Just a rambling story about maintenance...
At the beginning of this season I did a full disassemble of my Trance X and discovered that most of the bearings in the rear were either seized or very rough.
I took it into my local shop - Icycle Sport - and they quickly and professionally replaced all the bearings (10 in total) with Enduro Max bearings.
The change in the bike is amazing. I have to run higher pressures in the rear shock because it is way more active now and everything moves much more smoothly. It's, quite literally, better than new.
If you have a Trance X I would highly recommend looking into a bearing swap out regardless of age. The flip side is you should also check to see if your bearings are seized - I couldn't tell before I took the bike apart.
