Very average components. You'll need to spend a further grand on it to …Very average components. You'll need to spend a further grand on it to make it half decent. Trance 2 is the start of the range with decent bits.


Hmmmm...... I'm not sure I understand your pointless statement.
For £1k...it's a good bike in the price range. However its not trying to be a £2k bike.

Heat from me.

It's under a grand, tell me any bike under a grand were it isn't crying out for an upgrade,
If you want a better spec the trance 2 is heavily reduced too (as is trance 1 and 1 advance)
For £1548 you get Shimano SLX m7000 11 speed drivetrain fox float 34s deore brakes and a giant dropper post

Amended, current seasons bike, unless they've announced new 2018 model, always seems a popular bike, never been a fan or known much of giant but to one of the big USA companies

not the best spec but 148 boost rear axle & only a 9 speed cassette suggests its crying out for better upgrades

It's not 'pointless' bud, it's my opinion.
The components are incredibly average (it's got bloody Suntour forks ffs, not to mention a crap cassette, and bottom of the range brakes & shifters). Maybe a grand was overcooking it, but for £500, you could bang a Dropper and give it a full SLX groupset (brakes and a 1x11) to make it much better. Or just buy the Trance 2 which is about £500 more plus has much better front and rear shocks.
Cheaper here and its got a bell

Only joking looks nice bike for under £1000 (Trance not tesco value one )

Cool... can you tell me where I can get the Trance 2 for £949

Cheers!
For the money this is decent! Voted hot! I'd want to upgrade that drive train, but for the money you can't go wrong. If my budget for a new bike was a grand this would be it!

Precisely it's a grand, personally the trance 2 at £1549 looks far better value, but if your budget is set at a grand then this is a great bike,
the components are always upgradeabke in the future

Most on here (me included) would never do enough to warrant the need for the upgrades you see as essential. As such, people will poo-poo your comment as being elitist when in reality, you're probably just trying to be helpful?

Yes I was. But hey, shot down in flames.
I'd personally find the extra £500 that they're selling the Trance 2 for (maybe even use their 0% deal).
Does it have tubeless tires like the 2018

Very fewbikes come with better quality tyres at this price point, performance and wired indicate bottom of schwalbe range , can always get performance tyres tubeless
