    Giant trials team for AM riding?

    This is a street trials frame, the geometry is different from XC frame. the headtube angle is more straigle, the bb is higher and the rear end is shorter.
    does it suitable for AM with 160 fork? thanks~

    leave it at short travel? sure. i'd probably not stick more than an 80mm or so fork on there, or the geometry will be really, really screwy for trail riding. maybe a nice rigid fork.

    it ought to be tough enough to ride trails, but not with a fork as tall as you want. sure, trials frame stend to be burly, but the toughness and geometry are designed around much, much shorter forks.

    I would put a stwenith mark four interload system in the back pivot and run a large canadian goose type creature half way from here to britain and back.Thats my opinion anyway.
