Mine in its current trim, great fun to ride. Bomber Z2 is a big improvement over the original Recon.


Next upgrade will be some decent brakes! It has basic Shimano 2-pots which are pretty weak and wooden feeling, especially compared to Code RSC on the other bike...

I'm not sure whether to try just better rotors (it has the 'resin pads only' ones) and better pads for a cheap improvement and see how that feels, or go the whole hog and and spend up on a new brake set.

Longer term... it doesn't need any changes to be fun because it puts a big silly grin on my face already, but it would be interesting to find out how it feels with a lighter wheelset. The front wheel alone (subtracting nominal tyre weight) is about 250g heavier than the Giant oem wheels on my other bikes!
