    Very nice.

    Are you running a single front chainring with derailleur as chain guide? Thinking about going the same way with mine.

    guys I need a front derailleur for my new frame Trance X 2011, had a Bottom Swing but since the seatube has a curve it won´t work. Tried an old Derailleur but the cage was too short will any SLX/XT Bottom swing work?

    thanks

    Well, I am finally building up my 2011 frame set, which arrived at the end of 2012.

    Have fitted forks, stem, bars, brakes, rear mech and front shifters. Need to sort out cables, wheels etc tomorrow. Still, it looks good in the sitting room.

    I am either getting a BB from the local bike store or online, but either way I wanted to check out the size. I posted a while ago on here and someone said for a Trance X that the BB was BB30, but the US bike shop I bought the frame from said Shimano BB91 (the cranks used will be shimano). Can anyone please confirm?

    Also, I need still to get myself a front mech, seat post and saddle. I plan to get another fizik gobi, as I found mine comfortable on my hardtail, unless anyone can recommend anything cheaper? Was also thinking of getting a layback post, as I have a size L frame and am 6ft 2, and have got a 50mm stem. Anyone got a layback post on theirs? Also, anyone know what size the front mech band needs to be?

    Any help much appreciated.

    How do you like the 140mm fork? Thinking of going to a 140-150mm Talas on mine... Bet it brings out the best in the beast.

    I ride my 2010 frame with 190x50 mm shock too. It is quite a good setup if you have 140 mm fork - angles are similar to stock and BB height isn’t dramatic. There is a table with my measurements with different setups:
    none at none in Katowice, Poland - photo by wooyek - Pinkbike

    BUT I decided that having more travel and same angles makes no sense and so I put one offset bushing in the upper eyelet of rear shock (-3 mm). It puts the length of the shock halfway between 190 mm and stock 184 mm, so you can easily imagine what the values from the table would be.

    The 7.5 bolts right up no issues at all. It raises the bb less than .20 inches but gives an additional .75 inches in travel. So I have 140mm in back and 140mm out front. With the 140f and 140r the bb is .22-.25inches higher which is hardly noticeable to me as my bike is a XL anyways.

    My 2011 Trance X

    Got the frame, moved some stuff from my RX. I'm very happy with the way this one
    rides. I did the Enduro shock bearing mod as well. Next on the list are a Kronolog post, and shadow plus 10 spd. drivetrain.

    Hope this doesnt come across as me being a smartass, but I think he means replacing the stock bearings with Enduro brand bearings.

    Anyone stick with the 26 opposed to going to the Trance 29?

    yeah, Im sticking with the 26 and throwin a 140 talas ctd on in a few weeks... Maybe add a inch of travel in the rear.. not sure how playful a 29r would be off jumps and drops and such.. Sure it may go a little faster in the straits and pedaling, but I ride for fun and not sure the 29r would be as fun.

    '08 Trance X2

    I am still riding my '08 X and I decided to update the look by powder coating the suspension linkages.



    Here is a link to another post with more pictures of the process.

    Looks really good. Great to hear you are enjoying an older model still.

    Did you ever try reversing the spacers on your headtube? I now have my handlebar as low as it can go with the spacers above it and the steering improved dramatically. Quite possible this is just personal, but the difference to me was much improved.

    Thanks, I still prefer the clean look of the anodizing on the older models.
    I haven't tried swapping the spacers but I did switch to a shorter stem than than stock and I know that made a huge difference for me.

    The linkages are awesome! Where do you find different colors?!
    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    My first post here. Only just bought this frame new, first ride today.

    Photo taken at top of Jacob's Ladder, near Edale, Derbyshire about 2 hours ago. Cold enough to freeze my Camelbak hose !

    Nice one - bet you're pleased you went for that model. The frame really look gorgeous doesn't it !! The combination of brushed aluminium and red anodised parts is stunning.

    I know I stripped mine down straight away, but there isn't a single part wrong on the '11 X1 - it's perfect as it is. I wish I'd been able to afford to keep it stock. Oh BTW, Giant's website was wrong after all - the UK version did indeed have an SLX cassette, so mine really is identical to your 'international' version. Just out of curiosity, what percentage of the RRP did you get yours for ?

    Very worthy of this honor Uncle Cliffy. How did you get the BB so low? My AtoC is 516mm and I have a 13.6BB.
    With your fork and angleset your bike may be the longest and most stable ever!

    This is just how it worked out with the 150mm Revelation. I have the slackest cup in there. (-1.5) She's pretty stable. Wheelbase is 47 inches exactly. Still gets up most of the climbs I do. Uphill switchbacks are tough, but I didn't build this bike to be good at those.
