    That a phat build there dude.

    You probably know this , but a medium cage der. won't cut it with triple rings up front , especially with an 11-34 cassette. (Unless you're careful with selection of gear combinations , Eg 44:34 or 22:11 will be a no go)

    Go with dual rings / bashy. Its all you'll need anyway IMO.

    Don't forget to post pics when its done. Sounds sweet !

    Sick! It's similar to the build style I'm shooting for. The only thing I'd add to your list is to send the RP3 to push. The Van 36 looks to be a super sweet fork. I think I'm going with a Zokie 66 SL myself, as you can adjust the travel, which will make the bike a little more adaptable to different trails. Also Hadley hubs are worth taking a look at. They have quicker engagement than the kings and the rear hub comes with a 10mm through axle. They are also a bit heaver. I have kings at the moment, but I don't know if I'm going to keep them or go with the Hadleys.

    What headset & tires are you going with?

    Do you mean you are getting a Reign frameset and adding all of that??? I am assuming so, since you would be changing everything.

    I JUST GOT THE REIGN 1. omg I am soooo juicceeed. Whent to the shop today to fill out the ep forms and when I checked for availability there were none till late March. LUCKILY we have an 18 inch reign(the standard procedure to ep'ing a bike is ordering one because usually shops dont like employees buying stock bikes) and LUCKILY we are a predominately roadie shop so my boss let me ep our bike. Tomorrow Im gonna order all the extra stuff. Hub wise I was looking at Hadleys but I have always lusted for a set of Kings. I am definitely gonna Push the shock in the near future. At first I wanted a Nomad because I didnt like the shock on the Reign because its not very tunablebut, but since we are a Giant dealer I was like pshhh I'll just ride a Giant and PUSH the shock. Headset is the stock FSA and for tires I was thinking WTB Weirwolf 2.3s(2.5 in the front?) or something comporable. suggestions?

    frame weight?

    Hi Breggurns,

    If you haven't yet built the bike up, could you post the weight of the frame please?

    Also, if you do get to post the weight, is it for a 2006 frame with eht pierced down tube, or the 2005 with the rib-cage-BB-shock assembly?

    Thanks, Tim

    I didnt get it as a frame so I dont know the frame weight...its an 06...just made the order form for the parts 2day
    my upgrades are as follows:
    avid juicy 7 160mm (rear) 185mm(front)
    sram xo medium cage rd
    crank bros 5050xx silver/black platform pedals
    sram xo triggers
    wtb txc stam 80mm
    wtb txc bars
    e13 bash guard clear polycarbonate
    I was thinking about upgrading the fork to the vanilla rc2 but I figure that the talas r is fine for now. Wheel-wise I think the wtb dual duty fr wheels are good for now and if I break them then I'll get something burlier.
