    what's that trance 1 weigh?

    Do any of you have a Giant Trance 1? If so, can you tell me the weight?
    I'm shopping and I don't think lbs has one on the shelf. I'm heading there now though, just to check out a few things.
    Thanks

    Don't know, but over at www.mtbr.com a couple people have complained that the "weight" was a weakness.

    Thanks. Looks like a couple owners said that. The dealer here called Giant and they said it is about 1.5-2 lb heavier than the carbon NRS which I think comes in at 25 or just under. I guess makers don't publish weights because some might fabricate numbers.
    I see one guy at
    HTML Code:
    http://www.mtbr.com/reviews/xc_full_suspension/product_124713.shtml
    built one up with this frame to weigh 25.5 lb.

    I did ride a trance 2 and NRS aluminum. The Maestro suspension is definately cushier and those reviewers seem to think it climbs great.
    I think it will be hard to choose the NRS comp 1, even though it's lighter.

    Here's the Trance 1 specs:
    frame ALUXX Butted aluminum, 4.2" Travel. Available as a Frame Set
    fork Fox FRL, 100mm travel
    shock Fox Float RP3
    shifters Shimano XT
    front derailleur Shimano XT
    rear derailleur Shimano XTR
    brakes Hayes HFX-9 XC, Carbon 6" rotor
    levers Hayes Carbon
    cassette Shimano XT 11-34T, 9 speed
    chain Shimano HG 73
    cranks Race Face Deus Lp X-Type 22/32/44
    BBr Race Face X-Type
    rims Mavic CrossMax SL Disc, 32H
    hubs Mavic CrossMax SL Disc, 32H
    spokes Mavic CrossMax SL
    tires Hutchinson Bulldog MRC AirLight, folding 26x2.1
    handlebar Race Face Deus XC low rise
    stem Race Face Deus XC
    headset FSA Orbit Z, ACB
    seatpost Race Face Next XC Composite, 350x30.9
    saddle WTB Rocket V Stealth

    I'm thinking to trade out the XTR rear and shifters with SRAM X.0 and grip shifters.
    Any fat trimming suggestions?

    I see my questions have been asked and answered before. And I am still on the cusp of a decision NRS vs Trance.
    Lots of factors to consider.
    Thanks for the great reference.
