    My New Used Ride!


    Bought this baby off of Ebay. It was being sold local to me and I got to see it before buying it. Frame was an 05 barely used. All other parts except for Juicy 7's (05) are brand new. I've owned a lot of bikes in my time and this one is turning out to be the best, a true all mountain bike. The only thing I added was platforms and the fenders. It's been very wet and cold here and I don't mind the cold or getting wet but not the two together!!! That makes for a real cold, unpleasant streak up your butt and back ) which ends up cutting the ride short. Giant has really designed a perfect FUN all around bike!

    Nice find, BIG fenders Actually the rear stripe doesn't bother me, or the mud flying past the DT it's the stuff flying off the front wheel (on my Trance) going on my face and glasses that gets me - pretty hard to fly anywhere when your glasses are covered w/ mud and water.
    One day your life will flash before your eyes, will it be worth watching??

    Very nice! You were lucky to find one with a Pike attached.
    Happiness is a warm 2 stroke.
