Just pulled the trigger on a Trance frame
« on: September 08, 2007, 03:29:34 PM »
Now comes the fun part, specing it out and making it mine kinda like Frankenstien(Harr Arr Arr it's alive) only faster. Having always relied on my LBS for even the most simple of tweaks can you guys recommend any books or resources to enlighten me.

What do you plan on specing it out with? 

This should get you started:

It is a 2005 trance 1 frame. Looks like it may have been a warranty item as the rear triangle is new as are the bearings. I will probably be pulling parts from the Anthem to put on the trance such as the crank, xt shifters, lx front and xt rear derailers as I plan to upgrade the Anthem to sram shifters and rear derailer and going xt on the front derailer and crank. I am pretty happy with the hayes 9's and will probably just duplicate that setup. Looking for some nuclear proof wheels and either a reba or float fork.

congrats, you should enjoy the experience. i think the only things you might need the LBS for it to install the bottom bracket, and cassette. Your frame should come with a Headset. The rest is just tinkering around till you find the right setting.

The tools for installing a bottom bracket and cassette are relatively cheap and can be had for easily under $40 total and will serve you well for a long time.  Personally, I'd say the only thing you'd really want the LBS to do is install the headset as a proper headset press can be expensive and you'd rarely use it.

Luckly the head set is installed already. I do plan to do my own BB and crank install as I want to be able to a routine service of the BB (fresh grease).
