I just bought a Santa Cruz Hightower, so I'm selling my trusty carbon Giant Trance Advanced 1, size= Large to help defer the cost. I wish I could keep this bike! It's very well maintained and taken care of at Bicycle Warehouse Encinitas. There are some cosmetic issues. I paid ~$5000 brand new and I'm looking to get $2600 for it. It's a great 150mm travel All- Mountain bike. It's set up with an oval Absolute Black 30T chainring, but I have the original Shimano 30T XT chainring if you prefer. Email me for photos. (mike.laptewicz@gmail.com)

New parts:
Lev Integra 150mm dropper (3months old)
New Shimano 10-42 cassette and KMC chain (installed July 10th).
I upgraded the fork to 150mm (entire suspension was service July 10th).
Race Face Atlas Riser bar and Revolution grips.
Swapped the stock Schwalbe Nobby Nics for Maxxis 2.5" Minion DHF (front) and 2.4" High Roller II (rear)
Here's a review of the bike:

If I sell it I will! :) I've had two Trances. Love em! The Hightower is just a better bike.
