2015 Giant Trance Frame With 2014 Trance Fork Od2

Postby Nate1 on Thu 30/Jul/15 1:20pm

Hello I'm trying to workout whether I need a new fork for a 2015 trance sx frame, I have a 2014 trance sx frame med that I would like to upgrade to large, I was reading that all giant od2 or not can fit the od2 forks. From a pink bike are article

Is this correct? Is this still correct?

As far as I'm aware they dropped that overdrive 2 stuff a few years back now (maybe 2012/13?)and have reverted back to overdrive 1 (which is just a standard taper).

Edit - looks like the 2014 has got it, so if you want to use it with the 2015 you'll be up for a new CSU or you might be able to track down a headset? (could be difficult considering its no longer around)

You only need the top half of the headset, hopefully if its the same diameter you could bring it over to your new frame?

Just to clarify, you're wanting to swap your fork from a 2014 Giant with OD2 onto a 2015 Giant with OD? You'll be fine. The OD and OD2 head tubes are the same, but you'll need to switch over the upper headset, stem and spacers to your 2015 frame. Same goes if you want to sell the 2014 fork, you'll have to sell it with the headset, stem and spacers.

Yes, basically all/most running gear (Including Fork) from 2014 Trance (Od2) - To 2015 Trance frame (OD).

Thanks that's helpful,

By the way, if you're running your cables internally on the 2015 SX frame, make sure you zip tie the cables under the bottom bracket to the chain guide mounting holes where the cables exit the frame. It's probably the same with the 2014 model, where the cables rub against the BB casing and gouges out the aluminium over time.

Thanks - will do - I just checked the current frame and is doing that, even though the cabling is quite rigid.
