I just am finishing a long term build of a Trance X 26" x1 frame. I got the tires and everything but seat, steering tube spacers and shifter housings mounted. Even pedals. And what really made me grin, was that the dang thing is so light! I was going cheap on a lot of stuff, and it sill came out to....26.5 lbs with pedals (just no seat)!
I know this is not really "news" but the forum seems a bit dead and figured I'd add a post.
My bike -
X1 trance MTBR classifieds - Large
Manitou Minute Pro 140 20mm axle (new - head tube is so dang long you can't find used to fit)
X9 9speed front and rear
SRAM gear cluster
XO grip shifts
race face alum. bar Jeson Closeout
Easton $2.99 stem (no kidding was Jenson closeout) 110 mm
Juicy 7 brakes and rotors - MTBR classifieds
some "clearance" sale ebay seatpost
XT crank/BB - new hollowtech x3 9 speed ( this is incredibly light!)
Stans wheels / 3.3 hubs
slant 6 tires

I need a seat, and cup of stans front and back but that's still way lighter than where I thought the bike was going to weigh in! I'm stoked! This is going to be amazing!
