    Looking to purchase a used Trance X - What frame size?

    Hi,

    I'm in the market to purchase a used Trance X that I will be using next year. I'm 5'9" and ~135 pounds. What size frame should I be looking at? Will I be able to fit on a size small properly?

    Thanks!

    You're on the small end of a medium. You might fit on a small but you'd have to make too many concessions.

    I'm 5'6" 30" inseam on a small 08 Trance X. I run a 110mm stem and have to run my kindshock i950 385mm post a bit higher than the min insertion line. I demoed a couple smalls and mediums before I bought it and the smalls just felt better. Same with a small and medium at an Ibis demo. That being said, I'm looking for a medium 5spot which will be an inch longer seat tube and top tube.
