But what about the Giant proprietary steerer tube tapered size? It is a bolt on mod?The Trance is a great frame: light, climbs and pedals well, and descends great. However, If you have a little money to upgrade, sell the 32 Talas fork that comes with that. It's really a poor choice by Giant, and upgrade to either a Fox Float 34 140mm, or if you want the bike to be more aggressive, you could go with a 150mm. I got 150 Pike on mine, and it is super capable downhill, while still pedaling great.
