Giant Trance Advanced 1 - Review
I've got a new 2017 Trance 1.5 LTD "L size" few months ago. My notes: - the stock tyres (Nobby Nic performance) roll really well, but lack grip - replace them for any serious downhill stuff - tubeless setup works great (split tube method), with tape it is hard to get the tape to conform to the rim because of the rim shape (Tesa 4289 tape) - fork will only work good if sag is set to 30% of travel, less than that = no small bump compliance, impossible to use all travel - climbing is only good with the shock lever in the middle possition (= half locked compression), in the open position the bike bobs as hell and is only good on downhills) - the shock is not a common size/mount - will see if in the future there will be a better option on the market (probably not) - the stock seat is hard as hell - I ditched the thing for something more confortable after a few weeks of trying to adapt - the chain jumped gears few times (3) in the gap between the space between the small cog and frame - going downhill, shifting few gears at a time, otherwise the shiftig works OK, adjusted B screw - will see if things will improve - grips are small and slippery (without gloves)
