    hey on the respray, who did you have do it and what technique did they use (powdercoat etc)

    did you have to have it all sanded down first?

    any weight penalty?

    Thanks mate.
    Me and my father painted it actually.
    Nah,we didn't powder coat it.Just used conventional liquid car spray paint.
    We had to completely strip it down and sand it.Then applied a few coats of grey primer,let it dry then did heaps of coats of orange then finally applied a few coats of clear.
    As with weight penalty, I don't think it added any extra weight with the new paint.

    Well, here is my (new to me) 2008 Reign 1. Only thing I've put on it so far is a chainstay protector.

    Anything I should absolutely upgrade on the bike?

    Tire rubbing on 2.2 trail king

    I got a set of trail king ust 2.2 on Flows - and when im in my granny and 34tooth cog, my chain rubs the casing of the tire. Im not too impressed with this tire in the wet, and with old man winter knocking soon, i'd like to change out to a non ust tire - thinking the nobby nic or FA - anyone have any experience with these on a wide rim like a flow? on the rear obviously.

    Those of you that are running the nobby nic's, are you using them all year round or just in the summer? Considering making the switch from the nevegals.

    I have been using Nobby Nic's all year round.They've served me pretty well.The have good grip front and rear,have a good rolling speed and are pretty light.I use the UST versions in a size 2.25 front and back.
    I haven't used the Nevegals before so I cant really compare.

    Calling Krispy to the show off your latest build thread! Now that he debuted his latest ride and kicked some butt in Moab maybe he'll show how to properly pimp your 2011 Reign.

    So for you reign owners that have done the coil conversion... anything I should know about before doing mine? I am planning on ordering the 2011 Van R coil 7.875 x 2.25 in the next few days. I have a 2010 Reign 2. I am also most likely converting to a 1x9 setup as well, so I know I won't have any issues with the front derailleur. But anything else I should know about before I do this?

    You need to push out the bottom metal sleeve on the shock eyelet so the bottom bolt will fit through. Move FD up 1/4 inch. enjoy.

    For those of you with the Fox 36 160mm forks... what are your static BB heights?
    I know tire selection adds to this number so listing your tire choice and size would be really convenient as well.

    Cool Doc. May I ask what country?

    Here in Singapore we ride in some areas that have similar military warning signs but it's no big deal...

    I like the orange a lot. Should have left off the Giant lettering, however.

    It is in Moscow, Russia, and these signs remained with the former warehouses of military property and don't deliver any problems

    2009 Reign 1

    I have a 2009 Reign 1
    BBB 60mm Stem
    Kore 210mm bars
    2 Ring bash setup 24, 36
    DMR V8 pedals
    Shimano XT Wheelset with straight pull hubs ( Tubeles compatible )

    I guess the most interesting thing I've done so far is I'm running a pair of Geax 2.3 DHEA's tubeless. Not so special? Well these are just the standard wire bead non UST versions. Not the lightest ( due to double wall ) but uber stable, take a pounding and surprisingly quick!

    I'm running a 2.25 DHX on my 08 Reign. Moved the derailleur up a bit, no problems. I'm thinking of going back to 1X9, it used to be 1X9 but I got tired of the exhausting climbs. Now after a year or so, I'm tired of hearing my chain bang all over the frickin derailleur when I come down. I miss the golden silence of a tech descent with 1X9 and chain tensioner. Never happy!
