Maximum bike-for-your-dollar is the plan for Giant's Stance 29 2. A high performance full suspension mountain bike is now more affordable than ever!
Giant's ALUXX-grade aluminum frame gets the Stance 29 2 off to a great start, with light weight and high strength for excellent power transfer. The bike's geometry is more relaxed than an XC bike, improving confidence on steep descents and broken terrain. Giant's lightweight FlexPoint rear suspension allows the rear wheel to follow the contours of the trails with minimal moving parts. Managing the bike's handling is done with air-adjustable suspension front and rear. Out back, a Suntour Raidon R rear shock offers up 120mm of travel. Up front, a Giant Crest 34 RCL fork with 130mm of travel helps keep the bike where you point it over rock gardens. A tapered OverDrive head tube improves handling in twisty singletrack, while internal cable routing keeps the bike looking clean and sleek.
One of the component highlights of the Stance 29 2 is the addition of Shimano's 12-speed Deore single-chainring drivetrain. Yes, this is a 12-speed full-suspension mountain bike for less than $1700! A Deore shifter, Deore 10-51T cassette, Shimano chain, Deore rear derailleur and a 30T Praxis Cadet crankset provide a massive gearing range and lightning-quick operation over every inch of the trail.
Rolling stock consists of Giant's own tubeless-ready alloy AM29 wheels and knobby tubeless-ready 29x2.35" Maxxis Forekaster tires. The combination of a 30mm inner rim width, tubeless capability and aggressive tire tread adds boatloads of traction in root "fun houses" and loose surfaces. Speed control is critical in technical terrain, and Shimano's MT200 hydraulic disc brakes help with that task in all conditions, sunny or muddy. An alloy Connect seatpost, Romero saddle, alloy Contact stem, and alloy Connect Trail handlebar complete this amazing value in a trail bike.
