    Thinking of buying a Tranced Advanced (carbon) any advice? (29er)

    Hi, All

    I test rode a Trance X and liked it. I am thinking of getting a Trance Advanced. Anything to look out for? Does anyone have experience on a Trance Advance (carbon Trance 29)? Can I put a 140 fork on a Trance?

    TIA

    I think you will have to get the Trance x29 advanced custom made?

    No, a carbon trance 29er has never been released. 26 and 27.5 yes.

    I thought they had. After much digging it looks like they have not. The couple of trance advanced that I thought were 29ers were 26ers when I looked at the specs. bummer, I think that would be the one back to have. The Anthem does not turn me on nearly as much with the low bottom bracket. Dang, now I do not know what to do.

    Apologies for the buggus question.

    do not think so. fully vested in 29er stuff plus I like the way they ride.

    I wonder how light a Trance X can be built.
