2011 Giant Trance X Advanced SL 0

2011 Trance X ALUXX frame

For 2011, Giant made a few changes to their Trance X Advanced SL frameset. The top tube is straight, so the frame loses a bit of weight. It’s a bit stiffer and get a slacker heat tube angle.

Other improvements include an OverDrive tapered head tube and MegaDrive, rectangular ultra-oversized, down tube.

  1. This is not a advanced frame. It is a alloy frame. Look at the welds on the head tube top tube down tube junction.

    1. No worries.
      I work in a Giant shop and I am eagerly awaiting the new Advanced SL0. I have the 2010 Advanced SL0 and it is amazing. The difference from the 2009 Trance X0 that I had last year is night and day. The new 2011 SL0 is supposed to be lighter than the 2010 and that is amazing as well because a 24.5 pound 5″ travel bike is rare.

      1. I know. There is some MTBing here in Taiwan, but in all honesty, not as much as I’d like, which is why I’m on a road bike most of the time. I know that a few shops organize some off road tours, and I’ll probably take the Trance X on a ride.
