    New question here. 2005 Reign question

    Ok so I have a Reign that I have ridden the crap out of for the past two and a half years or so. I love the handling and overall feel of the bike, but unfortunately I neglected to maintain a pivot on the swingarm and it has ovalized. How much would it cost to replace the swingarm? Would it be worth it considering other parts of the bike require some maintience?
    Thanks

    One of the upper swingarm bearings exploded (imploded?) on my '05 Reign 2, after a hard year of riding (neglecting). My LBS got me a Reign 1 swingarm as a warranty replacement; but it still had those same crappy bearings - have since been replaced w/EnduroForkSeals bearings, and relubed often.

    Your LBS Giant dealer should be able replace the rear frame no probs...if not, then take it to another shop and simply state that the bearing housing had ovalised. Smart move replacing the stock versions too. Good to always check them after some serious riding if only to tighten and remove any excess muck off them, make sure all is well with the world.
