Giant Warp Build Update

It’s been a while since I’ve even mentioned rebuilding my old Giant Warp frame. But I’ve been slowly been piecing it together and today I was finally able to complete it.

So here’s the tale of the tape:
Sram X7 shifters and rear derailleur
Spinner Cargo Fork
Avid BB5 Disc Brakes
WTB Wheelsset
WTB Saddle
WTB Headset
TruVativ Blaze Crankset
SRAM cassette

Cargo Fork baby!


The Giant Warp was my first Full Suspension mountain bike. I do love this frame because it fits me rather well. The current set up has 6″ of travel in the front and 5″ in the back. The frame has beautiful shaping, thanks to the Fluid Form technology that Giant uses.

After everything was said and done, the bike weighs about 32lbs. Now if I were to go with my lighter Marzocchi Bomber fork, I can get this puppy down to 30lbs. Ooh and once I replace the rear coil over shock, this will be below 30lbs. But I’m not too worried about the weight right now, I just excited to get back on the trails with my Warp!
