Giant Trance Full Suspension

So I have decided what bike I am eventually going to upgrade to.

After visiting Ridley’s Cycle in Kensington I have fallen in love with the Giant Trance 2. The one above is going to be the 2018 version, which is the one I am going to start saving for. I can’t wait to get it fitted just for me, fully adjusted and ready to roll.

The list below are the highlights from a stellar equipment setup versus the cost.

  • 150mm front and 140mm rear travel suspension
  • 1×11 Shimano SLX drivetrain
  •  Giant Connect seat dropper post (can’t wait to use that!).
  • Internally routed cables which look great and add lifespan
  • Maxxis High Roller II tubeless tires, which are great all around trail tires
  • 180mm Shimano SLX disc brakes both front and rear

The only thing I will need to do is get some pedals for it.

I can’t wait to convert to a full suspension bike. After riding Bragg Creek I now know that my current bike is not up to snuff there, and this one will make those trails seem easy and much safer.

I can’t wait to pick this bike up in the new year…
