    Yep. The Trek one is about 2 generations behind the Giant one. Still better to buy a reverb or Lev if you want something that wouldn't fuck up after one ride in somewhat damp conditions.

    Trek's going to get more warranties with this post than their carbon frames do using BB90/95.

    They do it in the hope that you'll be curious enough to look further for the internal width, thus investing more time looking at their product which increases your emotional attachment, which increases your chance of buying it.

    Giant dropper is pretty bloody good though, simple cable actuated gas strut dropper. Can't really service it, but there cheap enough to replace after a couple of years at <$300 a pop, and thats lbs prices.

    Great dropper for the price.

    And as for bike, get a reign. Great bikes for the coin, and the rct3 pike is the better fork. Travel adjust sucks and you won't need it, the reign climbs well enough without, and low bb's dont want a lower front end when cliver tech.

    I totally agree about the travel adjust sentiment vs low bb...

    It is. That's why when I got my Remedy this year, I ordered in a Drop-Line to see if it was the same.....

    Wish Giant made it in more seatpost sizes.
