    What does DS stand for?

    What does DS stand for on the Giant Warps? The only things i could think of were dual slalom and dual suspension.(seems like both of those to me)

    Probably dual suspension, i dont think it would be dual slalom cause its not really a dual slalom bike.

    It's more of an all mountain bike but it can easily be converted to dual slalom.

    Whatever the reason...

    They're some of the coolest bikes out there. Giant even could offer a Warp above the DS1 by specing a Swinger Coil over and some Minute fork. Shouldn't it be sweet??? It could hit the stores at ~1200 considering they have the more complicated VT at a bit higher price range. I would gladly pay the 400 difference.

    Magnificent frame for the money. Hard to beat. Look at the DS1 and it's on par or above of any bike at its price range. I could still upgrade suspension components (which is expensive and would make you choose the VT3 instead) but the frame I think can take more a beating than the VT.

    What you think??

    I'd go with dual suspension.

    I'm almost positive it stands for D*&# SMOOTH. I have it from a very reliable source...

    Dual Suspension.

    The NRS used to be called the XTC DS(x) and NRS was just a sticker on a different part. But the DS is Dual Suspension and they started around the same time...
