Trance 06-08 - Frame Difference
which are the difference between the 2 version?
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.
Thanks for the reply!

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 frame...now I have to decide which bike buy...can you help me?
