First Ride: 2019 Giant Trance 29
Rented a new ali Trance 2 for a day in the Italian mountains. Extremely rough natural rocky and steep in places, bike felt composed and stable and I just geled with it straight away. It wasn't mega poppy and playful but it was very good and didn't feel out of it's depth. Climbed well too. Feel that Giant get a unjustified hard time on here. Well made, light, fairly simple bikes at a decent price. Isn't that what many PB commenters are asking for after the latest review of a £6000 super bike?

@friendlyfoe: Totally agree, I had a 2014 Trance too. Crazy light, and also really tidy joins. Had 2 separate people assume it was the carbon model. Lots of other much more expensive brands look like they were welded together by a drunk horse in a garage by comparison.

Review: Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt Carbon 70
@betsie: yep. This is a great review. Just because the reviewer didn't gel with the bike doesn't mean somebody else won't love it. The end of all reviews being "climbs like a mountain goat, descends like a scalded cat" cannot come soon enough. Keep judging bikes harshly. There's a lot of choice out there, and these things aren't cheap. No company should be able to get away with dropping the ball.

Interview: DVO's First Season With the Giant DH Team
Overall speed is much higher than average people, and also they only care about speed, comfort is not so relevant.

Review: X-Fusion Trace 36 HLR Fork
I have a Metric set at 160mm. Best single crown fork I've used. Agree second hand they are a bargain, seen a couple for £350. Had a Pike before and the Metric is much better. And the Pike broke. Metric is heavier but it's totally worth the pay off. Only issue I had was I cracked the pinch bolt. Was replaced under warranty easily. Not really sure how it happened as I'm almost certain I never over tightened. Maybe a crash or just bad luck, as couldn't see a single other example of it happening online.
