Hey, i had heaps of trouble getting my pic up. This is my Australian 2006 XtC3. All stock, except for WTB Velociraptor tyres, cateye wireless computer and i cut down the massive handle bars, bloody hell they were huge!
I sold the frame a few weeks ago - but here is my XTC2 in 3 different forms...
Got mine a week ago here in Tuscaloosa, AL. Loving it! :thumbsup:
Here's my Rainier. Pic was the day after I got it about 6 weeks ago. It's a bit dirtier now, and missing the reflectors. Great bike!
I really like the look of the Rainier TnGreg:thumbsup: :thumbsup: ! Nice cross between a Reign and a dirtjump bike :D !
I had one, but it broke. :(

if someone will fill me in on posting pics i will post some pics of my giant hardtail
possible sticky material here ???????
Here's my '07 Talon before it got all the mud and gravel all over it:
It's too much effort to keep clean :( I know I'm gonna regret it, but meh. I only want this one to last me 2-3 years. By that time I'll look at a 2010 XTC or equivelant.
I previously had a Jamis Dakota...........But I love this XTC...
Wot??? NO STP's! Cmon guys...

Sorry no pics. I don't normally post on the Giant Forum, but I have always liked the XTC hardtail. I think the marketing geek who decided to discontinue the XTC line in the USA is an idiot. I just cannot warm up to the new hardtail design. I guess others didn't either since it looks like Giant redesigned its USA hardtails again for 2007. Just bring back the XTC lineup to the US, just as they have it in Europe, Australia, Asia, etc. Sorry for the thread jack.

Your XTC is Fantastic! Awesome looking ride!
I second that Dantastic! great setup! love the wheelsets! wish i had one.
edm747 - i think an STP or a Boulder frame would be better for the fork and 8 inch rotors you got up front. the XtC is a race/XC frame not a DJ/DH frame. just my .02

Oh btw, the 8" rotor stays, even for XCR duties. I'd gladly sacrifice a little more weight just to have the better feel and brake modulation I wanted, that the bigger rotor gives. But that's just me, thinking out loud. :D

I have nickel and dimed the updates to component's over the last decade. The last big updates were done in 98. I really want to do a new fork and headset, but I have yet to find the right price with moderate travel. The old Manitou still functions pretty well. I may also experiment with a rigid fork I have in my parts bin.
I have a few more pics of it here:
Oh, I almost forgot, specs:
Manitou Mach 5 SX with speed springs
Mavic x517 rims, dt db spokes, xt hubs
lx cranks with rock ring bash guard
sachs front, shimano lx rear, derailleurs
sachs twist shifters with ride-on cables
2.1 ground control front, 1.9 wildgripper rear tires
azonic orz stem
scott vertigo bars
Giant MCMU carbon composite HT
Just thought Iíd add some pics to this thread. (hopefully they are attached)
I bought this bike in Feb this year, I wanted a xtc c3 but it was too expensive for me at the time. The bloke in the shop had this for nearly half price. :)
I ride it to work every day (about 3 miles) and Iím still looking for some good trails to ride it on. It's still got the kit that was on it when I bought it but Iím looking to upgrade soon.
I'm thinking of swapping the Rockshox Judys for some Rockshox Reba Race but i don't know if they can mount v-brakes (any advice would be nice).
21.5 inch Giant mcmu frame
Shimano deore lx v-brakes and gear set.
Crane creak headset
Shimano Deore (HB M570 VIAM) wheels
FSA Alpha drive crank
Although I've been riding bike since i was 5 this is my first serious bike, I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to mountain biking but Iím learning fast.
I will eventually be getting a FS bike (probably a Reign or Trance) as they are dirt cheap over here.
Any advice about upgrades for this bike (my HT), links to a proper spec sheet (can't find one on the net, or any advice about mountain biking in Taiwan would also be appreciated. :thumbsup:
My 04' Iguana. Only stock item is the frame!!
Hope Mono Mini front & rear
Hope floating rotors
Deore LX cranks
XT front & rear mechs
Easton EA50 bar & stem
RS Reba SL U Turn shock
Okay, here are my terrible twins. I usually have a smile on my face with either of these between my legs. ;) :D
Both bikes have gone through a number of builds. I have had the XTC for many years, and is mainly used for general trail riding / endurance racing. Iíve just finished a fresh component build, but there are still a few bits and pieces I need to finish her off. She still needs Fork / Seatpost / Pedals and that will probably be the last time I build this frame up I think. Itís been a great bike. :thumbsup:
The STP was purchased to learn to dirt jump and ride trials on, but it spent over a year setup with clipless pedals and a 32 by 16 gear ratio to be used as a general trail bike. Its way too small, but as a result itís incredibly easy to throw around and is an absolute hoot to ride. Iíve done everything from urban drops and street riding to long trail rides, 12 hour endurance races and long road miles on this bike. :D
