I'm getting N=1'd courtesy of the boss soon, most likely an Anthem X short-travel duallie. There is not one bike in the series that I don't want to change something on!
In fact the only bike in the entire MTB line-up that I would take as specced is the Trance Advanced 1. Full XT groupset, including triple-ring crank. (The equivalent Anthem only has a knee-busting double). Except I'm not really considering a Trance model!

but either have not the patience or the budget for the new generation team-edition model (pictured) to come out, Giant Australia have managed to source a limited edition of 2011-model TCR Advanced frames painted in the 2012 Rabo paint scheme, which was unveiled just a couple of weeks ago. This bike is specced with Ultegra gear & Shimano RS-20 (decent but not brilliant) wheels. All for $3k.
Giant says we're not allowed to advertise it with pictures on the 'Net 'cos it's an Australia-only release, and don't want the rest of the world to see what they're missing out on!.
PS: I work in a shop that sells Giants.
