GIANT TRANCE AD­VANCED 2 £3,399

Mountain Biking UK - - LONG-TERM RIDES -

I was hav­ing prob­lems chang­ing gear on the last climb of a ride. Af­ter throw­ing a tantrum, I dis­cov­ered one of the Trance’s chain links had split. Luck­ily I had a spare mas­ter link, but the chain was left too short to ac­cess the full spread of gears. A few days later, it was my Giant Con­tact SL Switch post’s turn to test my pa­tience. It had be­come stuck in the down po­si­tion and no amount of ten­sion twid­dling could get it to rise. I gave up and rode it old-school, rais­ing and low­er­ing the post in the frame. This mashed the cable. D’oh! www.giant-bi­cy­cles.com
