    Giant Trance Frame Size and Cockpit Setup

    Hey, first-ever post here. I may be breaking some "rules," but, hey, isn't that what life is for?

    Anyway, I'm about 5'9" and 1/2 with a 33" inseam (long-legged) and I have a 2018 Giant Trance 3. It has a 17" seat tube length and 24" ETT length. I went with the medium size, as I was kind of in between frame sizes. I just ordered a 20mm rise, 800mm-wide renthal fatbar (35mm diameter) and a 40mm truvativ descendant stem (35mm clamp diameter) to fit the renthal.

    Parts should be in this week, and I'm itching. Just wondering what people's thoughts were on this cockpit setup considering I'm on the taller end of the spectrum for the Trance's medium frame. But I do lots of DH and freeriding, as well as tight, flowing singletrack here in the Northeast, so I like the control of the smaller size. However, I also do lots of climbing to earn my DH sections. Just looking for thoughts.

    Don't worry too much about the sizing, you're appropriately sized for a medium! I really doubt it'll feel small. Especially with 800's, you'll feel like it's roomy.
