I currently have an 2011 Reign 0 as my do it all bike, I love this bike, it replaced the 05 Reign 2 that I had. Bike is great for all mountain riding and technical stuff, but I find after about 13 miles of single track almost cross country rising that I am getting burned out, and my reign is not that fast for level single tracks which I am going to be doing these trails mostly for awhile.
Just found a 2008 trance x2 frame/rear shock in great condition for $250, is it worth it? Will it be a good companion to my reign 0?
I ask, because the trance x2 is 5" travel and reign is 6" travel, not a whole lot of variation in travel. I know the geometry is different, so how do they compare?
Trance be a good xc style go anywhere bike that's more efficient than reign and reign handles the other stuff? Or should I just save my money and skip this trance frame idea?
