If you know Cary then you know he’s got darn fine taste in bikes.

Exhibit A:

Giant Trance 27.5 XTR

Cary’s recently completed all-XTR Giant Trance 27.5. The new 11 speed XTR setup paired with a 34t Wolftooth front ring provides an excellent gear range, riding reliability, and an increadibly smooth shift even in the rough stuff. Add to that a Raceface SixC 35.0 cockpit, KS Integra dropper, and a Fox suspension platform and you’ve got a bike worth drooling over. Or in Cary’s case it’s just one more reason to be stoked 24-7.
