20 Most Recent Giant Anthem X2 Questions & Answers


Hi there,

I know, this can be extremely frustrating...

First and easiest, check that your rear wheel is tightened completely, this can also sound like suspension noises.

Next, a bit more effort, unscrew your pedals, clean out the gunk, put some grease on the thread and replace, tighten securely.

You might also have to check your wheel bearings, mine is in the shop at the moment because of this, bearing issues...

I would also check the BB (bottom bearing) where your crank goes through, before the last step. This can also cause a lot of noise.

Lastly, if it is your suspension, you will have to take it apart, every link and check every bearing, they so have a limited life, clean out all dust and grit that gathered inside, replace and grease all bearings and links, but don't over tighten the links.

Here is a full service manual for you:

For a full suspension service, you will have to look at every single point that hinges on your frame, I count at least five on one side.

Hope this helps.

A Google search for "giant revive chain guard" seems to indicate that they were generally not available even when the bike had not been out very long.

You have a $4,000 bike and you're asking for help on the Internet? Contact your dealer, especially as the bike is likely still under warranty.

A Giant dealer would be the sensible place to go, but a simple Google search leads to this page on the Giant website: The combination of the 2011 owner's manual and the Hydraulic Disc Brake manual should give you some info: Support Owners Manuals Giant Bicycles United States. For more info on maintenance and repair go to Sheldon Brown Bicycle Technical Information or https://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help

Loosen the nut or allen bolt on the top of the stem until it is up about 1/4 inch or so and then tap it with a hammer. That should loosen the stem. Raise it to where you want it, but no higher than the "Minimum Insertion" line that is marked on the stem.

DOES NOT EXIST, NOT NEEDED. Just replace with a similar type of brake caliper.

You have a very expensive, high-performance road bike. It is built for speed, not comfort. If a slightly larger width tire would fit that would give you some relief, as would a suspension seat post.
