    2013 Reign X

    Ok, we know next gen Reign X is coming this summer so I hope we'll see some prototypes soon...

    Any news, rumors, what changes will be on the frame? Beside new lower link of course

    Giant To Offer Carbon Anthem X 29er And Reign - BikeRadar

    sounds like carbon, which is never a bad thing. The reign x is such a well built bike, i would love to get one. looking forward to the aftermath of seaotter to see all the new bits and bikes.

    12 x 142 = Maybe (I see Specialized are reverting to 12 x 135 for their top end DH rig as it makes the rear end narrower.
    Longer top tube = not required for me, I love the fit the way it is
    Slacker HA = Yes 66.5 or even 66
    Better lower link = YES!!!, wouldn't be hard to make it worse!
    More attractive colour = Subjective but yes, 2012 colours are a bit naff.

    EDIT: And 1 x 10/11 gearing.
    And internal cable routing
    And 170mm fork

    I guess we'll know after Interbike this Northern Hemisphere autumn.

    It may even occur earlier, as there is a European 2013 range presentation next week in Spain.

    believe what you will without even trying it...it's my experience after having ridden mine and an unmodified full 26" 2011 reign back to back that mine corners better, steers better, clears rock gardens and rooty techy terrain better, manuals better, and on and on...it's my opinion that low BB=faster cornering is a myth...i've dialed my bike in to suit me and it works.

    I love how you assume...

    glad you found a setup that works for you and the type of riding you do.

    euhh - that right there tells me that most of the riding you do doesn't involve high speed trails.

    Anyone who tells me with a straight face that there are no advantages to a low bottom bracket simply doesn't ride any balls-out trails.

    No myth here, just basic theoretical phycics.

    you can go into theoretical physics all you want...while you're at it, go ahead and make up some theories of what kind of trails and how balls out i ride too...oh wait, you already did....

    how about this: it's all tradeoffs, compromises if you will. i retract any words, hints, or intonations that i made that there are no (zero) benefits to a low BB, how's that for a compromise, me meeting you in the middle....(and the other naysayers...ahem ze loudmouth frenchie!!)

    on that note, you can't tell me with a straight face there are no advantages to a higher BB either....each (relatively higher or lower BB heights) have their pros and cons, i choose higher. compromise.

    Doesn't seem much different, except for the (awesome) addition of a roller style chain guide...

    The other pictures showing linkage and BB detail are not of the Reign.

    That aside, is it just me or does the geo look nice and slack? The fork appears to be Fox 32. One wonders if there will be a Reign X in the 2013 line up, may have to wait until Interbike to find out.

    Is it beyond the capabilities of Giant to run internal cables? They seem to make frames with internal routing for everyone else but not for themselves? Come on Giant, get with the times.

    The new trance 29er has internal routing. Which among other things, leads me to believe that that picture is not a 2013 reign..

    On that picture is 2013 reign, color scheme looks to be similar to 2013 anthem and trance 29 and there is also iscg guide, which 2012 didnt have.

    Still waiting for 2013 reign X...

    The French text under this image clearly points out that this is the linkage of the 26" Reign. Looks like a pressed in BB to me.

    but judging by the upper link it's a Women's Reign. So the regular men's reign MIGHT have a threaded BB.

    I spy a coil shock and maybe a coil Lyric up front.

    Edit: Here's hoping they got the lower link right and it's backward compatible with the 2010-12 bikes. I'll be keen to see some geo numbers in due course.

    Is that a Lyric up front and a Monarch Plus in the back on the X1? Seems like a downgrade from this years 36 Float R/ DHX 5...

    2013 bikes (almost all) will be more expensive than last year so some brands are downgrading their components to mantain the price to a point.

    Well this is surprise that giant didn't update their reign x - it look the same as 2010-2012 generation. Usually they make update every three years, so in this case it doesn't look so...

    not uncommon to have press launches or previews in hotel meeting rooms. Quite standard actually.
