    That was first initial thoughts. Because the day before, we did hit up a trail with some bigger dropoffs than the usual. Need to inspect it more. Maybe apply some fork lube?

    Did you move the stem around before or after the drop offs? It may have not been fully pushed up into the frame and has a little wobble there when you tightened it?

    I moved the stem before the drop offs. I checked to make sure it was tight.

    Probably the fork then. My friend did the suntour program with his xcr. He got the raidon x1 and that thing is nice. Just kinda weird it's after 5 rides or so.

    Same bike I think I'm going to end up with "next". We have a Giant demo day here soon and I cannot wait to try out both the Anthem and Trance.

    I'm enjoying the Mavic TN719's and XT hubs. They roll so much better than the stock Formulas...

    Super easy. Just an Allen wrench and about 10 minutes of your time.

    Probably going to list it for sale on craigslist soon.... Anyone have suggestions on the price? I'm not really sure what I should ask for it.

    What's the best way to upload photos from an iphone? Photobucket app seems to make the pic look really bad compared to the version on my phone.

    Pretty much stock minus the 1x conversion and relatively newdart 3 fork. I'll be throwing back on the Kenda SB8's and throw in a set of mud tires.
    New chain, cassette, brake pads with 2 extra sets, new grips.

    can probably get $450 or more. i listed mine for $450 and got a few bites. mine is a 2011 revel 1 and not much mods compared to yours.

    edit: wait, is yours a 29er? also, what year?

    It's just a 26er from 2011. $450 is pretty much along the lines of what I was thinking. I didn't want to list it for that until I knew I wasn't crazy and asking too much but it seems pretty fair. I haven't seen another Revel 0 for sale locally just some 2's for around $300.

    For a 0 I'm pretty sure you'll get that much. Like I said, I had a few bites for my 1 but I couldn't pull the trigger to sell it (still waiting to demo a trance 29), plus I'm thinking of just keeping it for riding around the neighborhood/paved park with the little one.

    Nope...buying a hard to pass up 29er hardtail. Then the trance sometime down the road. I'm not ready to spend 2k on a bike. I saw a pretty sweet 2011 trance x on ebay...custom build up but didn't win. Compared to the value of the parts on that bike it makes 2k for a less equipped bike seem a little crazy.

    Re: Revel Thread

    Bought some new tires for the bike, got a Geax AKA for the rear and a Geax Saguaro for the front. Miles better than the factory generic Kenda's that came on it.

    Nice! I'm rolling on Saguaro's both F&R. Which way did you mount the Front.. speed or traction? I have Front mounted to Traction and Rear mounted to Speed. So, far I like it a lot compared to Speed for both F&R.

    Mounted it for speed and it's been very good.

    The AKA is already a very fast tire so it's a good match.

    Gotcha. We have a demo day here coming up soon for Giant. Definitely can't wait to try the Trance in our local trails. Been debating between the Trance X2 or Spearfish 2.
