    Giant trance 2008/09 vs Giant Reign 2008/09

    Hello

    I ridden the Trance 2008/09 , on my favorite track, lovely geometry, very stable, no bopping, superfast in switchbacks, climbed pretty well, -but not the best climber i
    tried, but when i stir it all together it is a super bike. But one thing makes when
    passing it on, i ride mainly very fast technical singletrack, and even playing with
    the sag, i could feel i pushed it too its limits, i very much liked it to have some
    l more travel.

    And voila, there come the bigbrother, the giant reign, with 6 inches, perfects, but tell
    how does it ride compared to the trance, does it feel heavy, slow, how does it climb, does it feel "bottomless" on singletrack ?

    I ride a Blur LT, at the moment, compared to the trance, it is not as stiff, climbs worse, steering is more twitchy, it does bob a bit, it pedals pretty wells, but not as well as the trance, but it feels quite a bit more botttoless, when hittting holes, bumps, and i like it for that, so if the reign could match my LT, it would be a clear winner to me

    Now are we talking regular Trance or TX?

    the TX might be a better match, or a Reign still..

    I'm looking for a TX2 myself.

    I'm talking about the trance x. I demoed a 2008 trance xo this weekend it felt pretty good. I may be able to solidify a deal on a new 2008 trance X1 for $1800. Is this a good deal?

    $1800 sounds like a great deal to me. i forked out that same price for my 09 trance x3. Granted, i am satisfied with my purchase, the x1 is a significant upgrade. Wish i could have found a deal like that.
