Trance X 29er: New England?
I've thrown a leg over & am fairly confident this is my next sled. I'd still like to here from some Yankees who may have some ride time for perspective. Tight & twisties, rocks... oh, and rocks... does the low bb play a factor? Still feel nimble bombing the Northeast woods?
Good to go by my book. Been riding one since early August. The tighter chainstays (and wheelbase) make it a plenty managable bike in the terrain we're used to. The bottom bracket isn't anything to worry about either, so long as you time your pedal strokes, which if you've ridden here for very long, you already do by muscle memory anyway. I'd say go for it. I do everything with mine from the local group ride with friends, to racing well in the pro field at the Highland Enduro race last fall. Did some riding on it last winter out west as well and it was rad out there too. The bike just delivers!
