    Let's see those AM setups-10356164_949098224515_6635320962391359368_n-1-.jpg

    Just purchased the 2015 Reign 2. Haven't had a chance to get her on the trails yet so i'm a little anxious.

    Just got done building up my "dying breed" 26in Xprezo Super-D. Sorry for the potato pic. I know the GD is ugly, but reliability wins any day.

    29.5# with "real" tires, pedals, etc.
    X-prezo Super-D, 26in style.

    GDs are ugly, but I've yet to meet a rider who pedals looking down at his/her crotch. All those other dropper post owners must be glad their non-GDs are nice to look at when they're packing them up for repairs instead of riding...

    GD boot is ugly, take it off, look way better without the boot.
    I removed mine long ago, the post is still working fine.

    The trails around here (eastern NC) are about to become mud bogs for the better part of the next 4 months. Not worth the extra maintenance for the looks. That is the whole point of the GD in my eyes. If I were in a dryer area, I would be bootless for sure.

    I see your vivid shock is mounted the other way compared to mine, have you tried mounting it the other way? Is there any difference on handling or performance?

    Thanks Shredman69!

    Loving my Derbies... It is by far the most solid wheel I've had! Front tire grips better on fast turns due to the large contact patch between tire and ground where if it was on my usual narrow wheel, it may have washed out resulting in a crash.

    I'm from Las Vegas, NV and the trails I usually hit are dry, loose or rocky so results may vary depending on trail condition and rider input.

    I'm running Industry 9 torch hubs and spokes.

    Ride on!

    Nice! I9's look great. I thought that's what they were. Wide carbon rims are awesome! I have wide LB carbons laced to Hope's and I got the same results. Stiffer wheels, large air volume lets you run lower pressure, (I run tubeless) and they have a bigger contact patch, so more traction.

    Man I really wish Kenda would lighten up their tires... I know if it wasn't for that much material the tire wouldn't be so effective. Other than weight I loved the nevegals but I had to leave it because of all that reason...

    awesome enduro! If I wasn't such a Knolly fan, that would have been my next bike.

    Re: Let's see those AM setups


    Well it's more of a DH bike than AM bike anymore, but a whole lot of fun to ride. Haven't climbed on it yet sense putting the 888 on the front. I think the suffering to go up will be well worth it once I hit the DH

    cry a lot, then forget on the trail is usually how bike purchases work.

    Wife/gf goes: "babe why don't we have anything in the fridge?"

    We go: "oh we can't eat for a whole month, buts its okay cause i got a mtb." hahaha

    Yeah, for me it's Wife: "Why don't we replace that 14 year old 4runner with something newer. Damn thing stinks like a locker room"....I'm like "Eh, um, well...it runs just fine and I'll clean it already! (with irritated indignant voice)".
