I have currently a 2010 Giant Yukon FX with a Pure XCR wheelset and tubeless Geax Saguaros. I came into a pretty good little chunk of cash last night and I want to splurge a little on bike stuff.
My current options are:
A.) Trade in or attempt to sell my FX and buy a 2012 Trance X4 and move my wheelset over to the Trance.
B.) Upgrade the fork and brakes on my FX save $150 and wait another year to buy a trance and keep the FX for a second bike.
Im also buying my wife a new bike this weekend so the X4 is about as high into the budget as I want to dive.
The only question I did have, the 12 Trance X4 has the Rock Shox XC32 fork. Which from my understanding is the same fork as my Dart 3 but with 32mm stanchions. Am I going to hate the XC32 as much as I do my Dart? I would assume it would be a good bit better because of the less flex of the 32mm stanchions. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
