Hi. First post here and also looking my 1st DS bike.

I have a budget of $2000. Im looking at the Giant Trance range.

I can get from my LBS a 2014 Trance 27.5 2, I have also found a near new (apparently never ridden) 2012 Trance X0 for the same price, in a local classified add.

So which one should I go with??
27.5 vs 26 inch, 2014 vs 2012... and the main question upper spec "0" vs lower "2" spec.

thanks

The 0 is the better bike. There is not enough of a difference between 27.5 and 26 to make that a deciding factor. The biggest issue is will you want a warranty or not.

The difference for me is not the component spec or even the wheel size, but the wheel size mixed with the new geometry. If you want a classic MTB with good components get the 2012. If you want more of an All Mountain shred machine get the 2014. It really comes down to riding style.
