    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.

    Looks nice Pujetta - why the change of suspension linkage/pivots colours ?

    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.
