Expirience with the Giant Trance 2

Giant Trance 2 Review A classic among trail bikes. The Maestro rear end feels extremely plush on the trail. The handling of this bike is balanced. So its pretty intuitive to control on singletrails. At the seating position, Giant combines the best of two worlds: It´s balanced character is a good mix of sporty efficiency and a comfortable upright postiion. The Giant Trance 2 has still a ace up its sleeve. When it goes down the hill, the absolutely coherent geometry always makes you want to come back for more. With 25 years warranty, you can not go wrong.
