    Picked up my first full suspension bike. Very entry level but I’m excited to get away from my hard tail.

    Yeah I did a quick test run up the driveway, it’s a slope, and then down the flat road. Couldn’t tell much difference on the driveway but on the flat road I could feel the shape...as weird as that sounds.

    So, why the wolf tooth pliers and not the park tool master link pliers for half price?

    Because it stores several masterlinks internally, and is small enough to bring with you in a pack to do chain repairs on the trail. I think Im 50/50 in number of trail fixes vs garage chain fits/replacements.

    Yeah after I asked I actually went and looked at it. Other features that are nice, plus trail use looks very handy. Don’t wanna carry the park tool ones on the trail.

    sold.

    The newer model holds a bunch of bits too, so it may even be able to replace a multitool. But i already have one i like so i just rubberbanded it together and works great

    I’m selling my trance 2 here in a few weeks as I’m moving to a more aggressive bike. Overall zero complaints with mine though. My riding style has changed / I found out what my ride style is.

    Yeah I really wanted the trance but settled with the stance as I haven’t been able to find a trance anywhere near me for over 8 months now. This one popped up at the giant shop like a mile away from me so I jumped on it. I’m gonna ride this for 2-3 years and then spend some money on a really nice one hopefully.

    Oh interesting, from photos they look nearly Identical at a glance. Unfortunate that I'm waiting until after AZ prime ride season to sell mine, otherwise we could have worked something out. Giant warranty is pretty simple as far as headaches for you, however your bike shop might not have a blast. Right now I'm waiting on the Maestro linkage piece to be sent. The bearings exploded and the bolt holding shock in up top started to de thread, and at an angle dug into the frame piece and cracked it. This all happened within one ride after getting my shock back from a full rebuild...

    But for you and I, Giant warranty is a breeze. The bike shop guy said he's been having headaches getting ahold of reps and finding parts. Enjoy the bike

    Rode the slash 8 today, it’s a great bike.
    Trek did well on the new frame, it didn’t feel uncomfortable at all.

    Now to get my brother on it and we can switch back and forth and better compare between the Firebird.

    Also, any bike I buy from here out will get AXS. I’ll just move it bike to bike, didn’t realize how spoiled I am by it. Also ability of adjusting bite points on RSC vs regular R’s.

    Both bikes same components is what I wish I could test.
