    Changing frame ´11 Reign for ´12 ReignX

    I want to change my 2011 reign frame for 2012 reignX frame. Now I have the set up with front 170mm Lyrik RC2DH and rear DHX Air 5 which gives me 170mm travel. I think to switch to 2012 Reign X frame with the same components which I have on my present bike. I don´t want to lost the pedal efficiency which gives me my reign now but I like the bigger durability on ReignX. Now I have 14,3 kg (31,50 lbs) bike and about 66,5 head angle with the Lyrik fork (2012 RX has 67 HA). What can I expected if I switch? Increasing weight? Worse pedalling? Something else?

    btw: any problem with lower link on ´12 reignX?

    The only significant gain from Reign to Reign X is the X's adding of bolt through rear vs. QR on the Reign. This comes at the (unrelated) expense of a less than durable lower link. I'd stick with what you have, it sounds like a pretty sweet setup.
