Giant gives us the Faith 0 for 2011. It is a 7” freeride bike which uses the Giant dual link Maestro suspension. This is typical throughout Giant’s range. It also uses two short and stiff links creating a virtual floating pivot.
The Faith 0 is controlled by bar spin friendly RockShox’s RC2DH Totem 180mm suspension fork and RockShox’s Vivid 5.1 R2C rear shock and laced to the meaty MTX 31 rim/Giant Tracker 20mm at the front hub/Formula Disc rear hub. It also features a single ring and MRP chain guide and uses the SRAM X.9 shifters/X.9 rear derailleur with Avid Elixir CR disc brakes for immediate non-skid stopping power.
In addition, it is fitted with the Race Face Respond DH handlebar/Diabolus stem with Giant Connect SL seat post. The frame is the new Hydroformed lightweight ALUXX SL Aluminum tubing with a uniquely convertible dropout system. It has a tapered Head tube up front together with Giant’s burly contact FR stem. The 2011 Giant Faith 0 is tough and rugged but versatile enough for easy home trail rides.
