    Generally speaking I agree with that logic as such light parts can limit the bikes ability to be thrashed! Which is what makes a 6" bike so much fun to ride...

    But parts scale with rider weight, flows may seem more logical for a 6" bike than Crests. BUT, a 300+ lb rider will on average bend the crap out of flows if they ride hard. So for that person it makes more sense to go with an even stronger/heavier rim. (of which notubes doesn't even make cause they must like the fact that DH's have to buy extra rims for replacement parts!)

    Looking at the whole set up of the bike it seems likely it's intended for a rider that weights in on the light side!

    I guess you are right .. If you are light, and easy on gears, you can get away with lighter parts.

    I'm a WW myself and a 145 pounds rider. I even succefully (well, I used the warranty just one time) used ZTR Race wheelset as my everyday rims on my "XC" bike for 2 seasons.

    But this bike, geez, at least some 27" wider bars (I think he already put ones a little wider). These bars are like 22"

    Actually I tried to put a Romic coil on it but the bottom "shock cage" would not allow
    the shock to be mounted. I'm not sure what kind of coil would work with that set up.

    Well crap, I almost got rid of my old Romic and thought I should save it to try it on the Rx. (course it's been a year an a half since I had that thought) Guess there's no point in keeping it around anymore then...?

    I like the metal shield underneath the rear shock to protect it on the 1st page as shown. I might do the same. Any tips on it?

    GIANT reign 1 2012

    Finally got a new MTB. All i can say is three words. Totally bad ass. I think this may be the best bike i've ever had. All stock except wider easton bars and stem. Took it on a shakedown ride at bootleg canyon this morning. The maestro suspension climbs so well and then on the flipside it tracks so well on the downhill. The only part i think is kinda cheap is the deore rear hub. Whats up with that? Anyway heres the pics to capture the real color. It is awesome in person,blood red.

    Nice to see the Rockshox bits. That shade of red is very close to the original Reign at the top of this page...

    I just got rid of my santa cruz blur carbon xc (great race/training bike) and got a reign one. so far I am very impressed i can still climb all the steep hills i did on the blur, but can now smash the dhs and not worry about cracking my frame.

    You're right, I kinda' thought that was too good to be true.

    I'd entered 12450 into the converter..........

    Wow, really nice bikes,
    I have question for you guys, currently I´m buying Reign 2 2012, since my LBS in Croatia doesn´t have bike in store, I can´t see what size should I get? I´m 183 cm (6´) tall, and I don´t know should I get M or L size, my inseam is 91 cm (35.8 inches). Main reason for my question is that, I used to have Glory 1 2007 M size, and I´m not certain in manueverability of the L size bike.

    Thanks

    You'd be a large, Im 5'10 with a 31" inseam and the medium is perfect to a hair to small.. but it makes it nice for throwing around.. My brother has ridden the demo large reign 1 at my LBS
    and he's 6' and 36" in seem and it fits him great..
    2011 Reign, Fox rp23, 2012 Fox 36 Talas 160, Crossmax Sx, Sram X9 2x10 Group, XO brakes, Easton Havoc Bars (nice and wide!!)
