    swap everything from 05 reign 2 to 2011 reign 0 frame?

    my 05 reign 2 has been a slow upgrading process over the years and recently the frame has been sadly damaged.
    can I simply swap everything from it (except rear shock) over to a 2011 frame?

    bottom bracket is press fit on the 11, so i am guessing my crank will not fit? it is the raceface x type

    your straight 1&1/8" steerer tube fork will need an adapter for the tapered head tube on the new bike.
    &, you're correct in assuming the crank won't fit the new bike as well, although maybe just a new bearing set might suffice.

    Both those issues has dampened my enthusiasm to dump my 08 reign.

    well, good thing is the new frames are lighter, even my 08 dropped somewhere between 1/2 to 3/4 of a pound from my 05
