Trance X2

I am looking at possibly purchasing a Giant Trance X2 but I was wondering if the trances frame and components would be able to handle the occasional small jump/drop. I weigh about 170lbs.
Thanks

with 5" of travel, it will handle most anything you can find. Unless your jumping off of 10 foot cliffs.

If you're concerned, just get a Reign. It's more beefy (read: drops, jumps) than the Trance

the trance wasnt built to be taken off large jumps/drops, but, the occasional jumps/drops wont hurt it at all; it can take a lot of abuse. if you're worried about it breaking get the reign

My Trance X2 is still in good shape.
