I have recently flogged my '03 GT I drive 2.0, as every time I rode it I seemed to have a problem with it! After I lost a dog bone bolt halfway through a 30 mile ride, that was the final straw!

Was initially looking for a Giant nrs frame, but really i always wanted an anthem, so when barneyballbags aka mark offered this for sale, I had to have it!

Not bad eh!?

Control wise I have some FSA k force flat bars, with a nice race face evolve stem - ti bolts of course!

Forks are something a bit different, Magura menja xc100. Cranks are race face deus xc.

More to follow! :wink:

They do ride real nice.

Here's mine. I need to swp pivot bearings but some numpty has over tightened the hex bolts, slightly rounded and I've not got around to fixing yet. Giant quoted £11 per bolt!!

Been out on the anthem today, first proper ride out!! Have changed the saddle for a nice light selle SLR, and changed the top cap and seat clamp for some nice mt zoom items from xcracer.com...

Just need to set the fork and shock pressures out, but it rode very very well! Almost felt quick as my Scott scale!

Image
Up at lee quarry - is that the sun shining?!

Image
Climb up out of lee quarry to the pennine bridleway

Image
Cragg quarry, berms. A plenty!

Image
Target acquired! The tower in the distance is holcombe tower.

Image
Another monster climb!

Image
Up the back of ski rossendale, near the end!

I'm waiting for a pair of ti skewers, xt rotors now so will update soon!

Hope u like the pics
