Help upgrading giant trance x4
Hi guys, I need some help with upgrading my 2011 Trance X4. Ive Decided on a new fork, rear shock, and new rims/tyres as upgrades. Should shave some weight off as well. My first problem seems to be this forum as I can't press enter to use paragraphs lol. First question is about the rear shock. Im looking at either a Rockshock Monarch RT3, or Fox CTD as there the only 2 I can find in the correct size, the RS is a lot cheaper. What else is needed when changing the shock? or is it just a straight swap? do I need any extra bolts/bushes, etc? Second im pretty much set on some Mavic XM719 rims, still looking at tyres. My main gripe is what options do I need with it, I assume the first option is for the front wheel, so depends what size fork it is? unsure on 2nd QR adapter? the site ill be buying wheels from is here Superstar Components - High Spec Parts For Peanuts . Iam also looking at getting a rockshox pike 454 air u turn front fork as I want something strong and reliable and not to expensive, and 140mm ive read is the max u wanna go on a Trance.
