    Here's my 2006 Giant Yukon. Got her in 2012, stock. Then I picked up riding again and started upgrading. I'm not sure the model years of my particular frame design, but I know they stopped doing that triple-triangle-type thing (using a small piece of tubing, the top tube and seat post) after 2006. I feel it kind of makes it unique, although there's probably some other Giant frame designs that have used that particular setup. And I think the Yukon was the bottom of their mountain layout for a while, although she serves her purpose very well even 8 years later.

    First picture is in my friends garage the day (actually night) that I bought her from him. Second one is in my garage, taken this afternoon.

    I now have this 1995 Rincon.
    This is how it cleaned up - very good shape for a 20 year old bike.
    Grips, tires, saddle and shifters and pedals will be the first to go.
    Wider bars are needed especially since I want to add horns.
    Would upgrade the brake levers if I come across some STX or LX.
    Might do the quill upgrade, and switch to V brakes. Might.
    Would love to upgrade the hubs to take a 9 speed cassette,
    but that would be way way later.
    It rides fine now.

    Looks like it's in good shape.

    I have a 1996/1997 Yukon in the same colour scheme and similar spec (although I did make the switch to V brakes).

    Steel is real!

    Rides great, just looking for a better set of wheels than the current P-XCR2's.

    I'd recommend looking at one of the wheelsets from American Classic. A lot of wheel for the price and it compliments the frame nicely.

    Nice bike to start with....
    Loose the reflectors before they fall off without you noticing and someone else runs over and cuts their tire....
    My Giant was never intended for the trails so I left the reflectors on.
    But now it belongs to someone else.

    Terrago 2007

    This is my ht and only bike, a Giant Terrago from 2007. I've had a lot of fun on it through the years and it has evolved as my riding progressed.

    It came stock with a Rock Shox Judy 2 coil fork, Hayes Sole brakes, Deore/LX drivetrain and a cushy WTB saddle. At the time it was a pretty good spec for the money and pretty spot on for the total begginner I was then (minus the brakes, they were actually crap).

    I keep saying that I'll replace it with something with modern geo, but the truth is that I enjoy it too much to upgrade, plus the budget nevers seems to materialize. Therefore I keep riding it and having tons of fun.

    My riding style is what I call "playfull XC" and the components reflect that. Nothing flashy, just workhorse stuff. This is how it looks now.

    Crankset: Truvativ isoflow, 22-32-Bash

    I think you're the only other person I have seen run the same tires as me. I thought I was weird for running a Captain on the front and a Fast Trak on the rear. The Fast Trak has seemed to wear down faster but probably because it didn't have that large of tread blocks to begin with. The Captain, on the other hand, still has plenty of tread left and I find myself inflating the front tire more than the rear because of how squishy the tread is.

    Not weird at all, I find it a great, fast combo for XC/trail application in the appropriate terrain. Certainly not the best for wet roots and rocks.
    The Captain doesn't seem to wear down at all as a front, the FT seems to have worn a fair bit in about 8 months but it has very low knobs as new anyway. Still perfectly usable.

    Both are the cheaper "sport" versions by the way. I ride to the trails and sometimes there are long sections of road between one trail and the next. The FT is very fast and completely silent on the road.

    For winter conditions I' ll move the captain to the rear and put a Butcher on the front.

    Looks flashy enough....
    Besides, if you enjoy riding it, that's what matters most.
    I'd keep trying to upgrade parts if I were you.
    Nothing wrong with that.........

    Τhanks for the compliment! Truth is I really enjoy it, as every component that I felt was holding me back is now replaced.

    Next maybe a new crankset, I have an itch for 170mm SLX or XT cranks, as the stock Truvativ is unnecessarily heavy and the bottom bracket has a short lifespan.
