Theres a review.
why no giants
I think people forget how old the NRS is, and that its a race bike first and foremost. I loved mine.
The Trance was a bit of a grounbreaker, its Maestro set new levels.
Had them all, but I've always had XTCs in frame only option. Riding an XTC makes you wonder how bikes like the ARC sell.
I used to have a Reign, really do not have a bad word to say about it - I also had a Glory...........that was blummin' heavy!!
In general, Giants are great bikes IMO
Still miss my Anthem and Reign sometimes. Trance was a great bike too in its way.
There's a lot of talk about the Maestro suspension (and it is good), but it's the light weight of their newer frames that is really impressive. They make it very easy to build a decently light bike for not a huge amount of money.
I believe the Reign now has a slacker HA and shorter HT than my old '08 frame, so I may yet be tempted back.
I think the NRS is the worst bike I've ever ridden though, bar none.
really? I loved mine. i wish i had been able to keep it
would love an anthem 29er.
Yeah, think it was very much a personal thing though.
You're all talking about them like they're hard done by- Giant is the biggest bike manufacturer in the world! They make over 5 million bikes a year. There must be something going for them!
Abigale is on her second Reign, when she outgrew the first one she asked for tne next size up
I love my reign. It's not fancy, doesn't stand out, but goes up, down and across very well indeed.
I used to swap frames every 6-12 months before getting it, had it for getting on 4 years now!
I had an 06 reign, Great downhill not so great uphill, After that I went back to a hardtail and got myself an 07 xtc alliance and haven't looked back,
Brilliant bike love It and wouldn't swap It till It dies.
Still loving my XTC
I know of three xtc'c which are well loved and still giving good rides..
