 Love the Trance 2. Nice all round mountain bike, if you're looking for a "jackknife" for MTB. This is it. My only complaint would be to have the 30mm Rims and have a tougher, or harder tire, say Minion DHF. Love the HR IIs, but front feels like she wants to wash or pull out on the harder turns and burms.
The rest, is a great group set with the Shimano SLX, love that it's the whole set. Find the FOXs work well and handled mostly what they have been pushed at.

Giant 2018 Trance 2 (MSRP $2890) — From Giant: "..a trail bike that thrives in the most challenging conditions. The frameset is engineered with a lightweight yet super strong and stiff ALUXX SL aluminum frame with updated Maestro rear suspension featuring a trunnion-mount shock and Advanced Forged Composite rocker arm. The result: 140mm of smooth, active rear travel to conquer the roughest trails. Frame geometry is designed around its 27.5 wheels, which deliver both quickness and control on rugged terrain. It also comes with a 150mm suspension fork for even more confidence, making it perfect for technical terrain."
