    Giant Trance/Anthem comes w/ shock pump?

    Could someone tell me if new Trance/Anthem X1, X2, X3, etc... comes with a shock pump?

    The Trance X4 does not have a Fox shock, instead comes with a Giant Air. So, I'm guessing if there is a shock pump, the shock pump would be some Giant branded pump.

    I was curious because when I was looking at the accessory bags, which was attached to the Giant bike, during my shopping yesterday, I didn't see any shock pump.

    Thanks in advance!

    I received my Trance X in a box, I didn't have the lbs build the bike, so I was the first to open the box. No shock inside. I did get one with my new front fork and new rear shock.

    Not in the US. Had to buy one when I got my AX1 29er. ...seems like they think that the ~$30 added price needed to throw a shock pump in will make a difference on a $2-3k purchase...

    My 2011 Trance X Advanced SL 0 came with the standard "no name" shock pump that my previous Anthem and Trance models came with.

    My 2011 TX3 came with a no-name shock pump. Don't know though if they just threw it in because it took 3 months for them to get me my bike.

    I had to ask for the manuals. I should have checked them before leaving the shop because when I got home I found out they were for a road bike.

    I contacted giant on twitter and they said it should of I would get them to credit you for the one you bought.

    Most likely the shop kept it.

    I will point out that on the Giant website, using the Anthem X29 as an example, the Australian page shows a row for "Extras" and mentions that a shock pump is included, whereas the US site does not. I really doubt that the LBS where I bought my bike would just arbitrarily keep a shock pump if it were included with the bike...

    I'm pretty sure he's talking about the rear shock not fork especially since he mentions the giant air shock the x4 comes with.. My buddies fuel ex 5 doesn't have an air fork and he got a pump for his fox shock out back.

    I was referencing that the Giants in here who got pumps had air forks. I have an X4 as well and didn't receive a pump. When I got the X4, I was the first to open the box, so it wasn't the shop that kept it, Giant never put one in. Trek has no merit in here, 2 seperate companies.

    yeah, I am 99.9% certain that the LBS didn't take the shock pump. It just wasn't included with my Giant Anthem 29 X1... Eh well, picked one up that is probably better than the one that would have been included for ~$30. I'm not worried about it.

    2011 anthem x1, USA, no pump. Luckily i asked LBS and they dug one out for me and gave it to me for free.

    They said that Giant have stopped sending pumps with the bikes. Purchased about 6 weeks back.

    Mine came with a blue Giant branded one that looks like this. Bought the bike Saturday.



    I prefer the folding bontrager one I got with my previous bike though. It looks like this
