    My Dream 07 Giant Trance 1. Complete Upgrade!

    Well I have finally completed my Dream Trail Bike. I ended up buying a 2007 Giant Trance 1 and completely stripping it down to the frame. There are few components that I kept for this build, which really only includes the Reba Fork.

    So people might ask why I just didn't buy the frameset. This year's frame only was a black and silver frame. After owning 3 black bikes i decided I could not buy another one. For this bike I decided that carbon is king and I am trying to outfit it in as much carbon as possible.

    Here are the Spec's:

    Frame: 2007 18" Giant Trance 1
    Fork: Rock Shox Reba Race
    Shock: Fox Float RP2
    Handlebar: Truvatic Carbon Team 31.8
    Stem: Bontrager X Lite
    Seatpost: Truvativ Carbon Team Double Clamp post
    Saddle: WTB Devo Team
    Pedals: Wellgo Magnesium Platforms
    Shifters: 2007 Shimano XTR
    Front Derailleur: Shimano XT
    Rear Derailleur: 2007 Shimano XTR
    Brakes: 2008 Avid Juicy Carbons
    Cassette: Shimano XT
    Chain: Shimano HG-73
    Cranks: Truvativ Team Noir Carbon w/ TNT finish
    Rims: Mavic SL
    Hubs: Mavic SL
    Tires: Hutchinson Barracuda (front) and Python (rear)


    Carbon Shock Guard
    Carbon Giant Cage
    Cateye Strada Wireless Computer
    Carbon Chainstay Protector

    All said and done this thing weighs 26.5 pounds.

    As of right now there are a couple of upgrades that I am going to eventually do.

    Swap Out:

    Rock Shox Reba Fork - 2008 Fox Talas RLC
    Bontager X Lite Stem - Bontrager XXX Carbon Stem
    Wellgo Mag Pedals - XTR Clipless Pedals
    WTB Devo Team Seat - ?? Not Sure yet ?? (open to suggestions)
    Hutichinson Tires - ?? Not Sure yet ?? (open to suggestions)
