    Trance X 29 - What's considered a good deal?
    New model, new model year and a company with a reputation for bang-for-the-buck. I'm really close to getting an X1 and I'd like to know if any TX29 owners got a solid deal on theirs. I've visited many Giant dealers where I live, just sniffing around and got varying degrees of offers.

    What deals have you reached that you consider pretty good?

    Did that include tax? I'm seeing TX29s for that price as well, but it doesn't include tax. Hate paying 'the man'.

    My local shop has the X1 for $2399 and the X2 for $1699 pre-tax. Seem like pretty good prices.

    Kills me that I can't demo the bike anywhere locally, really torn between an Anthem X 29er and this as my next bike, among a few other options.

    That's right about what everyone else is paying here post-tax so that sounds about right. I paid $2600 OTD and just wanted a fair deal.

    Just ordered an x2 for $1850 plus tax. Guy wouldnt go lower. Got a $50 less quote from an out of the way shop though. Just got a great deal online for XT brakes so I'm not so sour now. If I can source a shadow plus rear shifter set for a good deal I'll be content for now.

    My buddy just got the x0 for $2100... it was thru a 'pro deal', I helped him unbox it and put it together. It's a sic bike! It made my Anthem X29er 0 feel old

    Rode it once then put on reverb dropper post, wider bars, shorter stem, and set up tubeless.... the ultimate ride!!! #jealous

    $2100 is a crazy deal for an X0. Wow.

    I have ordered an X0. They said November, then end of December, then last week. Now maybe January. It's killing me. My current ride has no suspension 38 lbs and is a wonderful tank.

    Price is $3,075 before tax.

    What extra bits come with the X0? Rim tape, tubeless valves???

    BS or not. TOS? Please hop off that high horse.. Even if it were that serious, he didn't mention the shop or his buddy by name for that matter.

    The rim tape was already on the rim, it's basically that DT Swiss kit, and the valves came in a plastic ziploc. Was a breeze. Couldn't believe how nice of a fit the rim/tires were. The tire beads fell into the rim with one hand.

    Ok, you're right...:) (btw, ToS - terms of service, usual etiquette, etc.)

    I know what TOS means - that's why I said he didn't include any details to be in violation.. Etiquette is a stretch in a thread about pricing though. Most forums outlaw price talk in the interest of their [online vendors] sponsors. For bike companies like giant that strictly support LBS, that goes out the window and doesn't have much impact either way. It is what it is.

    Now, bragging industry employees is a different story.

    Different wheels, drive train, hubs, Giant Contact cockpit (vs Giant Connect SL on the X1)...lotsa things. The wheels on the 0 are WheelSystem wheels, unlike the X1. Pick up a 2013 catalog at your lbs and you'll see what I mean.

    My LBS has the X1 for $2600 pre-tax but offered to price match. Could you please PM me the info on the shops where you're getting lower? Thanks!

    I was quoted $2600 for an X1. I asked if they have any "spring sales" or anything, and of course not. Haven't looked anywhere else.

    When I started querying an X1 in late November, a lbs told me 2 weeks delivery. I finally pulled the trigger on the X1 in mid-December and it took 3 weeks to show up. My lbs said that, as far as MTBs go, the Trance X29 was flying off the shelves for the Giant line. Now the X0 is out 'til May? Wow...Giant obviously hit a home-run with this bike.

    I'm currently considering an X0 and looking for dealers myself. It would go great with my Reign X0 but the dealer I bought that from stopped carrying Giant and I moved away from them anyways...

    If you go to the Giant website they have a Store Finder at the top that tells you the closest dealers in your area.


    This is how I found my deal.

    I bought two bikes at the same times. One for my gf and myself. X2 was 1850 otd. X1 was 2550 out the door. Got some accessories for 25 percent off also.
