Giant Anthem 2

Bought my Anthem2 two months ago.

Love it!

Could not afford Anthem1 because Mrs Mountain lion also wanted one, so had to buy two Anthem2s... Frame is exactly the same on all the Anthems and components can be upgraded over time.

 

The Anthem climbs well, is responsive on single track and flies down hill.

 

It takes a bit of time getting used to it when upgrading from hard tail and you need to play with the shock setting to get it set up right for you.

 

Note that it is a responsive bike, which means that it also tends to amplify pilot errors (like mrs mountain_lion found out on her first ride... Ouch).

 

It only has 3.5" travel, so is not a big hit play bike, but if you want a mean XC machine - get the anthem.

 

Read a comment somewhere (can't find it now, but think it was by a Cape Epic rider) describing the Anthem as a short wheel base land rover.

Now that I have one too, I understand what he meant! Big%20smile

Mountain Lion, thanks for the feedback, this is still in line with what I have read about this dream machine...
