Well I no longer own the Trance 29 posted several pages back. I've moved onto this plastic Sentinel, which will likely be overkill for most of my local riding but enough for some Whistmas shreddy shred. I'm running it mullet with a 27.5x2.8 in the back because slacker HA is better. Also had to pull put on my 165mm cranks because this bb is looooow once sagged down
The Senti pedals nowhere near as efficient as the Trance even with the shock in firm, but I'm also expecting the bike to absolutely rip up the park. And I dont think there's much of a weight difference compared to my build on the Trance either.
On the geo note, I sized up to a large because I had tried a friend's medium Patrol and found it cramped. The reach is way longer than medium Trance, ETT 10mm longer which I negated with a 10mm shorter stem. Cockpit position feels very good for me and virtually identical to the Trance.
