Hello,

I picked up a Medium Trance X frame and I'm trying to determine if 1250mm of hose for the rear brake is enough? Eyeing it with a tape measure, it looks close, was wondering if someone with a medium Trance X might be able to measure there hose and report how long it is.

Thanks!
-Ron

I have medium (18") trance (non X) and run a 1300mm kit. Sorry I can't say for the X series but I hope it helps anyways. I could get away w/ the 1250mm but it would be tighter than I care for.

Thanks for the info Zach. I sent the bike shop the same question as well, hopefully they can tell me yes or no on whether they have setup that length of line on the Trance X.

Let me know what you find out. I made a post on craigslist and have a frame from Bob's coming my way as well. My current set is 1250 as well.

Bicycle-Bob's in Boise? Did you mail order it?

I decided to hold off on getting hydraulic brakes since I wasn't sure if the short hose would work or not. Decided to just get some nice cables for my bb7's and be done with it. You'll probably get your frame before I get my cables in, but if you haven't received the frame by mid next week I will let you know how much cable I use for the bbs. Good luck.

Yes I got it at bob's but it was a pain to find someone wiling to go in and sign for it to be shipped. I had to hire a "friend."

Hose length = 1500mm

I just measured my wife's. It is 1500mm but looks like a 1400mm would do the job. I have 1350mm from my anthem that I am going to try.

Sweet! There will be two new Trance X0's in the santa clarita hills soon :)
Actually, I moved. I'm in San Antonio now. I'll be visiting So Cal and doing some riding in about 2 weeks. Hopefully, I'll be able to bring the new Trance.
