Is it just me, or did Giant just up the price in America for the X 2 from 3000 to 3200?

They did, some other aluminum models like the Reign 29 went up by $200 also. I think its likely a tariff adjustment.

Glad I got my X 2 before.

I thought it was my seat squeaking but actually needed to crank my seat post itself more than normal. That fixed it

Anybody on an X 2 run into issues with the stock KMC chain on the Shimano SLX drivetrain?

LBS gave it the first free tune-up last week and the first ride after the low gears were extremely noisy and shifting sucked. Thought it must have been a mistake in the tuning so took it back to the shop. The mechanics ran through everything but couldn't get the noise and chatter to go away, we were all stumped. Even checked hanger alignment which was fine. In the stand it ran through the gears perfectly fine but once on the bike and pedaling the noise returned.

Finally tried slapping on a Shimano XT chain with hyperglide+ and it runs flawlessly and silent now both in the stand and when riding.

It was just strange that it got along fine with the KMC chain before the first tune-up and only ran into issues after.
