Giant Trance 27.5 2 Bike 2017

Giant started in 1972 with one goal: Create a better cycling experience for people around the world. Giant has never lost sight of their goal. The founders of Giant Bicycles were craftsmen and engineers, and they loved to ride. Working to their strengths, they set out to improve cycling by following three guiding principles: craftsmanship, innovation, and inspiration. Over the past four decades, Giant has become one of the most well- known bicycle brands in the world. Giant Bicycles has won world championships as well as numerous awards online and in- print cycling magazines. Giant Bicycles makes bicycles for everyone in the family, as well as for championship road and mountain bikers, and everyone in between.

Giant Trance 27.5 2 Bike 2017

Constructed from Giant’s lightweight yet stiff ALUXX SL aluminum mainframe with 5.5 inches of smooth Maestro suspension, the Giant Trance 27.5 2 Bike 2017 is the fastest way to conquer technical trails. The use of the Shimano SLX 11-speed drivetrain with M615 hydraulic disc brakes allows you to climb and descend in whatever gear suits your style. Up front on the Trance you will find the stout Fox 34 Rhythm fork with a 15mm thru-axle and 150mm of travel. Developed with input from Giant’s champion enduro pros, the frame is engineered specifically for the Giant XC-1 27.5 wheelset. Stocked with the OverDrive steerer tube and a PowerCore bottom bracket for steering precision and pedaling stiffness, it’s an all-around trail-slayer that climbs as well as it descends. With Schwalbe Nobby Nic tubeless tires swathing the front and rear, the ride will see you smoothly through roots, rocks, and ruts. The Trance Advanced 27.5 2 is as quick as it is comfortable on technical descents, while remaining light and stable on the climbs!

2017 Giant Trance 2
This bike is very smooth. This is my first full suspension bike. I am coming from a Gary Fisher Hardtail XC bike. I am riding a medium frame and I'm 5' 10" it feels good, much more comfortable than my old xc hardtail but that's to be expected. I find it climbs better than I expected would like to see the 11-46 xt cassette on this bike though. It pedals well not much sus bob at all, If your standing there is some. Overall the suspension is great, rocks roots drops this handles all of these with ease. The only negative I have found would be pedal strikes, not sure what the bottom bracket is but I have noticed this more than my old bike. I may firm up the back to see if it makes a difference. After putting some racing ralphs going tubless and carbon bar the bike weight is 29.1lbs (xt pedals included). So far very happy with this bike inspires confidence feels great. At $2,700 it's the best spec for the price and 27.5 wheel size feels perfect. Long travel 29ers feel kinda top heavy not so with this bike. I demoed many different trek bikes and they are very good bikes but ended up picking the giant and have no regrets, better value, better looking and 27.5 focused. Great bike get one you won't regret it!!!
