- Giant Trance 29er 2014 Bottom Bracket
shimano BB91 with the 2.5mm spacer fitted. http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/shimano-bb91-mtb-press-fit-bottom-bracket/rp-prod44225
This is what I have fitted to my Trance 29er. Only had it a couple of months. Bought as a frame and built it up. It’s replaced my Orange 5 and I haven’t regretted it yet.
PM me if you have any other questions.

Thanks chip,, just received the frame this afternoonPosted 4 years ago
I bought the 2014 frame only, I hope to finish the build this weekend. Did you route the rear brake cable inside the frame. My frame has got also clips under the tube. I found difficult to insert 2 cables in the same place.
What’s the spec on your build? Looks nice
Looking at doing a build with the same 2013 frame as yours..
What size frame did you get? I’ve got an anthem 2009 26er medium, which is a perfect size for me being 5’9″ inside leg of 31″Posted 4 years ago
Hoping you have a medium or a small, If you do can you measure the stand over height please?
I’ve a large frame, I’m 6ft. I’ve got X-fusion Trace fork at 120mm. Stans ZTR Arch Ex rims on Hope Evo 2 hubs. Reverb, 70mm Nukeproof warhead stem with Renthal Fatbar. XT cranks with double set up. XT rear shadow plus mech, Hans Dampf front and Ardent rear both set up tubeless.

Thanks again.. I was planning on getting last year’s dual sid revelation RCT3 140mm travel, 20mm maxel.
(option of fitting a 20mm spacer)
I googled your x-fusion fork and noticed it’s has 34mm legs.
Was one of the reasons you choose the fork because it’s a 34mm rather than 32mm? I’m wondering if the revelation might be to flexy?
Although the a 34mm fork is likely to cost me at a guess £200 more than the revs £314 price tag.
I had a pair of Rev RCT 3 on my Orange 5, and while they were a good fork and I thought they were reasonably stiff, the 34mm Trace feels a bit more direct and less bounced off line in the rough stuff, and that’s with a 29″ wheel over a 26″. I was wondering if 120mm travel would be enough, and after riding Laggan black yesterday on it, I can say it is plenty and shouldn’t require more than that. It turns really sweetly at 120mm. I think if you fit a Rev you won’t be disappointed, and as you say, you can drop it internally if you feel the need.Posted 4 years ago
Nuke, your correct, they’re 127mm travel on the rear. A 120mm fork is apparently the sweet spot travel for the front, but some folk are running upto 140mm with no probs. unsure of the frame weight, but my whole bike feels lighter than the Orange 5 it replaced, haven’t had it on the scales yet.Posted 4 years ago
