metaldork,

I had them and really liked them. They made my NRS a lot more plush, but they steepened the head tube a little bit. Bumping my fork up to 4" solved this and I was much happier with my NRS on the whole. I ran the bike mostly in the 4.5" setting (with a little sag) and it still rode pretty efficiently, but the brake-jacking was more pronounced. I say it's worth it.

hmmm, dunno. It might. You should call Giant. My guess is that it doesn't add much stress to the frame, but it's Giant's call, not mine...
