Thanks. The bike is a bit front heavy, but not so bad that I'd change much.All Mountain said:Nice ride robot. That 36 looks massive on the Trance :thumbsup: Do you use the full travel, and how's the climbing? What does it wiegh?
No, a have the talas 2005 and I think for trance its just enough for 130 mm no need more:thumbsup:rekibtm said:Firebrand , 07 talas or older? wonder if it was a '07 to get a 90, 110, 130 or a 100, 120 , 140, I love my fox vanilla , but I might get a revalation if I can get a good deal on a trance 4to upgrade as I want. the new talas's are suposed to be sick.
Why would you run Stan's strips in rims that are already UST tubeless?? I ran a very similar setup but less air pressure and I weigh 165lbs.manitou2200 said:I just posted this in another thread about weight so here is my take on the fork length.
I have played around with my 05 Trance 1 and I feel that I have it pretty well dialed in for a trail bike (other than the fact that I would like to increase the rear travel to 5-5.5"). Here are the mods I made from the stock spec 05 Trance 1. XO rear derailler and XO Grip shift, Fox Float 130 RL, Easton Monkey Lite riser bar and 100mm EA70 stem, Kenda Nevegal DTC 2.3 front and Nevegal DTC 2.1 rear tires on the Cross Max SL tubless with Stans rim strip and sealant. This bike is a 16", weights around 26.5 lbs and kicks ass!! It climbs harder and steeper terrain (if I have the gas to give it) than any bike I have ridden yet Including my Kona Hot which climbed like a bottle rocket. As for tuning, I weight 140 lbs. and I run 125 lbs in the rear RP3, 6 clicks in on the rebound and mostly in the middle pro pedal spot. In the fork, I run 65 lbs and 5 clicks in on rebound. Check it out and let me know if you have any questions about my set up.
