    Burly 6point build weight!

    Just weighed my bike for the first time!

    39.6 pounds. Thats with a 66SL, a Maxxis Mobster 2.7 front tire (1320g), Panaracer fire FR 2.4 rear (870g), Very heavy platform clipless pedals. DT Swiss 6.1 rims with OEM hubs. Marzocchi ROCO TST with Ti coil. FSA gap crankset.

    Very heavy parts on other words.

    I'd weigh it again.
    I'd have to guess that your components are less burly than mine. My front tire weighs a pound heavier than the back tire and I have heavy duty tubes in the tires. They can add over a pound easily. I am running a coil shock albeit Ti. My Shimano 645 dx pedals weigh over a pound. My DT swiss 6.1 rims are heavy (620g/1.36lbs each). Fork is only .5lbs lighter than a 66RC2X so not a huge gain for you there. I run a 83mm heavy crankset and my rear hub is 150mm x 12mm.
    I researched frame weights and it looks like the Reign X frame is the same or heavier than the 6point8 frame.

    So you must have a much lighter parts spec than mine. The 6point8 stock build from IH weighs 34.3 pounds, add the 1 pound the 66RC2 adds and that would be 35.3lbs.
    All my parts except fork and shock came off of a 06' 7point5.

    So I could definitely lower the weight alot but the coil shock rules and I am happy to have the dual-ply tire on the front.

    As I replace broken/wornout parts I will lighten up some things but I doubt I will ever get below 38lbs. Heavyduty tubes/tires are just too important for the terrain I ride.

    Edit; I think I figured it out. It must be the extra .3 inches of travel I have.
    Or the LBS' scale was wrong but it feels like 40lbs.

    Here's another riders Reign X setup and weight from RideMonkey:
    2007 Giant Reign X review

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So I’ve been on this thing for about a month now, and figured it was time to give a review. Still need to ride it in a few more places to get a full feel for it, and need to get the suspension dialed a bit better.

    Spec:
    Reign X frame 18” (built up from frameset only)
    Marz ’06 66 sl @170mm
    DHX 3.0 coil
    Azonic Headlock
    Bontrager Earl wheelset
    Planet X Stem
    Easton EA70 bars 685mm
    Lizard Skins lock on grips
    Sram x.7 shifters
    Sram x.7 rear derailleur
    Deore front derailleur
    Avid Juicy 5 brakes
    Giant internal headset
    Truvativ Holzfeller crankset
    Truvativ Howitzer BB
    Crank Bros Mallet C pedals
    E.13 DRS
    WTB Speed V seat
    Bontrager Select seatpost
    Shimano crap cassette
    Hutchinson Barracuda 2.3 front tire
    Hutchinson Piranha 2.3 rear tire

    Misc Measurements:

    Frame weight: 9.0 Lbs exactly with shock (no headset)
    BB height: 13.8"
    Wheelbase: almost 45.5" exactly

    Weight: a hefty 38.8 lbs

    Air shocks and AM build vs. coil shock and FR build seems to equate to about 4lbs on these bikes. it's funny, your fr version 6points and Reign X's are heavier than my DH bike!

    Actually, i'd really love to have a spare longer stroke CCDB and Totem, for some rides that would be the sick setup, 13.8 bb, 7 inches of travel....

    Good job! Another 7" Path conversion

    My new Path 7" 6point6 conversion:


    And its first on-trail action, on Chiquito, courtesy of Winston:




    It's super plush w/ a Totem up front and a pushed DHX (loaner from the shop while my Roco TST is on order), and pedals *really* well for a ~39 pound bike.

    Already has a few bumps & bruises on it, but none on me! The only fall I took was blamed on my Sidis and wet rocks while trying to get into position to take some pictures. :)

    New 6 point here.

    I bought the bike on closeout and just used the frame.

    Fox Van RC2 fork
    Old school Van RC rear shock 8.5x2.5
    Juicy's
    Headset extender from enduro. (Thanks to those who mentioned this.)

    The headset extender and the 8.5 rear shock give the bike a 66.5 HA and a 13" B.B. height.

    Geo feels great to me. I never tried it stock.

    Very NICE !

    Great setup and the geo looks absolutely perfect !

    How does the old school Fox RC work on it ? I have one as well but I need to get the right spring for it. Any pedal smacking with the BB being that low ?

    I got my 6point4 right after Christmas, its awesome! I swaped out the forks w/ my old Domains, ordered a DHX 5.0 (w/2.75" stroke) for the rear, then swaped out a few other parts from my old bike. I'll post some pics up as soon as my shock comes in.

    hey BLABLABLA sick setup. I got one of those extenders too,still don't know if I need to use it or not, but was wondering what did you use to remove the internal bottom headset cup?

    6 Point

    Here my new 6 Point !

    It weighs 34# with the following mods:

    XT cassette
    Hutchinson Barracuda lite tires 2.35 + Light tubes (for trail)
    Marzochhi 55 TST
    Wellgo Magnesium pedals
    Gravity lite crank arms
    FSA isis BB
    Husselfelt stem and bars
    SDG seat and Post
    Enduro Headset extender
    ....Awaiting a stinger dual chain guide

    I also modified the DHX-air on my 6point by adding plastic inside the outer sleeve to take up the extra air space. Here is the link to the modification: DHX air upgraded with the RP3 air sleeve The shock has way more mid stroke support now and doesn't blow through the travel anymore. This should help greatly with pedal smacking. I did this to my Bottle Rocket last year to help with bottom resistance and it worked amazingly well. The difference in the shock is much more noticable on the 6 Point DHX though because the outer air sleeve on the 6 point is much larger than the Bottle rocket DHX air sleeve as shown in the first picture. I should be able to get some rides in tommorow to test it out some more. The snow is just starting to melt !

    6 Point 7

    Well here it is almost done, awaiting a chain guide and a few other bits, but pretty much done. The sale RS Cycle had on the 6.4s seems to have prompted a few last minute purchases.

    TZ - is that a Totem on your 6point. How does the bike feel in terms of head angle. I have mine with the 2007 RC2X 180mm and still feels like it could be a little slacker, so I am considering the externalizer headset option. How are you finding the E540s holding up. I am in the process of getting another rear wheel built up, likely a hadley hub on either a 721 or Syncros DS28.

    Do you find any clearance issues with using the 2,75" stroke shock?

    Very nice bike

    Several of my riding friends run 8.75 x 2.75 shocks on their 6Point frames with no issues.

    Paired with a 180mm travel fork (Totem or 66) its one fun handling ride.

    Like Winston said-no issues. Even DW mentioned in another thread that it was ok. The rear triangle is basically the same as the 7point. With that in mind the, 6point is the burliest bike for it weight(well in my opinion).

    Sounds good, thanks.
    I'm kinda pleased with my setup as it is, pictured furter up in this thread somewhere, but the curiossity of change always lurkes in background. For trail riding I find my current setup close to perfect, but would like to slacken the hta for gravity riding.
    Have been thinking about getting a 8,5x2,5" shock to slacken the front a bit, but got curios about that 8,75x2,75" combined with a Enduro extender setup too. Well, we'll se.. First of all this white stuff on the ground needs to go away.

    Good memories from last season

    A few of us arounf the shop have been thinking about trying an 8.5 by 2.5. We want that lower slacker geo. Any feedback on how the suspension feels? DW, any comment on how it afects the progression rate?

    Thanks

    I agree, my set up feels great, but I also wouldn't mind having a little more slack for the DH. Right now its not bothering me too much. I've thought about the extender(I even bought one) but I haven put it on yet. I just didn't want go through the work of removing the bottom internal cup, because you can achieve the same angle with just a 180mm fork (which I plan on getting, some time)
    As for the 8.5" shock, I would really think about it. The BB is already pretty low, my pedals seem to hit random rocks every now and again (but not a super big deal). The 8.5" would slacken it a bit, w/ an even lower BB. But then again, if that was an issue you could just get a shorter crank set. In my opinion the winning combo is still the 2.75” stroke shock with a 180mm up front = added travel, slacker HA, and a slightly higher BB. Anyways...good luck

    I ran a short shock on my old 7 point too.
    My feeling is the suspension operates with a little more chain growth. And a little more anti squat. I don't mind it at all. Might be noticeable in the granny gear but I don't use one. I think it might have a little less small bump compliance as well. Bottom out feels the same. Real smooth. I'm curious what DW would say as well.

    Its so much better with the slack and low geo for my purposes..

    anybody have an idea of how much an 8.5" shock slacks out the head angle? based on blah's numbers, seems like maybe about 1/2 deg? maybe a whole degree, considering the a2c on the Fox fork may be less than the stock Marzocchi on the 6.4.

    Can someone tell me if the 6 point series requires a 1 1/8 internal headset?

    I have a frame on the way and I was planning on using a king...

    A Chris King won't work. You need something like this: FSA Orbit Z Zerostack

    Thank you very much, that saved me some time.

    OK, so gentlemen, here is the question. I am building up a 07 6.4 frame from the ground up, first thing I did was order a 5.0 air to replace the 3 because I wanted the propedal. I have the build pretty much already purchased, other than the fork.

    I am trying to decided between these.

    -RS Lyrik Solo Air
    -Fox Van 36
    -Fox Float 36

    I weigh around around 230 w/ gear at the moment and I run a Fox 40 on the Sunday so I am somewhat partial to fox since they have always taken good care of me. But the Lyrik interests me because all of the praise I hear, but I have never touched one.

    So... What are your thoughts?


    My build as follows:
    07 IH 6.4
    08 Fox DHX 5 Air
    Fork ?????
    Saint Cranks w/ E.13 DRS
    XO Shifters
    X9 rear mech
    XTR Front
    Sunline Bars
    Thomson Stem
    Thomson Post
    Hadley hubs on 819 or 823s
    Avid Codes
    Maxxis Rubber

    It's not going to be lite, but neither is the rider

    Well, first and foremost, outside of saving 0.0000012 of a pound on the X-O and spending more than twice as much, I'd tell you to go with X-9 shifters. I love mine and they feel the same. They're basically last years' X-9 just without carbon fiber.

    Go with an XT or X9 front deraileur, too. Again, you're just paying too much for a difference that you'll never notice.

    As far as forks, go with someone coil That's just me. I love my Fox rear suspension, but I TRULY love my Rock Shox from suspension. I've got a Totem on my big bike, and a Pike on the other bike (7point and . The Lyric is an awesome fork, but I've yet to ride it. If it's half as good as my Totem and my Pike, I'd still be in love with it. I'm sold on Rock Shox. BUT... I'd really recommend going with a Coil fork for someone of your weight. Have you had issues with Fox or any other brand and running an air-sprung shock/fork in the past?

    Just curious.
    Meh.

    I already have the shifters, and I can pick up the front D for around 40 bones, so thats why I listed those.

    I got to spend some time on a Totem solo air, and didn't have any problems, also spent a few runs in angelfire on a boxxer world cup and although it was not as smooth as a coil because of the psi I had to run for the right amount of sag, it held up great and I liked it's responsiveness.

    I can pick up an 08 Float 36 cheaper than I can pick up a vanilla at the moment, that's why the float is in the equation.

    So I finally got the bike built up, after coming from a Sunday all I can say is the dw link is still where it's at as far as I'm concerned. Only thing I am going to change in the near future is swapping out the dhx for a rocco coil when it gets here this week and also a new Thomson post.

    My build as follows:
    07 IH 6.4
    08 Rocco Coil
    Fork Marz 55
    Saint Cranks w/ Gamut p40
    XO Shifter
    X9 rear mech
    Control Tech Bars
    Thomson Stem
    Thomson Post
    Hadley hubs on Syncros FR's
    Avid Codes
    Kona Wah Wah Pedals
    Maxxis Rubber

    Let me join the club...

    Just ordered up a closeout 2007 6Point4! 15" size. Swapping most of my stuff from my 07 Preston frame (just haven't been able to get used to the feel of that bike) other than keeping the BB/crank/rear wheel setup.

    Juicy brakes, SRAM drive bits, Thomson stem/Sunline bar, Gravity Dropper post, Hope Bulb 20mm front wheel; can't wait!

    66ATA up front ought to give me just shy of 67 degrees, and could even go slacker with the RWC lower headset external cup. Don't think I'll want to , but it's a nice option to have. I'm no big hucker/jumper, just like slack bikes!

    Then all the parts get swapped onto the Preston for sale. Win-win for me!

    6 Point 7 Update

    Okay finally got the new wheels built. I normally wouldn't worry about matching things up on the bike like hub color but since I ended up with a red Hadley on the back, I wanted to find a good quality red hub for the front. It took a while but finally managed to get a decent deal on a Chris King.

    I may have saved a little weight over the stock wheels, but I hopefully have a much strong wheelset now in place.

    I also manage to snag an excellent deal on a set of new Juicy 7's to replace the older ones.

    Last little add-on what a chain guide to keep things quieter and hopefully avoid any ill timed chain drops. Okay here goes with the pics.




    and some pics taken, although my photo skills are not great, here goes.

    That's a nice lookin' rig!

    Now stop the blasphemy and get a stem that doesn't say KONA on it.

    J/k.
    Meh.

    Okay I'm busted. For what every reason that old stem just keeps making its way from bike to bike. I did have a nice stem before the fugly KONA one, however the threads stripped out when tightening onto the steerer tube. I ended up stopping by my LBS and they had it for $5 or $10 in the parts bin.

    The old stem may look ugly and weighs a ton but it has worked, but I guess this bike really deserves something better looking. I can always keep the old one as a spare ...

    Haha... glad you didn't take me seriously. The bike is a beaut, that's for sure.

    I have a few misc. parts that have made the transfer between bikes. The BB on my '05 7point was installed on the bike in mid-2006 when I bought it. But it came from a 2004 Iron Horse SGS Pro. It's destroyed, and sounds like someone chewing gravel when I pedal, but it works, and that's all that matters. :-)
    Meh.

    Rideitall,

    It looks great ! I love the way that ROCO looks against the black of the frame and those wheels should be indestructable.

    I'm absolutely loving my 6Point after modifying the shock canister )air curve) on my DHX air. I haven't had any pedal smacks since and the bike rides WAY better overall.

    How do you like the Marz ROCO air ?

    By the way, I highly recommend the headset by Enduro, it makes my ride feel dialed my Marz 55TST fork.
