    That's sweet! How much does it weigh? I have just bought myself a 2008 comp zero with pretty much the same specs, except for the wheels. Mine will be XTR.

    I have been neglecting her lately. Just gave her a excellent clean and tune up and hit some drops I have never done before. The bigger one is above my head yet it isn't as scary as allot of much smaller drops around the place. No pics of the drop as I was alone. I have decided that I love a Beefy hardtail and I will not be using it for parts on a new trail bike build.

    My new girls...

    Here is my '07 Rainier that I just picked up last Thursday, it has been on layaway for a month or two...sad to see this bike leave the Giant Lineup.....

    Then there ismy 2008 Sedona. I have started adding accesories and it is my commuter/hauler bike, but it does a good job on a lot of the less aggressive trails around here too....

    Both are pretty much all stock, aside from the rack on the Sedona and that the Rainier now has the Sedona's seat and I have a new seat on the Sedona...well that and the cheesy little water bottle holder on the Sedona that is there temorarily....

    Got my girl friend an 07 rincon from the close out list, stripped it down and had the frame painted by a buddy of mine. All stock except swapped out silver housings for black and removed some other stuff.

    I wiped out my other pics when cleaning out the online photo gallery. So here's my somewhat custom '08 STP 0. If you can't half tell I like the raw Al.

    My bike at my place, I'm a lucky lady for sure to have such a beaut bike & live in such a great place.

    The pink looks great!
    Can't say I've really seen any other pink bikes I've really liked, perhaps your looks so good because it hasn't got pink grips and other accessories which others seem to do to try & keep the theme going.
    Nice work.

    Yep the bike looks great. Actually what size is it? It must be like a 15" as it looks kind of similar to the STP - nice and compact triangles.

    You know I never liked that frame design when they first came out, I was glad to buy the '07 Alias rather than the new style '08. But her bike really looks great, I think the colour scheme and frame size really work well together there.

    You'll have to post up an updated photo with the white saddle now

    It's actually a 14inch. The top tube is about 11mm longer than that of the 14inch women's Alias so I'm still tempted to get a shorter stem for her, although she doesn't look or feel stretched out on the bike at all.

    If you are planning to shorten the stem then I would hold off on trimming the bars. Because the whole wide bar phenomenon you see going on now is purely because a lot more people are using short stems - think about it, would you rather do push ups with your hands really close together or comfortably wide apart? Likewise the closer the bar is to the body the wider you would run it for better leverage & comfort (and control I suppose). From my experience it's only since I started running a 50mm stem that I found the want for wider bars (710's are now comfy, my hands always ended up over the end of the 640's).

    I have found that I like the stem around 50mm or maybe 60mm at most. It does take some getting used to the slow speed handling (harder to control) but you do get used to it, and adding wider bars to the mix kind of off sets that handling anyway. If you're not short of cash then give it a go, if she likes it that's great, if not make sure it's a stem you'd like to have on your bike! Check out the Syncros FR from Phantom Cycles

    Well here's an update of mine, I can't believe I did it, I never thought I would considering where I live is hilly. But yes, I've gone SS! I am going to put the front brake back on, it's off because I had to buy a new hose & am yet to install it. It's alright with just the rear for around here, but not for doing the DH which I plan to do a lot more of. The Alias is 9spd so I can use that for riding into town, but nah I love my STP too much.




    And my Husbands Alias again, he still has not ridden it, that's alright, I'm sure I can use it to my advantage to get some other kind of bike in a few years time, or I'll threaten to SS that too - then I know he'll never ride it. Yes the reality is probably that it's my 2nd bike, but at the moment it's just not getting any love.

    Single speed?! W00t! Go the STP!

    Cheers for the advice Pebble, much appreciated! We'll try a shorter stem for sure, and yes I'm definitely holding out on cutting up the bars 'cause I actually love the bars myself lol.

    Just got it this week. The only thing is it doesn't fit well on a bike rack - I might have to get one of those top tube adapters.

    Depends, I know that they are great sellers here in Aus because they are reputable for being a great DJ bikes and they offer unrivaled value for money.However Giant does tend to dominate the market here in downhill bikes as well, so it would be value for money factor pushing them ahead of other competitors in most cases.

    It really depends what sort of riding you'll be doing, and also your personal preferences. Compare it against a few other brands and decide for yourself.

    When I was buying I considered Norco Rampage, Transition Vagrant, Banshee Scirocco / Viento, Santacruz Chameleon etc. In the end it came down to fit / geometry, price and what I primarily wanted out of the bike.

    Someone left this Girls Giant bike for dead. I welded a bar across it and painted it black, put a trekking bar on it and converted it to a 27 speed with trigger shifters. Rides nice.

    Here is my new '08 XTC1...posted up in a separate thread but figured I'd contribute here as well.

    Swapped out the REBA fork, cranks, BB, stem/bars, and wheelset from my Anthem. The XL frame w/pedals weighs in at just over 27lbs.

    what brake setup do you have and how do you like them so far? i was thinkin of up grading to get a better feel on the trail.


    im currently waiting on a new bottom bracket and crank arms from giant they are replacing mine under warranty cause the left arm keep coming out. and i think the fork is jacked up too now. i can nearly push the fork all the way down and its on the stiffest setting now on knob, along with the stiffer springs i got from giant 2 months ago. and the pop lock doesnt hold any more as soon as i let up on the bars the fork comes right back up to the top. gotta have that checked out soon too.

    2006 Yukon just after a thorough scrub and tune up. Mostly stock except for the fork that was brought low by Hamilton Creek and replaced with a spiffy air fork, and the seat which the rails warped to Hades and back on. The fork made it a new bike.

    The back brake is dying a slow and noisy death ATM. Lurking ebay for some Juicy 7s.

    That and maybe a theft of a Trance or XTC frame

    Rear-BB5, replaced by Giant when the stock IO broke.
    Front-BB7

    I like the set-up it gets the job done really well. I'll maybe get a BB7 on the rear as well, but for now I'm happy with the current set-up.A set of BB7's goes for about 45-50/wheel so it's a good deal (read the reviews). Since those pics were taken I went clipless and love it...you should try it too. I think that this should have been my first upgrade!!!

    Well I had this...
    07 Alias upgraded & '08 STP customised


    Have since gone to this (specced STP more towards XC - Tora from Alias changed to 120mm travel, wheels etc transferred over).




    This will now be an XC / Trail bike and I'm selling off un-needed parts from the Alias (frame etc) to fund a DH bike build (Oragne 222) sorry Giant!

    Mines nothin special, stock 03 Rainier, Fire X cranks, Snafu platform pedals, Avid BB7's with AD3 levers, not sure what the wheels are, but they made up for that weight by stocking Hutchinson Mosquitoes. I dropped the Axel fork from 80-100MM. Not sure if I put it back together wrong or not, but it's ALOT stiffer. Which is good, because I weigh 225. I was having trouble bringing up the nose on climbs, so I'm hoping with the longer travel fork, and the inverted stem this will keep the nose planted.

    I broke my Alunimun 07 Boulder's Frame. Steel is real. Luckily I have an STP waiting for me in the garage.

    '08 20" XTC 2 with a few well researched upgrades:

    Tora 318 Air
    Fire XC Pros - no more pinch flats!
    Easton lo-rise bar w/ Ourys
    BBG Bashguard

    This bike took me to lots of places in the mountains I never would have seen otherwise.



    It has been very good to me but I've got my eye on either a FS XC bike or steel 29er for 2009.

    Thanks Pill, it looks good but the rear hub is really noisy... my LBS says it is normal... the clicking sound the freehub makes is just too loud for my taste.

    Hi! This is my Giant XTC1 Hybrid 2004





    Now I'm looking for a seatpost with offset that fits in a 31.7mm, I actually ride a Pazzaz 31.6mm with a home made shim from a pepsi tin, any suggestions?

    Cheers!

    kicking it old school

    first, want to thank everyone whol helped when i asked.

    i completed upgrading my 93' giant atx 770 saturday morning here is what i had and what i have now:

    pre upgrade:



    - rockshox judy xc 96' fork
    - deore xt front (95') and rear (98') derailleurs
    - gripshift x-ray 8spd shifters
    - deore lx (93') crankset w/ 44-34-24 w/ cartridge bb
    - shimano 11-30 8spd cassattes
    - ritchey logic (red) pedals (96')
    - mavic 217 custom built wheels with deore xt parallax hubs (98')
    - panaracer xc fire (red - japan) tires (02')
    - avid 2.0 speed dial brake levers (98')
    - doere xt v-brakes (98')
    - generic seatpost, handlebar, and bar ends (93')
    - dia compe kontak aheadset
    - controltech stem



    post upgrade:



    - rockshox tora race
    - deore xt front (08') and rear (98') derailleurs
    - gripshift attack 9spd shifters
    - deore hollowtech crankset 44-32-22 w/ external bb
    - sram 970 11-32 9spd cassattes
    - ritchey logic (red) pedals (96')
    - mavic 217 custom built wheels with deore xt parallax hubs (98')
    - panaracer xc fire (red - japan) tires (02')
    - avid 2.0 speed dial brake levers (98')
    - doere xt v-brakes (98')
    - forte handlebar
    - bontranger oversized bar ends
    - generic seatpost (going to replace this week w/ raceface evolve xc post)
    - dia compe kontak aheadset
    - controltech stem

    took it out to river legacy saturday and sunday. did 2 full laps and a mini loop saturday and 3 laps sunday. saturday was just all about getting use to it. the longer fork made the bike hande differently but after a loop and a half i was use to that. the drivetrain was just awesome. i forgot how smooth new chainrings, cassattes, chains and derailleur pulleys are. love the new attack shifters. shifts are very smooth and quick. saturdays ride was a little slow going, because the rear tire was a little on the low side and i forgot my pump. sunday was much better. was much more comfortable on the bike. still getting use to the gears (pretty big difference between a 34/30 and 32/32. i need to work on a new handlebar i think. i was getting some numbing in the hands (something that has been happening for the last year). i'm thinking more sweep could help a lot on this.

    besides replacing these parts i replaced all the ball bearings in the hubs and headset and replaced all cables. ended up dropping a bit much, but half of what a new bike with a tora fork and xt parts would have cost. all in all, it was well worth it to me.

    Somehow I have ended up with a few giant's over the years.

    1992 cadex cfm-2... in 1992. Sweet helmet huh? and yup, full rigid.



    this is a 94-ish atx 760 I use to pull the kids around. rattle canned and all




    this is my "new" giant. 05 xtc c2. Bought it used, was in fantastic shape, before I got of hold of it . Here is how it looked after the first ride, with the components it came with except seatpost and pedals.



    After switching the bars, seat blah blah. and yes the bar ends are the same ones from the first pic. 17 years old, can't get rid of em . This was after a rain ride. I will clean it and take some better pics sometime.

    There you go if at first you don't succeed get up look for major blood if none try it again. If you have major bleeding good luck I don't think ambulances can get to some of the places we ride
