    4X/dual on giants

    What are people racing/riding for 4x and dual. I know a nice light STP is the obvious answer but is anyone running a full bounce? I was thinking of a nice small light trance build for the rougher tracks which are becoming more common now, anyone got any thoughts??

    I really do not think any of the bikes are that great for 4x due to the geo of the frames. A reign would be the best choice but it has to much travel.

    one could maybe consider a small anthem like this one.

    i havn't ridden one myselfs so i don't know if the top tube is maybe to short on a size S. but it for sure looks like an awesome 4X bike.

    the owner said it's silimlar to the STP he had before and it rides very well. he's 1,71m tall.
    i don't know if that helps very much. i guess you have to test ride it to be sure if it fits.
