    A new ride and a new motivation....just in time for the snow to fly.

    My buddy rides to work every day he can and his trusty Giant VT one has been his daily commuter bike. He ended up getting a newer Santa Cruz Blur and made me an offer on his VT that I absolutely could not refuse.

    Bike build

    Frame: 2004 Giant VT one
    Front Shock: Psylo (just rebuilt)
    Rear Shock: Fox Float RP2
    Stem: Big Al Titec
    Bars: Titec
    Breaks: Avid Juicy Seven
    Cranks: Raseface Turbine
    Pedals: Diamond
    Front Shifter: XT
    Rear Shifter Sram X-9
    Wheels: Mavic Crossmax XL Tubeless
    Tires: Michelin Advanced TRC Tubeless
    Post: Ritchey
    Saddle: WTB

    He had the bike fully serviced and a new cassette installed on it last week so this thing was ready to go! We rode his route to work because he had to get something from the office....what a great ride twice a day! His route takes him over this ridge and through some trails to down town.

    It was raining and snowing off and on so the bikes got a well deserved bath.

    I am one happy camper!

    I like the Giant VT bikes. They rode pretty well and you can change the travl of the rear suspension between 5" and 5-3/4". Just to be clear, you have a 2003 model. The 2004 VT1 is blue and silver (a friend of mine bought one recently) and came with a Manitou Minute fork. Looks like yours has some nice updates to the drivetrain and the original CrossMax wheelset. Nice bike, enjoy!
