Submitted by Sandra Sayers a Cross Country Rider from Wellington, New Zealand

Date Reviewed: October 26, 2007

Strengths:    Handles like a dream.
Not a great technical rider - this bike has given be alot more confidence.
Fast on the down hills.

Weaknesses:    Little heavy (but get what you pay for).

Bottom Line:   
Known in NZ as a Cypher (equivalent to guys Trance X2).

Never owned a F/S bike before, best bike I have ever owned. Love the confidence I now have and especially love being able to bet my husband's hard tail on the down hills.

Really like the anodised finish, hopefully will help conceal a few of the accidents I am bound to have.

Great bike suited to all levels of riders.

Anyone own/ridden the 2015 Trance Advanced 2?

Looking to get a new 140mm bike, and the Trance Advanced 2 is looking like the best candidate at the moment. I have test ridden the alloy 2015 Trance 2, but not the Adv version, and just wondering if anyone has actually ridden it, and how it compares with the alloy version? Worth the extra cash?Read More »

2015 Trance Advanced 27.5 1 or Trance 27.5 SX?

Hey all, I have narrowed my next purchase down to one of these two and need some opinions, since it appears that there is not going to be an SX carried at any shop in my state any time soon for me to test, though I should get to try out the Advanced 1 here in a few weeks. Most people seem to agree ... Read More »

2014 Trance 27.5 1 fork air pressure?

I'm trying to figure out which model year Talas came on this bike. The 2014 model's suggested air pressure is nearly double that of the 2013 models. I'm assuming the 2014 Trance came with the 2013 fork?Read More »
