    05/06 Trance

    Im thinking about buying a second hand Trance and putting some 130mm coil forks on it. I know the originally came with 100mm air forks but I was wondering if anybody had had any success with longer forks on this vintage Trance.

    If so show me your pics.

    Thanks.

    I loved it this way.

    BTW this frame is for sale

    The Super T you have is really a very good fork. I'd take that fork over a Fox 40 or a Boxer unless i was entering a fashon contest instead of a race

    i'm running a 130mm revelation (air) on my '06 trance and love it. i have a pic in one of the trance threads in the sticky, but have no idea where at this point. i can snap a few of its current set up later today or tomorrow if you want.

    If you can take a pic that would be great.

    Also how is it climbing? Is the seat angle too shallow now or is it still ok?

    i have no issues at all with climbing or the seat angle. overall the bike feels much more stable than it did with the 100mm fork - in all conditions.

    i'll get a pic soon.

    Love the pics guys!!! I'm running a 140mm Pike on my '06 Trance. Still climbs like a billy goat and bombs like an AM rig.
