The Giant VT range has been well received as a complete all rounder. It climbs well, descends well, looks good, and is perfect for the UK rider, whether they are riding open moorlands or technical purpose built forestry track.
Now the VT2 has got even better. For 2005 the VT will be only £1,199. Thats right, a whole lot of bike for very little money, but one of you, if you play your cards right, will not even have to pay that…
We want to know why you need a soft rear end.
As always a picture is worth a thousand words so we want your pictures as to why you think you need a soft rear end. These can either be of your trails, your current bike, or even your person. They can be photoshopped, annotations added, drawings even – anything goes. We are simply looking for the best idea/best entry (as judged by us).
Entries are to be e-mailed into firstname.lastname@example.org and the competition closes on 15 January 2005. We will give you some updates along the way.
As for the prize, a brand new Giant VT2 could be yours.
