    My LBS doesn't have a timeframe for me so I'm going with you guy's timeframe. Hopefully in a week or 2.

    Great bike, ugliest saddle design I've seen. Did Giant hire a 3rd grader to draw the designs? I'd still buy the Trance 29x though.

    Sold my Anthem X4 29er to get a Trance X 29er. Quick question for those that own them. Those of you that have all your cables running internally...did your LBS bleed and route the rear brake for free, or did you take on the task yourself?

    FWIW - My bike came with everything routed internally by the LBS.

    And, yes, the seat is the only thing I don't like about this bike. Not only is it hard in all the wrong places (you know what I mean ...), but after only two weeks, the color is rubbing off. I'm looking at a WTB Deep-V.

    One thing giants always been poor at was making a saddle IMO. Its the very first thing I replace! WTB FTW

    WTB Silverado for me. Unfortunately our shop charges to internally route the rear brake. Personally, I think it's BS. Anyone spending $2k - $4300 should get the cables run the way they should've been from the manufacturer.

    Called the LBS to see when the box would arrive and find out they had just finished building it!
    28 lbs 15 oz. stock with my Time pedals. Hate the bar! Already swapped it. Will prob remove the dropper for a carbon post I have. Gonna enjoy dialing it in. Can tell I will LOVE the XT brakes. The saddle is a freakin joke. swapped for WTB Pure. I think I can get it to 27ish with my endurance wheels (Arch EX with Ikon/RR tubeless), carbon post. Use the dropper and Nobby Nics for my Northern travels. Crappy cell pics for now.

    I was/am not that impressed with Fox's suspension and shocks. Odd coming from someone who has ridden all Fox their whole life. It always feels like there is too much sag. Getting replacement parts is like pulling teeth. If I were given a X0 or X1, I would swap all Fox out for Rock Shox instead.

    I prefer the Shimano brakes over Avid too.

    Just posted in the intro thread, cross posting pics here.
    Grips changed to lizard skin chargers but with the locks changed to the ODI anodised blue.
    Jet black anodised blue seat clamp - I broke the bolt on the giant one due to over tightening. This gave me an excuse to get a torque wrench
    XT 785 trail pedals.
