Can we post here videos of our reigns too? hope so, there is nearly no action here.
Back in October, I broke my left arm in a stupid crash, and was off the bike for a long time. Still am.
In the mean time, our local gang organized a totally amateur competion with friends from other parts of Portugal.
A friend had just broken his Reign X lower link, so I borrowed him my 2010 Reign 1 (already in this thread) for that day.
For your viewing pleasure, he is half of my age, twice my skills, and guess what: has a Gopro... :)
I spent the day taking times, and driving up and down with a cast in the arm :-)
Worth it, nevertheless
First video from the "race", which has some (boring) uphills

Second video, from the rest of the day, exploring other fantastic trails, in Sintra, Portugal:

Clicked through the last 6 pages or so, didn't see any 2011 Reign x1s, so here's my new toy. All stock so far, want to get a dropper seatpost, a quieter chainguide and maybe some brakes, not sure how i feel about the elixir 5s yet.
Just been though all 13 pages of this thread.
I have a 05 Reign frame coming this week (hopefully, I haven't got shipping confirmation yet....) I picked it up for cheap. It will be my first FS frame to compliment my SS HT.
The frame has the original Swinger on it and I plan on running it till it blows. Can anybody tell me about changing the shock out to a Van R? How does it change the bike? I know I am getting a head of my self I am just pumped to get the bike built up.
Don't know how it's done in your country, but I think you should get your other arm broke for racing through people on multi-use trails with family's on them... riding sure, but seeing those two guys elbowing at each other for the single lane on "singletrack" with hikers on the trail up in ahead of them was pretty lame...

(now if this was a DH course that isn't supposed to have people walking on it than I apologize, but it doesn't look like that's the case to me)
Good news, bro!!! :) No need to break the other arm, the broken one is already healed !! I can break it again.

You might have your point, but that happened in about (that) 1% of the trail, and going uphill. Furthermore, we often share the trails with pedestrians, in peace and safety. The usual reaction is just joy, even if in "competition mode".
I've made at least 10x more dangerous close calls in the last Mega alone, and it had a professional organization.
Relax, dude. But don't get out of your glass bell jar, or you might get hurt. Or worst. You may cross a red light or something, and then as a coherent guy you are for sure, you'll just suicide yourself.
If you agree, I'll break the two arms of the guys fighting for that position. Fair enough?

Fortunately here in Portugal we don't fret on tagging trails for multi-use, horse use, trekking, biking, whatever. There are trails open for motorized, not open for motorized and not open at all and it works perfectly fine. In fact the people you say were "uuuhh" so frightened and at risk for us passing by in a 100 meter wide trail were actually cheering as we went by! But you know what ? I could be the one at risk for their unleashed dog... but well that would be the chicken and the egg story, no? Guess our reasoning.. Let's get along !
Anyways as for you wishing for Marsupilami (what a stupid name F calls himself on the forum) to break another arm it almost got fulfilled but in the form of a wrist. Nonetheless I must say that you should conduct all that anger and practice reverse digestion of a big pole.
Nice rides on your perfectly groomed, tagged and so civilized trails ! :)
Donīt you dare cursing again on Marsupilami!!! He's the most awesome carachter ever!

2010 Reign Updates
Okay here is the latest installment of my 2010 Reign
Picked up as frame only, the moved components from my 2008 Reign. Updated a few things along the way.
Sun Charger Expert wheels run tubeless with Schwalbe tires
Replaced my older XT with a newer set
Replaced RP23 with Monarch RC3, have one ride on it.
Added Bionicon C-Guide
Off to test it out tomorrow after work.
I am quite happy how the bike is setup, built to take some abuse, with some pretty heavy duty rubber to handle the steep, rocky and muddy terrain, and still just above 31.5 lbs as she sits. Here is how she looks now.
