppose I was lazy.

    Giant Guy, Mileage is 1205 km per the computer installed at time of purchase . I have kept this bike tuned and in great shape. You are correct in that $600 U.S. is around the same as $800 Cdn. Per the post, it has new brakes, new suspension lowers, and a new rear tire. Not to mention, I replaced the brake levers in the spring as well.

    I love this bike (my wife doesn't get why I want a new one), I just want full suspension and have a great connection for Giants so I ordered an 05' NRS 2. I also experience some back issues from time to time, so the full suspension was something I had been thinking about. In any case, if you are seriously interested, just let me know and we can work something out (freight, payment, etc...) Thanks.

    I dont know, and I doubt I could dish out or save up enough money for that bike, although it is really nice. I love that graphite-like finish on the silver.

    Tell me how your '05 NRS2 is. I have this years, and its really nice. The main difference is the carbon frame, obviously, and a few componet tweaks. The composite frame isnt too much lighter than mine, is it? I though it only shaved off a pound or so, but I could easily be mistaken.

    New suspension lowers are a good thing! Otherwise I'd be a little skeptical of the 03 Skareb Comp. Looks like a nice bike, enjoy your NRS!
