The bolted Giant seat clamp that came on the Trance isn't great. Many mountain bikers swear by Hope seat clamps. So this £17.50 Hope seat clamp is now installed and working wonderfully. Hope beautifully CNC machines their seat clamps and have a wide range of colours including this Gun Smoke version. The only slight problem is that Giant has chosen to face the seat clamp slot backyards which is not a big problem but tends to result in a lot of mud going down the seat tube.
Rock, ice, and water.
