    Giant Anthem X3 2014 - Buy used

    Hi, I am new in this forum so I want the opinion from others members, Im from Brazil, so actually I found Giant Anthem 2014 X3 used with some upgrades.

    I want to know if its a good setup

    It comes with

    Frame with no upgrades
    Rock Shox Sid XX with Lock
    XTR rapid fire
    Cranck Set XT
    Rear and Front deraulier XT
    Wheel very basic
    Shimano hydraulic brake basic

    Its a good setup?

    And what can I use from my other bike? I have a Scott Scale 710 with

    Magura TS8
    My wheels are Ryde Edge Mc1 with Dt Swiss Revolution Spokes and Dt Swiss 240s Hubs.
    SLX brake

    Whats the best Rock Shox XX or Magura TS8?

    That bikes definitely been upgraded the fork isn't stock, nor is any part of the drivetrain the question more is how much they asking and what kinda shape is it in. Should also inquire on the suspension service history if neathiers been serviced nor the bushings in the 3 years since that model hit the shops then they may be very questionable and you might be getting in even deeper. Otherwise that's a very nice setup as is and from what I could tell not that you gave us really any details yes everything you got should fit and work on the anthem perfectly. Without knowing the exact spacing and axle type of the wheels I couldn't give you a 100% answer. Looking at the specs the frame uses a 135x5mm integrated QR but they do note its convertible so if you dont get whatever exactly you need to convert to 142x12mm then you may be screwed on the rear unless you spend more money. Don't have a clue how much any of this costs fyi and i'm not a expert if you go for it good luck.

    Edit: oh id probably say the rockshox but then again I dont know much about magura forks there out of my price range.
