I've taken ownership of a 2006 T2 (aust.) a couple of weeks ago.
My large (20") frame came with a 120mm stem... on my HT I ran a 90mm stem, 1.25" riser bars with a fairly good sweep (Easton Monkeylite Carbon) with a 5" fork.
I've sold off the stock Reba- after riding it on the road, the whole 4" thing just diddn't sit well with me. And now my Fox Vanilla's are on the Trance till I get some Revelations.
My question is... what fork travel and stem length do you run on your trance?
Even with the 5" fork, I'm still finding the low narrow EA50 stem & handlebar not quite confidence inspiring. The bike seems to turn almost too fast and I'm quite stretched out. I also wanted opinions on what stem length to run- I'll put the 90mm stem on and see how that goes. but I was thinking about a 100mm stem...opinions?
[SIZE=2]PS- I haven't been able to take the bike off road yet - i was riding along the road when a pedestrian came out running into me so i've got a bruised knee (just so happens to be the one that's always been problematic and only made a full recovery a couple of months ago!) and I'm missing some bark which needs to grow back before I ride again. At least my bike gave her a few bruises- other than that the stupid idiot really diddn't get that hurt. But when I do hit the trails again I'll do a write up and post pics [/SIZE]
