    2011 Giant reign project.

    I decided to put my upgrade questions and progress in here vs all over the forum. I have a 2011 giant reign 2 that purchased a few months ago and decided to do some upgrades. So far I have done the following.

    Bars answer pro taper 720 carbon
    Answer rove 80mm stem
    ODI Rogue grips in red
    Answer Rove pedals
    Red headset spacer
    red valve stem caps.
    Red seatpost clamp

    I have in route to me
    Shimano Zee brakes
    203mm shimano rt-66l
    3x9 sram xo shifters

    My next purchase will be xo RD near new for 90.00 and then I am not sure. What else would you upgrade? I am eventually thinking of upgrading fork and rear shock, hubs, and headset. Maybe a dropper post and not sure about the crank and chain or the rear cassette. Maybe throw on some ODI red bar plugs.

    So what say you? What else should I upgrade? I will get pics once I install the brakes, rotors and shifters.

    If you are dropping money: wheelset, Shimano shifters & clutch derailleur (SRAM Type2 = flawed), 2x10 with light bashguard.

    I am not going with type 2 rd and I just spent money on x0 shifters. I dont care for the shimano shifters so I am stuck with the sram rd and that is why I found one without the clutch. We have been riding without the clutch for so long now I really dont see needing it. With the 2x10 I decided to keep my 3x9 for now and that is why I just purchased the XO shifters.

    Wheels are a possibility. When I change out my fork I need to change hubs. I will probably just get a wheelset built.

    Well today the rotors came in and I installed them. Shimano 203mm rt66. I used red hardware to attach the rotors and red adapters. Hopefully I will have my zee brakes soon and my X0 shifters.
