    Yes it is. I have a 2011 X3. It would be tough to find a better speced and performing bike for the price.

    I just test rode the 2013 Trance X 29er 1. I couldn't for the life of me get the rear suspension (CTD Fox Maestro) dialed in. Also took out the 2013 Trek Fuel EX 8 26er with DRCV and CTD Fox). That bike was dialed in perfectly from Trek in California.

    Yeah dood totally! I mean who would have thought that a guy named trek13 would troll another brands forum and find the brand that he bloody named himself after was better than the brand the forum he was trolling. Weird, hey?

    Ill take the advice of the professionals at MBA about their review of the bike over some homer troll. Pathetic.

    Hey relax. I'm anything but a troll. I was interested in buying a used 2012 Trance X3 and found the review. So I posted it and was looking for more comments. That deal fell through though. The new 29er Trance 1 that the bike shop had, must have been on low psi in back because all three setting CTD felt similar. I need to go back and have them check it. My username is what it is because I bought a 2013 Trek 7.3 FX and love it. In all honesty I feel that Trek and Giant are on par with each other. Both excellent companies with great products. Oh yeah, I'm definitely thinking of buying a leftover Anthem X 29er 2 by the way. I just don't care for the Avid Elixar 1 brakes. I asked the LBS how much more he would charge to put on SLX brakes. Still waiting to here.
