Wow, Giant did me right. I had a frame failure on my old bike, and I got to upgrade to the new Trance Advanced fercheep. It’s a 4" travel full-suspension mountain bike that feels like it has bottomless travel, but climbs like a road bike. Giant’s Maestro suspension flat-out "works." It keeps the rear wheel planted over climbing obstacles, and doesn’t need a fancy shock to overcome pedal-induced bob. I added Ergon grips and my favorite saddle (WTB Laser V), and I’m good for flat’n fast Town Run, or rock-strewn Brown County State Park. Love it!!!
