Well at the time of this posting there’s blustery snow falling but we know that spring is right around the corner so we’re pushing ahead with some summer bike features, like the Giant Trance Advanced 1 27.5 pictured here.
This is arguably the best deal in longer rear travel bikes available to us. $5000 plus taxes is certainly still a chunk of money but in return you get a carbon front frame, carbon rims (!), and an XT 1×11 drivetrain, among many other highlights.
Giant’s maestro frame geometry and rear linkage set-up consistently gets rave reviews, even more so now that it’s specifically designed around the 27.5 wheelset.
We have a medium sized Trance Advanced 1 built up and ready to swing a leg over anytime you’re ready.
