Just a quick question for those who's had experience with these 2 Giant Reign frame shapes.
I've had Giant Reign 08 and 10 in the past. 2010 frame with Fox 36 150 mm was just fabulous: fast, plush, and overall nice.
The only thing I did not like was some flex in the frame. I'm a heavy guy who has been riding frames with thru axle rears for a while and I like stiff frames.
I'm currently thinking of buying a newer shape Reign (not X), probably 2013 as a frame only. The question is: is it stiffer overall/in the rear? It's still QR and although I plan on running a bolt-on axle there's still chance it will be a bit flexy. At least the 2010 model year was despite bolt-ons.
Do you have any real world experience with newer shape frames in comparison with older shape or other bikes as benchmarks?
Any info is highly appreciated.
