    Giant Lust Advanced 27.5

    Any women out there have any seat time on this bike? Would love to hear a ride review or more details. Thanks

    My wife is looking at these as we speak. We are planning to visit a dealer that has the Lust 2(non advanced) in stock. I will update with what she finds.

    My wife has the Lust Advanced 2 ordered but I have not seen much feedback on the Lust in general. Thanks

    My shop unfortunately only has an XS built and on the floor. However, my wife has ridden a men's small and medium. She is 5'4". Only parking lot test, with some curb hopping and grass riding.

    Just not enough for any real comment on how the bike is. The industry does a great job for shops and media getting to test bikes, but when it comes to the people dropping the money, they fail to make test rides available to the us. Very frustrating.

    The medium certainly is huge for her, however she will be on a women's small Advance Lust 2 in the near future.

    Well...my wife went to ride the Lust 2
    and it just so happened they were unboxing a lust 2 advanced at the same time.

    She liked the Lust 2, but it didn't feel that much different than her current Fuel EX8 WSD. When she got back to the shop they had already assembled the Advanced 2...she was in love. Needless to say the next day I surprised her with it. We have been out 3 times so far and she is loving the bike. She rides an XS and the only downside is the room between the bottle cage and the rear shock.

    The bike its self is fantastic.

    Nice. Any chance your shop got a weight on it? That would be interesting. Enjoy. J

    When we go back to pickup my Superfly I will have them get a weight on it. Superfly is in having the shock repaired under warranty.

    My LBS weighed it and it's about 25.5 lbs out of the box for a small. I made some mods to mine (wheel swap, 1x11, and some cockpit stuff) and got it around 23.5.
