They Like My Bike
The Giant Trance X 0 Maestro suspension mountain bike has been awarded "2008 Best of Adventure Gear" by the editors of National Geographic ADVENTURE magazine. The Dec. 2007/Jan. 2008 year-end double issue spotlights the hottest "must-have" gear for the outdoor fanatic. The Trance X 0 is the only mountain bike the editors chose to feature and here's what they say about it: "Dual link design frames are the buzz in full-suspension mountain bikes; they use engineering sleights of hand to trick moving parts into being more efficient rather than less. The Giant Trance XO is the Penn & Teller of the dirt world. Though the company has been using its own version of DLD, called Maestro, in other rides, the Trance is lighter, stiffer, and stronger. And with five inches of travel, the frame is better at taking bumps. Also, it's decorated with a host of Gucci parts, from Fox front and rear shocks to Avid Juicy 7 disk brakes and a sweet Mavic wheel-set."
