 I rode several bikes before buying this. Coming from a 6' 5" person, the geometry on this frame is perfect for me. The maestro suspension design is really well thought out. The trails in my area are very diverse. Lots of rock gardens, rooty ledges, drop-offs, etc. Hardpack dirt, rock, and loose sand. This bike eats it all up and asks for more.
If I had to be super picky I'd complain about the brakes. But almost every bike in this price range has the elixir 5's. Not horrible, just not exactly the feel I'm wanting.
I paid just over 2k for it and have not had a single regret. I'd buy another Giant product in a heartbeat.

Giant 2011 Trance X2 (MSRP $2800) — It’s the lightest aluminum 5-inch travel trail bike ever produced by Giant. The all-new Trance X starts with a radically shaped ALUXX SL aluminum frame featuring trail-tuned geometry and a tapered OverDrive headtube for increased stiffness and steering precision. And it finishes with lightweight, co-pivot Maestro Suspension to help you roll through technical terrain, blitz descents and devour steep climbs.
