Just curious for some thoughts here....a good discussion never hurts!
I'm currently riding an '03 AC1 which I bought new in Nov. '04. While I love this bike to death (honest), it's a tank (37-38 lbs) ...and to be honest, I have to fiddle with a lot of stuff during a ride to make it perform properly (other than the Z1 I added...I LOVE it!). In other words, I have to crank up the SPV reservoir before the climb to the top (If I don't it REALLY likes to bob), and then when I get there, reset the reservoir, the threshold, etc. before heading down......I should say that my favorite trails have downhill sections that many people like to take DH bikes on....
Just for the heck of it, here is a pic of my current set-up
Post #54 in this thread Giant AC thread: Show em off
I guess to summarize here are my questions to those of you who have owned/ridden both bikes (BTW, I'm looking at the '06 Reign 1)
How much better will the Reign climb?
Will the Reign be able to descend as well?
I've see the other threads, but they never really gave the answer I was looking for....how much lighter would an '06 Reign 1 be than my AC1?
