    What’s the warranty and customer service like?

    Seems incredibly over priced to me?

    £2400 for SX and bottom tier everything else. 😬

    Rally? Seems dirt cheap, what d’you think would be the “right” price for it?

    Nah, check out Marin if you want affordable. Rift zone 1 is less than 1700 and has deore 11 speed, and x-fusion suspension. Rift zone 2 is 2225 with deore 12 speed, marzocchi bomber z2 forks and rockshox deluxe rear shock. Proper bargains!

    Alpine Trails look awesome for the prices as well.

    Some good examples from Ads above but off the top of my head there was the Jamis Dakar with Deore and Judy’s that’s half the price (£1200) and was £700 last year.

    The Sonder Cortex/Evol are ~£1800 for the  SX model and the Stance RRP gets you NX with Decent rockshox, etc.

    Even a Stumpjumper alloy with SX is £2100 at RRP.

    The top of the line Boardman with a Pike & SLX is a couple of hundred cheaper.

    Next to those models above it doesn’t look great VFM.

    I would assume the shock is in fact 50mm stroke but with a lump of plastic clipped onto the shaft to limit the travel, would be interesting to check and see if the frame will work with it (might be the flex stays that are the limiting factor there).

    Interesting how bikes are getting 10mm more travel every 2 or 3 years. My first MTB was a 2016 Giant Stance that I got second hand and it was 27.5 with 120mm on either end…then they went to 130mm a couple years ago and now it’s a regular old trail bike.

    Does Giant have a “downcountry” style offering in the works? Anthem Evo or something?
