    New question here. Help me decide, 06-07 Reign 1 frame. Is it a good buy?

    I found a NOS Reign 1 frame for 500 + shipping. Will it be a good buy? I plan to use parts from my other bike to complete this build.

    I also noted that the new reigns don't have the rear shocks sticking out of the downtubes. Was this a bad design on the old reign?

    I don't know if it's a good buy I bought one from Wheelworld(local buy only no online) for $399. Now 5 years later a NOS for $500+shipping?

    I'll pass on that.

    +1. Be patient, save a little more cash, and don't be a bike snob. There are some great bike outside of the major manufactures.

    Ha, I did the same deal & still have mine as a backup. Thing is, there aren't any deals like that presently.
    For the original poster, I'd pay a little less especially if it's sporting that original manitou swinger shock, & check the bearings without the shock in place if you can.
    Other than that, a solid frameset

    The frame comes with a Fox RP2, FSA integrated HS. Price dropped to 450...

    @Being a bike snob Quite the opposite actually. My "stable" is a mish mash of brands. If it rolls I'll ride it. I could care less for HA angles, rolling resistance, etc. At the moment I am looking at a couple of NOS pre-07 Konas, Jamis XAM, BL Illuminati (Least liked. No warranty, no shocks), and some Haros. All of which are in the 250- 450 range. Or cheaper.

    Again thanks for your input.
