Im looking at my new ride - Giant Trance X 29er - and the x1 model seems a real value for the build - combo of x7/x9 and F32 CTD fork - but the non-FIT version.
My question - is the FIT version a big difference VS the non-FIT?
I ride the Anthem with FIT fork today, but honestly - dont really like the fork that much.
I've ridden a bike with the new CTD F34 fork in longer travel (140 vs 120 in the new trance and 100 on my Anthem) and felt it was supple when necessary (i.e. - bigger hits, downhill), good small bump and square edge compliance.
Bike will see my better wheels and get a brake upgrade - so its really a cost diff of about $1100 for the x0 with the FIT fork after its all said and done...
thanks in advance!
