    2011 giant xtc 29er 1

    Hi everyone. I have the opportunity to buy a used giant xtc 1 29er. 2011 model. Bike is stock except it has elixir 5 brakes instead of shimano. Original specs here: XTC 29er 1 (2011) | Giant Bicycles / Giant Bikes | Australia

    The bike is it excellent condition with only a couple of small scuffs. I have ridden along a paved road near the 2nd hand shop (who are selling it) and it felt nice to ride but this is my first experience on a 29er. Current bike is a 97 vintage 26er. I did notice however that the fox forks make a squeak when rebounding after manually compress the shock. No idea what the air level is set at.

    im 182cm, about 90kg and currently ride mainly on the road but would like to get back into trails and single track type stuff in the local bike parks. No racing...yet at least.

    asking price is 1250 Australian. Any one got any advice on the bike or the price? Is it a good bike? Anyone got one, had one, loved it or hated it. Is a 29er a good fit for my type of riding or should I test a few 27.5ers....or is that 650bers!

    Or would i be better served waiting and saving up for a new 2014 xtc 29er 2 that my lbs still has in stock. I'd like a trance 27.5 too but maybe further down the track!!

    any advice and comments welcome

    2011 giant xtc 29er 1

    I'd say that's pretty expensive. I bought a 2012 XTC 29er 0 for 1700 new a couple of years ago. I'm in Australia too.

    It's a good bike, I rode it quite a bit and I'm a big dude 6'4 95kg. Never had problems with the frame.

    You can usually get 10% to 20% off rrp on new giants by just asking

    Thanks for the reply Skinnybeans,
    I thought it was probably a bit expensive considering that it was 2k new in 2011. Where did you get your XTC from? I am in Adelaide and there doesn't seem to be many old XTC models in stock anywhere i go.
