This will be my third Giant XTC in the last few years. Both were great bikes, so I had no hesitation in buying another. I picked this bike up off eBay for a fair price, I'd have struggled to build up one for the same price. I had looked at the 2013 range and buying new, but for the money you really can't beat used bikes for value for money.2009 Giant XTC 2
I've had to order a new bottom bracket, as the one fitted has a lot of play in it. I'm hoping the seller will pay for this as it wasn't mentioned in the advert. I've also ordered a new saddle, as the one that was fitted was horrible.Spec:

I covered minimal miles on a MTB in 2012, mainly due to spending time running and on the road bike. However, I have missed being off-road and I'm hoping this will get me back in to things.
