    Giant Rainier?

    Found a Giant Rainier that is in great shape for sale. Its a few years old. Everything I can find about it says it is a womens specific bike. Is this the case or did they make it in both a few years ago. It is a 19" with mainly x7 components.

    Once upon a time, the Rainier was available in both mens and womens. I had a 2007(I think) Rainier. I think that was the last year it was available in a mens bike. For a while later the Rainier was a womens bike.

    It is a good bike, great components. The only reason I sold mine was I was talked intro a smaller frame size than I wanted and, you guessed it, it was too small. So I sold it. A friend of mine has the bike and she loves it!
    Remember when we were kids and our Mom's said we could not play in the mud? I'm making up for it now!!

    This is my Ranier that I recently built frame up. I built it exclusively as my little road rocket, hence the Kenda Kross Plus tires. I bought the frame from a guy that used to work and race out of a shop in the SF Bay area. The crank and chainrings were some custom billet hardware that was made for him. The rest is what I bolted to it, XT f/r derailleur, Juicy 5's, etc.
