Giant is a great bike to ride because the frame is simple, yet comfortable. The Trance X Advanced SL 0 is one awesome bike because it has hydraulic disk brakes, it's as light as a feather, and it has dual suspension. Also, if you need to work on the bike it has a very simple and easy frame design that won't leave you wondering why you should've bought a different bike. The Trance runs at around $6800.
