    2005 Giant

    Just wondering if anyone has heard anything about the 2005 giant AC bike?

    No AC... from what I understand. They are introducing an entirely new suspension system and three new bikes that are sort of varying levels of "all mountain" bikes.

    They are going to have a 4, 6, and 8" travel bike using their new suspension design with an SPV setup.

    In my searches for a new bike, I went to a shop to look at the 2004 DH comp and one of the shop guys showed me the supposedly new '05 AC. I didn't look at it properly, but I'm pretty sure it had the same rocker arm linkage as in previous years, Then again the shop guy could have been wrong and it might have been a 2004.5 model.

    Yeah they are all using the new Maestro suspension. I think one of the models is called the Faith, one something that begins with L, and I can't remember the third at all.

    Isnt this like the third thread in about 2 weeks asking about 05 Giant? Jeez! Here is a link with quite a few 05 Giants:

    http://www.phantomcycles.com.au/Cont...LT=3,@CatID=40 And choose Hardtail or Dual.

    On this forum? I haven't noticed any, then again I don't like giant, so if I see a topic with giant I tend not to make an apearance.
