    Anthem X 26er discontinued?

    I might be outta the loop here, but did Giant discontinue the Anthem X 26er? I don't find it on the website.

    I was hoping to build up a carbon version for next year.

    Giant doesn't have many 26" options left in the US. Many of them disappeared in the 2012/2013 transition. Although it's not a problem for me personally, there are a lot of disappointed people. I suspect, somehow, that Giant is very quietly preparing for the death of the 26" wheel altogether, and transitioning everything to 650b and/or 29er.

    Wow.

    I've never ridden a 27.5" bike, but I can't imagine me being able to discern much of a difference between that (27.5") and a 29er ... or for that matter, a 26" bike.

    Coming from a 2010 Fisher Paragon, I built up an '12 Anthem X 26 aluminum frame. Really love a dually now, and the smaller wheel size (for me) has more mobility, if that makes sense.

    Oh well. I'll continue to ride what I have.
