This type of thing has been my M.O. for at least the past decade or so, while I slogged through eons of post-secondary torture. I've been running 2014 Trances for the last 4 years. First I swapped my medium frame for a large for better fit and sold the medium ($0). Upgrade the dropper to Manic 150, slam the seat forward and over-fork with a IRT Mattoc. I built a wide rim wheel set and added 2.5 WT Minions. Wolf Tooth Goat Link to run 30T x 11-46 Sunrace cassette, on the 10spd SLX setup.  That Trance is a good bike, and it still will be for someone. I FINALLY bought my first new complete bike in 13 years (16 if only counting trail bikes). Geo/fit have changed so much in the past few years, and I wanted to give 29 a try, so got myself a Ibis Ripmo AF (NX version). For the price, it's a great bike, and I'll bet I'm riding that at least 5 years down the road.
