Just a bit of Info, for anyone wanting to fit Shimano's 11 speed system to a Giant Trance X0 2008 ( and other trances of the year?)

using the standard raceface cranks, i fitted a raceface 30t front chainring ( bolts that held the triple rings were fine)

fitted a new Mech hanger, then fitted a XT 11-42 cassette, XT mech SGS ( long) XT shifter , and HG901 Chain

using Hope Bottom bracket with 2 spacers drive side and one left side

no chain line issues using Hope rear wheel, chain does not come off the 42t ring on cassette, whilst back pedal

hope this helps someone!
