Okay,llandegla today what can I say.........Lots of expletives. The bike flew up 3 mile climb and I set PR's on most climbs this bike really can climb as good as they said in the reviews. rocks what rocks these are dispatched so easily I was running over them on the climbs and it was as if I was on smooth road. Down hill, WOW this bike comes in at a completely different league.Really words lost me today,just loads of swear words and a huge smile. This was the first ride to dial in on the bike and I am immensely happy. Fast capable bike now needs a capable rider Smile

Okay took bike in for 6 week service, told them not happy it lasted 3 rides they are contacting giant to see if they fix it under warranty. Poor show really. Let's hope they redeem theirselves and allow me to have faith in them again. Come on giant you can do it!

Gone tubeless also, now to get used to this setup should be very hard on the climbs 34 t front and 38 rear. Bike weighed in at 32.16lbs after all these mods it now weighs a incredible 29.03lbs can't wait to get this bike out on the trail this weekend Smile also note the kmc black link chain on the hope chain ring. Looks boss Cool
