    Trance 29er: X1 or X2

    Hi, which one would you recommend? I thought only the x1 and x0 were available in my area in my size, but turns out the x2 is available too. Thnx

    The Trance X 1 is worth the price premium if you're going to leave it alone. If you think you want an even nicer fork still, then obviously start with the cheaper bike and upgrade it. I did notice that the Trance X 0 has the same fork as the 1, but much improved drivetrain, brakes and wheels.

    Get the X1 as the shocks are better. You can always upgrade the cheaper items as needed.

    trance 0 is not the same fork - it has the fox fit cartridge

    I wound up with the 2, I think thats the sweet spot for bang for the buck. Left room for extra kit a a couple upgrades and still came in under the 1.
