This XC legend returns with big updates for 2017. Featuring an updated platform with 110mm of rear suspension travel and 120mm up front, plus the superior all-around performance of 27.5-inch wheels, the new Anthem Advanced delivers lighter weight, better efficiency and improved control. The rear suspension features an all-new trunnion mount shock and Advanced Forged composite rocker arm for added strength and stiffness. And all-new, wider Boost hub spacing (110 front/148 rear) results in stiffer wheels for added control plus an improved chainline for optimal drivetrain performance. For riders seeking the lightest, fastest and most efficient Maestro-equipped Giant, this is the ultimate XC speed machine.

Weight The most accurate way to determine any bike?s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All Giant bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.
Our story begins in 1971. Bill Miller(Curt's dad) put a few bikes in a small storefront on Main Street in Nazareth. After selling through several times, Bill decided a larger space was needed. A space now occupied by Werkheiser's Shoes was large enough to allow 150 bikes to be displayed. This was during the bike boom of the early 70's. After paying rent for a few years Bill purchased the property on which the store now resides. A house occupied the piece of land and a showroom was added on. Many changes took place over the years... the most recent can be seen in these pictures. Our goal is to provide a comfortable place for customers to shop. Although we can't always have everything in stock we will do our best to meet every request.
