    I’m looking at treating myself to a new bike, and I’m after an all day bike rather than a hooning bike, so I’m thinking short travel FS. Budget is also a factor, so I’m looking at either a Trance 3 or Mongoose Cannaan comp from last year. Erring on the side of the Canaan at the moment as it has arguably a better spec, but more importantly a slightly longer top tube and a slightly slacker head angle so it probably won’t be as nervous on the downs. Anyone care to offer an opinion on either?

    Paul’s Cycles have a mega cheapo Trance 3 in small only.

    Pk-ripper on here is selling two Trance’s cheapish. Contact him. Be careful mind, if you make a positive-noise the Sicilian in him will demand a blood down payment 😉

    JOKE PK!

    Yeah, it’s Paul’s I’m looking at. I’m pretty small (max 5’8" if I stand up straight!), so 16" is good for me. Think PK’s are mediums IIRC

    could go with a trance 3 and some 120 ish forks to slacken it off a little bit when youve got some spare change.

    Ditto Trance again, got one myself and it’s fantastic.

    Sell the 100mm forks and replace immediately. 120mm Reba with maxle would be a great match.
