looking to up my steed from Hardrock Sport to a 27.5 FS bike. Right now ive got a woody for the '14 Giant Trance 27.5 1.

I mostly ride ST with rocks n roots here on Cape Cod. Some techy stuff around but I dont kill it yet as my confidence and skillz are poor on the trail. I THINK the Trance is a solid choice for this area?!? And a bike I can progress with. Please correct me if I'm wrong!

New Englanders - How will this bike stack up to some more challenging and mountainous terrain (not major DH butů)???

Also been peeking at the Kona Process 153 and Santa Cruz Bronson.

Hola y gracias!
