    Yeah, saw that but can't come up with much about the Giant Tracker Performance hubs. Seems like multiple rebranded hubs are called that name based on the bike and year. It does seem to imply the X2 has a Formula rear hub. Not sure about the X1.

    To people who changed handlebar. I was riding X2 in M, which was slightly to short, and L - more than slightly to long. Did you notice any differences after change handlebar for something different? Shorter or longer reach? Any information needed, please.

    Go for a wider bar, if your trails aren't too tight...

    I think he is talking about the stem. I haven't seen the length specified anywhere for the stem lengths for each size, or the handlebar width.

    Edit: Found in thread

    Small = 70mm
    Medium = 90mm
    Large = 100mm

    I can't change parts during testing. Medium was a little too small. But in medium if I change bar for narrower, I have to change stem for longer. I can't change seatpost for inline for example Reverb. If I change in Large bar for narrower, stem shorter and seatpost inline, will it be still good handling? I'm 5'11''

    I've always seen advice to not change from one seatpost type to another on a frame that is designed for either or. It'll effectively change the geometry in small ways, but impact the feel in potentially larger ways. If you have the parts available, there is no harm in trying it, but i wouldn't purchase it without trying first.

    At 5'11'' you should have chosed the Large maybe with a smaller stem, but a large would have fit you way better. Go get good fit on your bike it will help a lot. I'm not saying that out of nowhere I work in a giant retailer and it is really rare that someone gets out of our shop with Medium at 5 '11'' unless the custumer really wants it and he knows the bike is to small for him.

    I'm 5'11", and after testing both sizes, picked the large. The medium might have worked OK for me, but the large just felt more right. I have the X0, and can't say enough great things about it - it rips!

    Could someone measure stack and reach for medium and large Trance, please.
    How to measure (remember - in midlle top of head tube):
    Reach A-B, stack C-D

    I feel your fitting pain. I'm more around 5'10", maybe slightly over. Either you get a large and use the extent of the adjust-ability on the low end, or a medium and use the upper end. My last bike was a large enduro sl, but experienced trouble in more technical trail getting my weight behind the seat. Both because I couldn't lower it enough and the longer reach. I do have shorter legs, around 30" inseam.

    I'm going with a medium this time around. I'm sure there will be times I'll feel a little cramped, but I think I'll also feel more comfortable in technical downhill and switchbacks.

    Looking back through the thread it looks like it is half and half on which size our height goes with.

    With the new front derailleurs being mounted to the frame directly, is there a way to get the traditional clamp style ones to fit? I have an X0 front that I'd like to swap out and replace the x7 on the trance 1.

Im 5'9" and demoed (black and red X1?) med TX29 and was completly blown away!!! Put the bike on lay away will pick it up in March if not sooner all depends on mother nature and snow pack i live in Utah and we usually have snow covering most of the good riding.

    All I can say is wow this bike is sick so fast tracks and rails through anything almost makes everything to easy the avid brakes are ok but make some noise. The lbs ran my dropper post cable on outside with zip ties ?and didn't cut it so first thing I did was route it internally and cut to apropropriate length pretty easy to do I ran it through the right side so I can now run the rear brake through the left side looks like it will be tight with the fitting on the line to get through I have to wait for my buddy that has a bleeder tool. I ride wheelies a lot and I noticed with the 29er it's much harder to turn when your on the rear wheel then with the 26 can still ride wheelies on it just noticeably harder to turn during. We have a drop off on the trail I rode about 4ft to flat it soaked it up very nicely a couple other small jumps felt really comfortable jumping it right away. Overall very pleased so far. Gona check over everything and get back out there. 🚵

    The post or the saddle attached to the post? My saddle wobbles a little, even when properly torqued. It's pretty common with dropper posts in general. The post itself shouldn't, though.

    Anyone riddden a X2 as well as either a X1 or X0? I see the shock on the X2 (Rockshox) is tuned for a firmer compression than the Fox, I was wondering if there was much of a difference or is a Monarch M compression the same as a Fox CTD L compression?

    lots of talk and not a lot of pics lately. Here's my throbbing clown wheeled sex machine. As to why it's a sex machine, well, it did manage to f*ck my bank account pretty good.
