Previous years model reviewed by BikeRadar - here

Reviewed at £1849 and got 4.5/5

The Giant Anthem 27.5 is a very capable cross-country/trail bike with … The Giant Anthem 27.5 is a very capable cross-country/trail bike with 100mm of travel and, as the name suggests, 27.5in (650b) wheels. The Anthem 27.5 2 is the middle model of the three-bike Anthem 27.5 lineup. This model is a superb bike at a strong price.Compared to the base model in the range, the 3, it has better suspension and brakes, a higher-spec drivetrain and is lighter.

-17 deg (11 mins after posting) ... I'm guessing this is from the same crowd who voted the £50 Tesco BSO hot?
Any bike over £100 will always go cold in the first hour or so, then pick up heat when people with a bit of sense come along.. Give it time.

Don't get needy over it, heat means nothing and gets you nothing. Basically, this is an expensive bike, even if it had £1k off of it, it would still get cold votes as people will say that you can get the same thing from Decathlon (_;)

Just take pride in the fact that you bothered to share, its appreciated, would love a bike like this but I just can't justify it to myself. KEEP POSTING!!!

Fair post, but certainly not needy ... more frustrated
nice bike, hot
Great bike, used to have the 26" version. Same price, but available in all sizes, from Paul's Cycles: paulscycles.co.uk/m1b…015
Cracking bike!

Exactly why I stopped posting
I race an anthem 3 which is one model down from this and it is an awesome bike I have competed in about 15 events since buying it this time last year and its stood up to loads of abuse.These are great all round XC or trail centre bikes.
Nice bike

Same here, for quite a while - I used to be a regular poster, but got bored of the abuse and silly voting.

I still do not understand why people who are not in the market for a bike like this still vote cold just because it is more expensive than the scrap iron from Tesco's ... it isn't the same thing at all. Try taking the BSO onto a red/black route ... see how that works out for you!

If it isn't for you, then jog on ... but no need to vote cold unless you can name a similar specced bike for less. All you are doing is hiding the bike from going hot and maybe getting the attention of someone who is in the market for a bike like this.

I really wouldn't recommend a bike like this for tootling to the pub on, but for people who go to trail centres or off-roading then it is a great bike at a great price.

Strange site!

Yep, cant fault any of that!!! Same with anything else, people who aren't in the market for the item, still click just to slate it..... ridiculous really!! But whatever, this is a nice bike at a good price, you did your bit

Minus 1 laughing out loud.. Clueless hukd as always,

I put in a request with admin to setup a new category for cycling/outdoor/sporting goods, if items like this have a unique section, then cold voters may avoid voting and true deals will stand out..
Worth adding some commentary to get the views across
