I still love my 2016 Trance Advanced 1.

I see absolutely no reason to change the bike. It handles everything I throw at it perfectly fine!

Hi! I have a Giant Trance 27.5 2016 and I want to put tubeless on it. What is the rim width of the wheels that come with the bike? 20mm, 23mm, 25mm... I don't know. I need to know so I know what tread width to buy.

Thank you.

are your stock rims tubeless ready?
a 2.3" tyre would fit all those size rims

I've got the same bike and I wasn't able to convert to tubeless on the stock rims

I was told that it was possible... this is the tire.


With this kit, can't I convert it to tubeless?


Thanks!!

taking that blue rim tape off and wrapping gorilla tape around the rim is what most people do to bodge a DIY tubeless setup.

Can I just say that I regret ever having used Gorilla Tape to go tubeless. I did it for years. Yes it works, it's cheap, but it because a problem down the road once sealant gets under it and or the tire bead lifts a side of it up. It's a bitch to get off, it leaves adhesive.

If you really don't have the money, go for it, but otherwise, a proper roll of rim tape is worth the money, in my humble opinion.

2018 Trance 2. It’s finally done. Haven’t given it a proper test yet but hoping to get a few rides in this coming week. The only stock part left is the frame. Even the bearings were changed out. Main components: Fox Factory 36 with the Grip2 VVC damper, Fox DHX2 with SLS spring, Fox transfer post, WorksComponents Angleset, Raceface Atlas crankarms, Wolftooth oval chainring, Raceface BB, Hunt Trailwide 27.5 wheels, Renthal Stem and Fatbar carbon bars, Shimano Deore brake components, and Maxxis Minion DHF in the front and Aggressor in the rear. Ready for some beautiful SoCal trails!

how far did you go with your angleset?
i got a 1 degree on mine right now but was considering trying a 1.5 or 2 degree
Did you keep your fork at 150mm or did you bump up the travel?
