Giant TranceX, 650b (fr), PUSH 36, FULL XT w/options - Buy and Sell and Review Mountain Bikes and Accessories

Why do I call this a Treign, you ask?

Because it's a hybrid mutant.
It is 100/130/160 up front (as it is), with a 650b option, but 125 on the rear.
It has the incredible pedaling efficiency of the Trance, and with the slightly lower BB of the Trance, it makes for a 26 X 650b with a very reasonable BB height.
OR it can be bought as a 26" X 26"!!!

Here is more.
So, I need to sell my Trance X in order to get this Rocky.
I LOVE this bike, but it's time!
If any of you are looking, or if you know anyone looking, this is a VERY nice bike, and I can customize it (to a degree) to meet some different price points.
Basically, as it sits:

Med. 18 frame, 2010 model
Fox RP 23 rear shock (excellent shape, new oil 10/12)
Brand new 13' Monarch (medium compression) available for $200 extra.
FOX 36 TALAS, 100/30/60 PUSHED (7/12) RLC (the best one made, IMO)
XT brakes
XT shifters
XT cassette (all 9 speed)
XT rear Derailluer
XT rear hub
XT chain
Hope Front Hub
Stan's front rim
(650b Hope on Stan's Crest available for $125 additional)
Mavic or WTB trail rear rim
(both handbuilt, DT DB)
Race Face seatpost
Kore 750mm 1/4" rise bar
Stem TBD (your choice from 50,60,65,70) likely thomson X4
Race Face Deus cranks with Shimano XT rings

This is a pretty dope setup as is.
Thinking $1850 with the 36, full XT, etc.
I can go down with some cheaper parts/different fork,
or up with a brand new 10 speed drivetrain/brakes/etc from the new Altitude.
