This trail bike sits at the top of Giant's range of Trance mountain bikes. More carbon than the regular Trance means it's extra light, easy to pedal uphill, and is super playful on the downhill. More travel than the regular Trance means your riding stays smooth even when the trail isn't, making it an ideal trail bike for Squamish or the North Shore. 27.5" wheels are perfect if you want to keep weight down and ensure maximum maneuverability.

I'm selling the bike because I bought a new one that's size large and fits me better. I loved the medium as it was so light, but my back was starting to hurt and the folks at the shop suggested I try a large instead.

The suspension (front and rear) was just serviced by Tantalus Bike Shop and I haven't ridden the bike since. The tires are also almost brand new (I think they've been on three or four rides).

The seatpost is due for servicing, but I opted not to do this myself as I'm not sure whether the buyer will want to use it. The seatpost is quite long and won't go down far enough for some riders. It worked well for me, but I'm about 5'10". If your legs are shorter than mine you'll want to try a different seatpost. If this seatpost works for you, you can get it serviced at Fluid Function in Squamish (or any other RockShox service center). Costs about $100.
