    this probably wont help, I have a trance advanced carbon bike and have just built an anthem team, with spinergy wheels, middleburns, xtr brakes, xt mechs and shifters, fox 80 terralogic forks and it feels just the the same as the trance with a little less travel.After one ride its difficult to say where they differ. It floats over the bumps nicely but suspect it wont be so good on the drops and small jumps. So if its trails you do, go for the trance it has to be more versatile.
