    Trance 29?

    Is Giant working on a Trance 29? Just curious. I have a 26" Trance and am very happy with it but if by some weird chance I wanted to go with a 29" bike, I would be interested in more suspension travel than offered on the Anthem 29."

    Beat me if this has been addressed but I didn't find anything in the Giant Forum.

    Thanks

    I asked my Giant Rep about it and he said I'm not sure but the grin on his face indicated its coming.

    2013 may be the year! Only a few years behind the people that they've been making all those great 29ers for
    any time spent riding a bicycle is re-cycled goodness....

    What would you think of a Trance 650b?

    If they really wanted to make a statement, they should do a Trance 29/650b.

    I wish they'd bring back the curved top tube while there at it. 650b or 29 would be a blast.

    What would be the advantages/disadvantages of a 29er Trance over the 29er Anthem X's?

    I would imagine the advantages would be the same as the 26" versions. The Trance gives you more travel and a slacker "trail" geo that (subjectively) suits all around trail riding more than the racy Anthem. Of course you can tweek an Anthem to be more burly, but you are compromising the intended nature of the design.

    Disadvantages? I'm sure there will be some. I'd love to get one and try to find any
