The anthem might be marketed as an XC bike, but trust me when I say this is a very capable bike. I have ridden many bikes and find myself comparing this to a more traditional trail bike. I have found it to be perfect for NorthEast trail riding. This bike was bought in 2017 and has been ridden lightly since. I honestly think this bike has less than 30 rides on it. Bike has been meticulously cleaned and mechanic owned/maintained throughout its life.
