Quick question for the Giant gurus. Rider size 5'7" in socks with a 30.75" inseam. Trance frame 16" or 18". Prefer a 100 mm stem. Thanks in advance.

I'm gonna say a 16".

I'm about 5' 11" and I'm on a 18" frame from Giant. Although I've ridden smaller 16" frames before. It would be better to go a tad smaller that too big. With a little smaller frame, you'll have some room to move the bike around beneath you while riding.

Best advice, go to a local Giant Dealer and sit on some bikes. That's the best way to really find out.

Hey, got a quick quetion. I'm 5'6" around 140lbs, 80cm inseem. I own two giants (one road and an old hardtail) and they're both too small. I dont wanna make the same mistake buying my trance. Input on a 16" or 18" Trance would be awesome.
