- Giant Anthem X 29er 0, Medium, 2012
Overall in great shape, low miles on frame and fork, even less miles on Shimano parts and wheels.
The usual scuff's and marks for a mountain bike that's been ridden, small scratch on the chain stay behind the crank, see picture
Swapped out the SRAM for Shimano XT in early 2013 after being fed up with the crappy Avid brakes.
Now the bike shifts flawlessly and the braking power is amazing!
Just mounted brand new Maxxis rubber (and tubes).
Asking Price: $1,888

Johan Bruyneel recently made a rare media appearance, telling Luxembourg broadcaster RTL that he’s “pretty much done with cycling.”
The report, with images of a dapper Bruyneel walking the streets of London, said that Lance Armstrong’s former right-hand man does not plan a return to cycling.
“I’ve pretty much made the decision that I am done with cycling because I do not see a change,” Bruyneel told RTL.
Bruyneel, 49, is still facing a lifetime ban for a variety of anti-doping allegations. An arbitration hearing is set for December, with Bruyneel and Spanish doctor Pedro Celaya and trainer Pepe Martí reportedly poised to challenge the charges.
The embattled former sport director and team manager has largely avoided the media since the doping scandal engulfed Armstrong and the U.S. Postal Service legacy in October 2012.
“I don’t see myself as the devil. People are trying to picture myself and Lance as the bad guys,” Bruyneel said. “People are trying to blame it all on him, and I think that’s what’s happening. I am looking to move on, and that’s what I am trying to do.”
