    hi, i was wondering if anyone knew if a tall crown would be good enough for a giant faith. my shop said they ordered me a short crown also, do i really need it ? oh i am going to be running a e13 direct mount if that says anything :imstupid:

    Tall crowns are for bikes with head tubes longer than 150mm. Short crowns are for bikes with head tubes shorter than 150mm.
    I can't seem to find the length of the Faiths head tube for some reason but this should get you started.

    Hey mate. I had the 07 boxxer teams on my faith and had no troubles with the tall crown. The setup was sweet as!

    I ran a tall crown on my faith with an 04 boxxer. I could have run the shorter crown but I wanted the longer axle to crown length. You should be fine with the short crown though.
