whats it like to ride ive just got the 2013 giant trance X3 ( same spec as the 2012 X4 model) which i haven't been out on yet due to not having some where safe to keep it after my last bike was stolen .

i do like the look of the Trance especially yours in black with white forks
falling off doesn't hurt....its the landing that hurts

Lol! Yes, it also gets used on family bike rides with the youngest strapped into a wee ride so a bell comes in handy.

My completely unbiased opinion is that it is brilliant, take a look at my pre buying thread for a few opinions

Looks good although I love the anthem a little more ;)
Constantly trying to upgrade my parts.It is a long road ahead as things are so expensive for little gain. n+1 is always the principle in my mind.

2013 x2 is a great spec, they even swapped all the SRAM kit to shimano.

Just fitted my new dropper post, and its now got the type 2 x9 rear mech which really helps with chain slap and chain drop. need to upgrade the tyres as they are the manufacturer supplied "performance" nobby nics, and fit my new charge spoon seat if/when it arrives. But I'm pretty damn happy with her.
