giant anthem sizing advice required
I am 5ft7" and rode a medium (18") Anthem around the streets by a shop I am buying it from at the weekend. Medium was spot on for me, and I had the seatpost reasonably far up, so you should be okay with a medium too I would reckon.
I should mention though that I like quite a high seatpost and a reasonably stretched out position, as I use it for racing.Posted 7 years ago
2011 Anthems are on the Giant Australia website, and will probably be the same spec in the UK. Comes with 3 x 10 drivetrain, which doesn't bother me (I'd rather have 3×9 or 2×10) and some other minor changes. The colour of the X2 is hideous to my eyes though, so I prefer the 2010 model. I've picked mine up for £1600 (the bike shop sponsors the XC series I race in, so all racers get 20% off).
Dales Cycles in Glasgow have only a Demo bike left in medium which they are doing for £1500. I am riding it next week, but they are looking to sell it after that I believe, and I'm told it'll be in great condition.
I also think that Giant have them at £1600 in their own stores, although I'm not near a Giant store, so can't confirm that. At lot of other stores seem to be low on stock.Posted 7 years ago
ta for the info. I was looking at an x3 for £1350 online but think that they only have it in small.
found pics of the 2011 range and its not encouraging me to wait until next year (yes i am a tart and i don't like their colour schemes).

5-10 and a medium anthem (thomson layback post and 100mm stem). I'd say you'll def. need a small, but then I can't believe some of the guys on here are riding mediums which to me seem like they must be massive for them! Looks like you'll need to try one out as it obviously comes down to how it feels for you.Posted 7 years ago

i think i will try a small frame first (although i have a medium superlight and a 17" kona); although i tend to prefer a stretched riding position i am a '90s old skool flat bars + long stem person – which will no doubt shag up the best designed handling features!
time to visit the malvern showroom
