I really wish people/manufacturers would check their sites to make sure whoever deals with them puts up the correct specs. I'm getting a Trance3 and in looking at the specs they list a RS DUKE SC, I searched all over but didn't find a thing. IN the image you can clearly se it's a DUKE XC. The other thing is the brakes are listed as Hayes SOLE, searched for them too - no such thing. I finally decided it might be a good idea to check the Hayes site and found out the prob mean Hayes so1e Hydraulics.

If anyone is reading this from GIANT or a dealer please pass this along, it doesn't take a sh*t load of time to just check your own web site when new products are listed to make sure they're listed right.

Actually the Hayes Sole do exist. They are the OEM, low end, hydraulic disc brakes that hayes is offering for 05. We have a couple on our bikes at my work. Its on the Marin Palisades Trail. The lever looks like the HFX 9 but the caliper looks a bit bulky. Havent treid it out though, so wont comment on that. But yeah there has been some typos on that site.

Thanks for the heads up on those brakes, guess the PDF manual I DLd today for the so1e's isn't any use then :rolleyes: Hope they at least work 1/2 decent :confused:

It sure is a pain when component manufacturers make special stuff for OEM. I'm looking at a Trance 1 and I can't figure out what adjustements are on the Fox fork. I wish they would just use their normal products.

Cheers!

I think that Fox fork is going to be your Fox Float with the rebound and lockout adjustment. Kinda werid how they called it the "Fox FRL"
