Time to move on my Trance to make way for something else. It’s a large 2017 Trance 2,  I’m the first owner having bought it new.

Spec is stock apart from the following upgrades:
-dvo topaz rear shock. Noticeable increase in traction when I fitted this. Nicely tunable with adjustable bladder pressure, positive and negative spacers. Original fox dps also supplied.
-Dt swiss m1900 rear wheel. New hub bearings.
-Brand x dropper & lever 150mm
-wtb volt saddle
-fabric fun guy grips
-magic Mary front, dhr2 3c rear

Good points:
-frame bearings, shock and fork all done last October. I bought a house in November and a new bike in January so these are all still very fresh having seen little use.
-cranks and ring replaced summer 2020. Slx 175mm as originally specced.

Bad points:
-right hand fork stanchion has the lightest scratch. You really have to be looking to notice it. Can’t be felt with your finger nail. I inquired if it was an issue when the forks were serviced and was told not to worry.
-saddle rails are slightly twisted from messing up a jump. Never bothered me enough to replace.
-usual scuffs from being a 4 or 5 year old mtb. A few paint chips on the rear triangle. Nothing egregious.

Overall I’d say it’s in good condition other than the points highlighted. It’s been heli-taped from day one, this is now looking a little tatty and lifting in a few spots. I’ve loved owning this bike and have been pretty slow to get around to selling it.

Please note the pedals will be removed before sale.

I’m after £800 for it but open to reasonable offers. Heavy preference towards collection from Abergavenny, South Wales. Could maybe drive an hour or so.

Thanks for looking
