I have the chance to purchase a 2001 Giant ATX 870 Frame that's in immaculate condition. The guy says he put an integrated headset on it from his Giant Rainier. My question is: can I take that headset off and put a regular one on?
Also, a sizing question. I know it depends on the geometry of the bike, but generally speaking I want to know if this bike is too small for me. I'm about 5"8, 150 lbs and the bike is a 14". I generally ride a 17" frame (although I've never ridden anything smaller) and was wondering if 14" would be too small. I do plan to make this an XC race bike and I hear that generally they are supposed to fit a bit small so you can maneouver them.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
Actually it's a Giant 890 frame, not 870, not that it makes a big difference
