    giant warp ds-2

    I had to sell my trek 4500 to pay some bills and my roommate has offered to let me use her gian warp ds-2. It seems kinda cheesy looking and seems to have mediocre brakes. But it feels a lot lighter than the 4500. Is it worth taking out onto the trails? thanks.

    Well... if it's a US model from '04 it looks decent. The components aren't too great but I'm sure you could have fun on it.. http://www.giant-bicycles.com/us/030....asp?year=2004

    I owned one-2004 DS 2

    It's trailworthy, but it's not going to knock your socks off. It is what it is, a budget full suspension bike. It's heavy, has pedal bob, and the fork is low end. I enjoyed it while I had it, but found out quickly the limitations of that class of bike.

    yes, the Warp is worth taking on the trails. as Clyde said, it has its limitations, but it is a fun introduction to full suspension. I even did 5 foot drops on mine--and that was on a frame that was cracked (i didn't realize it was cracked).
