  • Q: how long have you ridden the bike for and why are you selling it?
  • A: the bike has a season of moderate riding on it. i did a few trips to Upper Michigan where the bike really shined. the wheels i upgraded half way through the season so they have half a season of riding on them, the bike really flourished after that upgrade those wheels are so light, stiff, wide, snappy and strong! I moved back to central wisconsin where there is a lot more gravel flat trails and i am starting to get into more gravel biking so looking to get a new cyclocross bike.

GIANT’s 2018 full suspension trail bike. I rode this bike moderately for one season, loved it. It is a do it all bike; it climbs surprisingly well with giant’s maestro suspension and shreds the decents. It is stock apart from the Ergon GE1 enduro grips, Ergon SME3 saddle, Crankbrothers Highline Remote lever, muckynutz mud fender and the much needed wheel upgrade; I went from giant’s entry level aluminum XC1 wheelset (23mm internal width) to their new 2019 top of the line aluminum trail wheelset TR1 (30mm internal width). They are wider, stiffer, lighter, more durable and have a better engagement in the rear ratchet hub. The wheels have half a season of riding on them. The bike of course has some normal riding blemishes (represented in the pictures) but everything is functional, clean and well maintained. Let me know if you have questions
