    2015 Glory 27.5 2 - New fork steer tube and taper questions

    Apologies in advance for what's probably an easy thing to find... I have a 2015 Glory 2, and I'd like to replace the fork. I just want to make sure I'm buying the right parts. Here's the bike:

    https://www.giant-bicycles.com/us/glory-27dot5-2-2015

    The website only says "HEADSET: Integrated sealed cartridge bearing", and doesn't list the size/taper/etc. I'm looking at a Boxxer, which has a Straight to 1-1/8 taper.

    Will this fit my bike? Or do I need a new headset altogether? I found a thread on PB that says the 2014 Glory is 44/56, but I'm not sure if that's the same for 2015. I'm trying to figure out:

    - If a Boxxer will fit my bike
    - If I need a new headset, and if so, which one?

    Thanks in advance!

    In case anyone finds this via a search, the Boxxer is a direct swap for the Domain with nothing extra required. Just had to move the crown race over.

    Yes the Domain and the Boxxer seem to be very closely related indeed.
    I did the same swap on my 2016 Glory, but couldnīt figure out how to get the crown race off the Domain.
    So I ended up just swapping the steerer tube part over. Seems to be the exact same part.
    Only the Boxxer one has BOXXER printed on it.
    Springs are supposedly also identical if you look at the parts catalog.

    If anyone knows how to order the correct crown race Iīd be grateful, though.
