    Stronger, stiffer, nicer looking, lighter tubes, a lot lighter actually which was a problem with the old one, it either needed more travel or a lighter frame, now they’ve sorted one of those problems out it is now a light cross country/trail bike. The lower shock mount is a lot neater and shields the shock a bit more. It has a very long head tube with internal bearings. Those are the main differences that I can think of but I think Giant left the rest of it alone, it is a great design so they didn’t need to change much to make it much better.

    I found a good used Trance1 06 for about 2040 $ (1300 eur)

    Fork fox F100RL
    Rear Shock RP3
    Wheels crossmax sl
    Brakes Hayes el camino
    Der. sram x0
    Control sram x9 trigger
    BB XT
    Handlebar, Seatpost Race Face Carbon
    Stem Race Face

    or a new Trance X2 3350 $ (2250 eur) ...with a good mounting, but in this case I have to spend 1450 eur + my actual bike to the dealer.

    Trance X2 is not equipped as the Trance1 but has new, lighter, stiffer I have to decide which bike buy...can you help me?
