    New Trance X frame on way - a few Q's

    Hi.
    I've got a new Trance X frameset on the way.
    Although it comes without a headset (I know!)....

    What kind of FSA headset do I need?
    Do I need the frame faced for BB or is my new XT crankset going to hang nicely?

    Thanks in advance!!!!

    I would make sure about the headset. I've bought three giant framesets (including a trance x) and they all came with headsets. I also put XT cranks right in out of the box. Good luck

    I had mine cheap due to missing headset...

    Did your cranks go straight on - no fussing about with bb etc.? Easy enough?

    [SIZE=2]Yeah the BB goes straight in very easy, I’m running XT BB’s. There is no need to do any facing with Giant.

    [SIZE=2]You’ve got the wrong size, the Trance X definitely has a 30.9 seat post size.
