    Very nice. :thumbsup:

    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.

    Wait a sec! you put a 7.5 on the rear?! how?! Huh what? does that work correctly?

    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.

    What enduro shock bearing mod?

    akaBrowntown
    Hope this doesnt come across as me being a smartass, but I think he means replacing the stock bearings with Enduro brand bearings.
    Enduro Bearings - precision bearings for mountian bike and road bicycle applications

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