    New question here. Trance X 29er 1 vs 0?

    Hey peeps. I'm jumping back into mountain biking after about 10 years mostly away. I've got a 2001 Specialized Enduro Sport that I've put a ton of miles on but not a lot recently. I ride road bikes sometimes and I'm not a bike noob, per se, but I've been out of the MTB game for a while, and I'm having fun getting back up to speed.

    After some research and help from a good friend, I've settled on the Trance x 29er. It looks like a great bike with great features for the money. My local bike shop has the 1 in stock, and I've ordered the 0 and it will be here Friday. I can still change if I change my mind, so I'm looking for some more input on those who made the same decision - if you would make the same decision again today, if you wish you would have made a different decision, etc.

    At normal retail price, I think I'd take the 1 every time. However, my LBS has offered me the 0 at $3400 and the 1 at $2500, so it's a bit trickier.

    So- at $3400, go for the 0? Or is the 1 still the better value? I really want the XT brakes, but I've never used sram stuff, so I can't really compare the groupset on the two bikes, but I've had great luck with Shimano in the past.

    Any input? Thanks in advance, amigos. Either way I'll be riding a trance x 29er on Saturday. Can't wait.

    0 .... you will NOT regret it. SRAM will let you down and AVIDs suck. XT all the way. Nothing needs upgrading on the 0.

    The 1 is definitely the best value and can be made equal to the 0 for less money than the retail price difference. However, with the deal you got on the 0, go for it. It no longer makes the 1 a viable alternative. You'll love it.

    At that price, I'd probably go with the 0. That's not much more than what I paid for my 1 with a set of Stans wheels.

    Trance X 29er 1 vs 0?

    I just bought a 1 for 2575. If I could have bought the 0 for 3400 I probably would have chosen that instead.
