    XT brakes on 2013 reign?

    What model XT brakes do I need to order to fit to my giant reign? do I need adapters or anything?

    prefer black - haven't picked up the bike yet, only ordered it today and are wanting to change out some bits

    thanks

    What model would you like to put on the bike, do you want to put the current model on XT brakes or older model XT brakes?

    do I need adapters or anything?
    Are there any adapters already on the bike?
    Are you changing the the rotors or changing the size of them?

    What brakes are on it and why do you need to change them?

    fitted with the stock Avids, they don't get a good rep.

    haven't got the bike yet, pick it up this weekend so no idea on adapters. Hopefully someone else with a reign can chime in.

    Thinking 203/180 ice techs, current model XT's

    Ride the bike and try the Avid to see if they work for you. If it is the Reign (not Reign X) I would think it would have something like 180/160, can't see the bike being stock with 200/180. Depending on your weight and the type of terrain larger rotors might be required which will require different adapters.

    The new model XTs (M785) are rated very well (not the best in all categories but solid in each) against pretty much anything out there for power, modulation, weight, durability and yet a reasonable cost.

    I might end up going that route on my Reign, but for now have some Avid X0 Trails on the way to me to try out.
