    2014 Trance X 29er.
    Not much other than the frame is left original.

    Pike RCT3 fork, Fox DPS shock, Stans Flow v3 wheels amongst other changes.

    Ends up being a little weird hybrid bike. It´ll never win any speed contests but its fun to throw around the trails - which is all that really matters.

    I have an older Trance X...2007...looking to update/upgrade components.
    Looking for wheels, drivetrain, brakes maybe a new fork or any other suggestions...trying to stay under a $1000 for the most I can get.
    Any ideas?

    I had a 2008 Trance X0. I'm assuming it is pretty much the same as the 2007 so here it goes. The most noticeable difference/improvement was swapping out the stock wheels with the Mavic CrossMax wheelset. Another thing I did was getting rid of the big chainring and replacing it with a bash guard. I don't know how the trails are like where you are but where I am we have a lot of logs and rocks where a bash guard comes in handy. I never use the big chainring anyway. I usually stick with the middle ring and on the rare occasion the small. It had a 3x8 setup. I would also recommend getting a dropper seatpost but again, that will have to depend on the types of trails you ride. I don't know how your fork and rear shock are but a good tune or rebuild may help.

    A new set wheel set will help. I did a set of Mavic XM319's on Hope hubs for my '10 Trace X. I went 1x10, but with the costs of 1x11 coming out now.. that is the route I'd go today. Grab a set of XT brakes and rotors then get your fork and shock serviced. Should be good to go for a few more years yet, unless the pivot bearings are almost shot.

    Everything sounds good and thank you guys for the suggestions.
    Funny but I was actually looking at the Mavic CrossMax wheelset as
    well as changing over to a 2 x 11 or possibly a 1 x 11.
    I had the fork serviced a couple times over the years so I might keep it.
    But again, thank you for your ideas.
