    Midnight, that is a nice ride. It appears as if you are really trying to prevent scratches and chips in your frame. You might want to protect the areas I highlighted in green. The chain will wear a bunch on those parts of the rear triangle.

    OLD SCHOOL.

    This is my wife's park bike and I "pimped" it out last winter. (Custom power coat and decals, Gravity stem and bars, Code brakes, 8 inch front rotor, 6 inch rear) I never posted any pixs till today on another thread so I thought I'd post here too.

    I put an old 7" Boxxer with the black-box internals on front. She doesn't ride that hard so I'm sure it's fine for her, I'm not worried about her snapping the head tube or anything like that. Putting that front fork on really made it a much more capable park bike for her. Also kept a front derailer on it, running two rings in front so she can climb if need be. Her trail bike is a Trance so keeping her in the "Giant family" of bikes just kinda made sense.

    Looks great in burgundy. The original Reign are ox-strong, so it should cope fine... Maybe put a BB Stinger on it as the final touch

    The color is actually transparent rasbery, the color really doesn't come across in the photo though. I would if I knew what that was?? It does have a raceface bash-ring on it though.

    Few small updates in this pic (mines posted somewhere here!) Not shown in the pic is the new Sunline V1 745mm bar thats so much better than the 700mm it replaced. Much better feel as I dont have my hands hanging over the ends of the grips anymore.
    70mm Thomson stem, Fox VanR coil rear shock, Lyrik upfront from new... XT wheels and running tubeless as I got pissed off with pinch flatting all the time. XT centre lock discs and the obligatory dropper post.

    New fork and wheelset update! Fitted a tapered Talas onto the straight headtube with the EC44 headset. New headtube angles are awesome!

    Hi, sorry for the extremely late reply!
    Been caught up in a move, amongst other things.

    Mine is heavier than Yours
    I'm a bit surprised she is that heavy, but she still is pure joy to ride.
    Switched out the narrow scandium bar for a longer Answer Carbon, handles so different now(for the better)

    Believe the tires is a culprit, weight-wise. Wider tires is hardly possible with the frame.
    Rolling resistance is decent and I am really pleased with the grip in the muddy, early spring conditions.

    Added a pic from after I gave her a dip in the sea

    On my way to construct a BB mount chain device, from straitline parts.
    Adjustable seatpost will soon replace the scandium post, pushing the weight over 26 lbs :/


    Regards,
    Isak

    I built this bike with the intention of making it the go to bike if I had no idea what type of bike would suit a trail I'd never ridden best.
    The goals: efficient, sturdy/durable/reliable, lightweight.
    The weight goal was really a challenge as well as a priority. I work in a shop and I want all of my customers to walk through the door and be able to get the exact parts I run. This takes all those uber-light european parts off the table. Everything I have on my bike is something that can be purchased through one of my major distributors.

    I was also really trying to keep to a strict budget throughout the build so of course you won't see everything top end on this build, but most parts were chosen for value, weight and quality.

    I ended up at 26.8lbs right now without anything titanium or carbon(except the bar). I have a headset, pedals, derailleur, and bashguard on their way that will drop another 180ish grams.

    Next year when I'm back up to health and don't have so much on my plate I plan to swap the brakes for R1's. The shifting will be replaced by a full XX group. I think I can get close to the 26lbs range, while keeping a full 150mm travel, 2.4 tires, and a height adjust post. I might try to switch to a carbon crank as well. I just blew up my FSA K-Force so for now the E13 will do at 755g+the 99g BB.

    Anyway, here she is:

    Going up! Drop the fork, raise the post. Yes, the post looks tall. I'm 5'11 with a 36" inseam. My torso is super short so I ride mediums with tall posts. Proper leg extension requires a full foot a exposed seatpost.


    Going down! Drop the seat, raise the fork. I'm not 100% satisfied with the cable routing. I know I can clean it up a touch. I'm doing a shake down run tomorrow so I'll make changes with what I find.


    Specs:
    Frame: Giant Reign 2, medium
    Rear shock: Fox Float RP2(will be replaced by a Monarch)
    Fork: Maverick DUC32. SusEx seal heads, IFP, tuned for me
    Stem: Maverick Adjustable
    Bar: Answer AM carbon 720mm
    Grips: ODI Ruffian lock on
    Shifters: Sram XO gripshift
    Front derailleur: Sram XX
    Rear derailleur: Sram XO(5 years old, no carbon cage)
    Chain: KMC X9SL
    Cassette: Shimano XT 11-34
    Cranks: E13 XC 22/32/Shimano bash
    Pedals: Tioga platform
    Saddle: WTB Devo Carbon Ti
    Post: RockShox Reverb(stright out of the box, uncut/no bleed)
    Clamp: Woodman Deathgrip Ti
    Brakes: Shimano XT(not the servowave version)
    Rotors: Avid Cleansweep X(185/165)
    Wheels:
    Front: King ISO 24mm, Revolution spokes, Blunt rims
    Rear: King ISO 135, Revolution spokes, Blunt rims
    Tubes: Specialized regular ol' presta 2.2
    Tires: Schwalbe RocketRon 2.4's
    Computer: Trek Incite 11i
    Chainstay protection: Hacked old tube


    Enjoy!

    You are probably aware, but dual crown forks voids the Reign frame warranty. They must have their reasons.

    IMO, one of the few times that us big guys get the better looking bike/frame then the smaller guys.
    (seems like the small/medium frames always look awesome in the magazines/reviews, and then when I go buy my L/XL it looks all lanky... )

    I'm right with ya there, totally agree
    The proportions just look better with the large frame in this case, less cluttered...
