    Giant Anthem x2

    Looking for a bike for a friend and came across a Giant Anthem x2 which I believe is a 2009. I m not familiar with this bike. Are there any problems areas with this bike? From what i have found on the web, 100 mm suspension, rear looks similar to my Fuel's rear, and looks like XT components? According to Bicycle Blue Book , the asking price is pretty fair.

    The only real issue is the potential for the frame to break. Problem areas are the top tube/seat tube junction, and the drive side lower shock mount. For original owners, this has not been a problem, due to the lifetime frame warranty. Sadly, that doesn't apply to second hand owners.

    Thanks. Turns out that the bike is a medium and my buddy would need a large at least.
