About Seatstay Kits
New for 2019 are Seatstay Tuning Kits, available as part of GG's new Modular Frame Platform. These Seatstay Kits allow you to convert your bike from one model to another*, "tuning" your bike for different terrain, without having to buy a whole new bike.
You can use this kit to convert your current bike* to the Trail Pistol. Click More Options to find the necessary parts needed to complete your Modular Frame swap, plus additional customization components that you may want or need.
*Assuming you already have one of the 2019 GG bikes with the Modular Frame Platform.
The Tuning Kit includes all hardware necessary to install on your GG Modular Frame, including:
- Derailleur hanger and bolt
What's Not Included?
Generally, what's not included are the parts you need to remove anyways in order to swap components (e.g. axle and frame hardware) or that aren't removed in the first place (e.g. rocker). Also, any necessary components will need to be purchased with the kit (e.g. shock, fork).
If switching between wheel sizes, we recommend getting an additional lower cup for your GeoAdjust Headset. The Short Lower Cup is designed to be used with 29 front-ends; the Tall Lower Cup is designed to be used with 27.5 and 27.5 Plus front-ends.
Other things to consider:
- Do you have the correct shock size?
- Do you have a 29" fork? The Trail Pistol is designed to work with 29er forks with 120-140 mm travel
- Do you need a 29" wheelset?
- Do you need 29" tires?
- Make wheel swapping quick and easy by ordering tires, rotors, and cassettes.
We'll go ahead and install any of the components on your order so you can hit the trail sooner. This includes tubeless tire setup, cassette, and rotor installation.

As the "Singletrack Flyer," the Trail Pistol is designed to explore miles of endless singletrack with its efficient pedalling platform and rally the descents with its stiff chassis, progressive leverage curve, and playful geometry. The Trail Pistol allows you to keep in mind what is really important: riding fast and having fun--but remember the lessons of Sid Vicious: safety third, not fourth.
