2020 Giant Stance 2 My First Full Suspension MTB Ride & Review

2020 Giant Stance 2 My First Full Suspension MTB Ride & Review

This was legit my very first time riding a full suspension mountain bike and I have reeeaaalllyyy been missing out!! WOW!!
Huge thanks to Melissa, Jared and all the folks over at Lewis & Clark in Rogers, AR for setting me up with this loaner until my bike comes in. I am so excited to shred a few trails with this bike until mine shows up and simply can’t express enough how ecstatic I am to finally be on a full sus with a dropper.

This bike felt super solid, hella nimble and I can tell is about to really broaden the horizons of what I see as possible on a mountain bike!! Smiles all around over here!

  2. What vans shoes do you wear?

    Great video, man!! I am driving 2 hours to pick up my 2020 Stance 2. I transitioned from road to MTB and can’t wait for my first trail rip! I was in between a few bikes but I feel confident enough to make the move on the Stance. Keep it up man!

  4. Wow…professional quality video with an awesome bike 🙂

  5. The swiss army knife of bikes

  6. Great video. I have the same bike and love it. No seat dropper post though : (

  7. Looks like you got the 2021 my man. The 2021 has the Shimano Deore, 10-51 cassette. I have the 29 version, awesome bike!

  8. I found this video motivational. I got a Stance 1 and started riding mountain bike a couple months ago (I’m 50). I’ve been loving it, and the Giant full suspension bikes are pretty nice bikes for the money.
    Those are pretty nice trails you have there, and it didn’t seem like there was too much traffic except for a few hikers here and there. To ride trails like that where I am, you have to deal with both hikers and other cyclists constantly. Hard to get any kind of flow going and trail etiquette is hard to come by.

  9. I am saving for the 2020 stance 2 and I am super excited. Thanks for the great video

  10. Didn’t know the stance 2 came stock with a dropper post. Definitely getting one😁

  11. I lucked out last Aug 1, bought a 2020 Stance 1 29. The only upgrade needed is consider a 203mm front brake rotor. Then you have better stopping power. Very easy to resell, then aspire/save your pennies for a Giant Trance 29 3, in orange it’s a great value at about $2100 new. I ride up to 20 miles at 9,000′ in Utah, cross country is great. Full disclosure: the Maestro suspension means you can ride a bit harder as the Stance suspension is more side to side. Not a big deal, get out and ride as these bikes sell out way too fast in the local shops.

  12. in soon i will go to school for my services in phillipines

  19. Nice video man! Can you please share what’s the dropper post tu installed for the bike? Thanks a lot! And also if you did any other changes. 👍🏽

  20. I’m 6’6" … Been having a blast with my 2020 Stance 29-2 XL for a few months now….

    Thank you dude, planning to purchase a stance myself since I started mtb 3 months ago.

  22. Nice Video dude 🙂 The Intro with the music and video is great.. Do you like the bike?

  23. How tall are you? I am 6’2 , 39yrs , arm length 28.5 inches. I’m somewhat disappointed w/ my 1st MTB purchase. It was a family / Christmas buy. Myself & 3 of 5 our kids got bikes for Christmas. Not too happy w/ the wife since YOU DO GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. I got GT Aggressor Pro / Large Frame. I am REACHING for the handlebars. I know youre not supposed to sit upright like a goofball riding a bike in full speed. I’m some leaning forward like a Tour de France style. I see a lot of people w/ GT Aggressor changing out the handle/neck STEM, that would bring the handlebars closer towards to the stem. WOULD THAT HELP? I still feel the space between the seat to the stem is massively long….

  24. did you add the dropper post ?

  25. That looks like the 2021

  26. You have the best videos and great attitude. Keep up the good work

  27. Hi, I wanted to ask how the bike is performing .. I would like to buy one and I have no idea if it is good for my skills. I just want to know if the bike is easy to handle and if it is light. Thanks in advance.

    I just got the Trance 3 coming from Talon 2, loved the Talon 2 , and am a aw at what full suspense gives you in comfort, and overall he ability to ride longer, less fatigue ….. Good luck with your bike, enjoyed your video! 🙂

  29. Intro was insane…great job. And good video.

  30. What’s up bro! I just picked up my 2020 Giant Stance 29er Medium frame and I love it!

  31. Can the rear shock be locked

  32. best advice – Lift your head up. Look out and not down. Focus on something about 10 ft away from you as you approach it find something else. This will help with balance too. Im no expert, but just picked up the 2021 Stance 2 29er and these are some things have helped me a lot

  33. Duuude awesome review man! I’ve been planning on finally making the jump to a double suspension & this just seals it!

  34. someday i well gate something for me that bike I don’t have a bike because I don’t have much money to buys something giant bike I like to test it but I can some people giveaway there bike for people need

  35. Very genuine way of making a bike review! Keep it up!

  36. Flynn Marchant May 14, 2021 @ 1:33 am

    Nice photography, Great video 👍👍

  37. Anton Hampton May 14, 2021 @ 1:33 am

    Nice!! I have a giant stance 2015 and it’s still a great bike, never missed a beat…they are well worth the £

  38. Just got it two😃👍

  39. I’ve just bought a 2020 Stance 2 (matt black); picking it up on Saturday. I had a Trance X4 about a year ago and have been riding a friend’s Anthem 3 since June, so this will be my third Giant. If you’re 6.2, you should definitely opt for a large frame.

  40. What’s better, Marin Zone 1 VS Giant Stance 2? I keep going back and forward between the two because the fork seems better with Marin (RockShox) compared to the stance 2 giant fork?

  41. Torrestactical 556 May 14, 2021 @ 1:34 am

    Awsome brotha I have the same bike still tryna up my skill

  42. TheRock Pro305 May 14, 2021 @ 1:35 am

    I just got mine yesterday a 2021 Stance 27.5 couldn’t be more hyped.

  43. Good video! 2 thumbs up!

  44. Jimmy Inthaphanh May 14, 2021 @ 1:36 am

    I just got into biking. I picked up a 2021 Stance 29 2 last week. Awesome bike for the price.

  45. Nice vid! Just want to ask if they will release stance 1 27.5 2021? Thanks!

  46. Christian Corrales May 14, 2021 @ 1:39 am

    I just got into the sport and i got the 2020 stance 2 in blue, drove 2:30 hours to pick it up but worth it, i absolutely love my bike!

  47. Murphy Harrington May 14, 2021 @ 1:40 am

  48. Brandon Yarvin May 14, 2021 @ 1:42 am

  49. Derek Newtown May 14, 2021 @ 1:42 am

    so you have a medium with 27.5. does that mean that the small size frame also has 27.5?
