Hi,

My partner's Giant Terrago Disc MTB (2008) needs the forks (Suntour XTR) replacing, because they're cr*p (and possibly dangerous now!)

I'm looking at getting these:

The spec for the Giant is here, but no details re. steerer size:

How can I tell whether they will fit the giant, ie steerer length etc?

Cheers
Kevin

    Standard 1 1/8" steerer, it will be over 200mm long if it is brand new.

    Just check that it hasn't been cut before you buy.

    1 1/8th diameter and whatever length is required for the build you have.

    there is a FAQ on how to measure the steerer length.
