So I recently purchased a used 2017 trance advanced 0. While swapping the components from my 2017 trance advanced 1 onto this frame I noticed a hairline crack running parallel on the top tube, roughly centered in the bend. I then looked at my old frame and notice a similar size crack in roughly the same area.

Has anyone else seen this? Is this something common on these frames? Should I be worried? Should I take it in and try for warranty?

I just noticed what sounds like the same thing on my 2018 trance advanced 2. I tapped it with a coin and there's no noticeable sound difference. I think and hope it's just a crack in the paint.

What did you end up doing?

Giant replaced my frame with a 2019.

I had the same thing on 3 2016 Anthem frames.

It’s where the final decorative colour layer has been fitted over a stress point. It isn’t a safety issue but Giant will replace them. (I was told to keep riding until a replacement arrived)

If 3 have it, many more will too.

After the 3rd frame Giant swapped my 2016 Anthem Advanced SX for a 2019 Trance 29 Pro 1.

Same happened with my 2018 Trance Advanced. Was told it was nothing to worry about and was able to keep riding until
the warranty replacement arrived.

It is a known issues and Giant have replaced a lot of these without question.
