    I was wondering what max markings are on the trance seatpost. A reverb has a limit of 80mm but some manufacturers will spec a limit of 100mm or even 120mm. Using less post in the frame could void the warranty?

    I can only speak for the X/L. Seat post is 30.9 X 375.

    Minimum insertion line is 120mm.

    I also went back and forth, between Large and X/L, but in the end went X/L because I have a long upper body. Everyones different, and will have different results.

    Whichever you get you will love it!!

    I'm not familiar with Giant wheels. Anyone know if the X2 or X1 are tubeless ready?

    I think not. P-XC29 and S-XC29 have a std spoke-bed AFAIK.

    Would be nice to know the weights of the three wheelsets though...

    PXC are easily converted to tubeless - many have done the ghetto method - i bought the Stans rimstrips (not the tape) as recommended - the "flow" rim strip - and within 30 mins had both wheels mounted with a handpump

    used em for almost 3 mos before I added another shot of sealant - and rarely added air

    tires were panaracer 2.35 rampage frt, maxxis 2.25 ardent rear

    Straight from the Giant catalog:

    X0 - P-TRX 29er 1 Wheel system, 1795-Gram , Tubeless compatible.

    Will try to get the other two weights, but catalog not complete.

    Thanks Z4. Looks like even using my reverb 420mm post if I need 120mm of seatpost inside the frame, XL is the only option to me.

    100mm minimum in the manual for the seat post that came with my L trance x 29er.

    Cheers. Went for a spin on a medium X1 tonight - extended steep climb, rock gardens, fast & twisty downs. Moved all the spacers above the stem, (but didn't flip it), which improved the handling hugely. Felt really good for a 29er, I'm impressed. Seemed to fall between my RX and TX 26rs in terms of handling. A Fox 34, flat bar, straight-post and a shorter flipped stem would complete the package nicely.

    That sounds like a great setup Haggis. I've already ordered a Thomson X4 0 degree stem. Seat post next. Its a great ride.

    Don't know if I missed something, but that stem won't fit the Trance X 29's Overdrive steerer. They are 1 1/4" not 1 1/8". Just a heads up.

    I know. It's a bit confusing Trance X0 and X1 have the OD2, 1 1/4 upper 1 1/2 lower.
    Trance 2 has OD 1 1/8 upper. 1 1/2 lower. Verified on their spec sheet and LBS.

    Just got my large X1 last night. It came with a 90mm stem. My experience with sizing is that Giant got this bike pretty well dead on. I'm 6'1" and 210, and ride Large on any bike. I dropped the stem and swapped 15mm of spacers to the top, and that's about it. All the hand wringing over sizing seems a little out of control to me.

    It rode great, very fast. I rode with the front and rear shocks in "trail" the entire time and didn't feel like I was losing much effort to bobbing, etc. 5" of travel makes a world of difference!

    Get one, fast as you can get it ordered and shipped in!

    Does anyone else prefer the "Trail" setting on the shock to the "Descend", even when descending? I seem to always end up leaving my in Trail unless I'm on a fire road climb or pavement.

    Anyone know the shock length on the Tx 29er. Is it still the 7.5[185mm] x 2 [50mm] used on the Tx 26"?

    I live in Florida! I could leave it in "Climb" if I wanted. I do leave mine in the Trail mode. I will have to wait until my next trip to the mountains to test the Descend mode.

    Apparently the difference is the fork's steerer and the top bearing of the headset. The head tube/ frame is unchanged between build kits

    Agreed.. It does give a better choice for stems, until they ramp up production for the larger size.

    What are you platform guys running for pedals? I have an X2 an have it narrowed down to spank spike's in orange or blue, or loaded precision pedals in blue. Decisions, decisions.

    Still 4 weeks till I get my hands on the frame but first impressions from 29 inches aren't as good as I hoped; sold my Sultan for something a bit lighter but wondering if I should have kept now!

    +1 for the XT M785's. I had these pre-purchased over a month in advance and waiting for the bike. Great pedals.

    I think you'll be fine. Note that it says it doesn't do one feature of each of those as well as specific bikes. It's a very nice all-rounder, in my opinion. Also, I feel that it takes a bit more setup on the suspension to get it perfect for your riding style, but once you do, it performs extremely well. Also, if you got a complete bike, make sure to lose some of the spacers if it comes with a huge stack like most I've seen.
