    Burly 6point build weight!

    Just weighed my bike for the first time!

    39.6 pounds. Thats with a 66SL, a Maxxis Mobster 2.7 front tire (1320g), Panaracer fire FR 2.4 rear (870g), Very heavy platform clipless pedals. DT Swiss 6.1 rims with OEM hubs. Marzocchi ROCO TST with Ti coil. FSA gap crankset.

    Very heavy parts on other words.

    I'd weigh it again.
    I'd have to guess that your components are less burly than mine. My front tire weighs a pound heavier than the back tire and I have heavy duty tubes in the tires. They can add over a pound easily. I am running a coil shock albeit Ti. My Shimano 645 dx pedals weigh over a pound. My DT swiss 6.1 rims are heavy (620g/1.36lbs each). Fork is only .5lbs lighter than a 66RC2X so not a huge gain for you there. I run a 83mm heavy crankset and my rear hub is 150mm x 12mm.
    I researched frame weights and it looks like the Reign X frame is the same or heavier than the 6point8 frame.

    So you must have a much lighter parts spec than mine. The 6point8 stock build from IH weighs 34.3 pounds, add the 1 pound the 66RC2 adds and that would be 35.3lbs.
    All my parts except fork and shock came off of a 06' 7point5.

    So I could definitely lower the weight alot but the coil shock rules and I am happy to have the dual-ply tire on the front.

    As I replace broken/wornout parts I will lighten up some things but I doubt I will ever get below 38lbs. Heavyduty tubes/tires are just too important for the terrain I ride.

    Edit; I think I figured it out. It must be the extra .3 inches of travel I have.
    Or the LBS' scale was wrong but it feels like 40lbs.

    Here's another riders Reign X setup and weight from RideMonkey:
    2007 Giant Reign X review

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So I’ve been on this thing for about a month now, and figured it was time to give a review. Still need to ride it in a few more places to get a full feel for it, and need to get the suspension dialed a bit better.

    Spec:
    Reign X frame 18” (built up from frameset only)
    Marz ’06 66 sl @170mm
    DHX 3.0 coil
    Azonic Headlock
    Bontrager Earl wheelset
    Planet X Stem
    Easton EA70 bars 685mm
    Lizard Skins lock on grips
    Sram x.7 shifters
    Sram x.7 rear derailleur
    Deore front derailleur
    Avid Juicy 5 brakes
    Giant internal headset
    Truvativ Holzfeller crankset
    Truvativ Howitzer BB
    Crank Bros Mallet C pedals
    E.13 DRS
    WTB Speed V seat
    Bontrager Select seatpost
    Shimano crap cassette
    Hutchinson Barracuda 2.3 front tire
    Hutchinson Piranha 2.3 rear tire

    Misc Measurements:

    Frame weight: 9.0 Lbs exactly with shock (no headset)
    BB height: 13.8"
    Wheelbase: almost 45.5" exactly

    Weight: a hefty 38.8 lbs

    Air shocks and AM build vs. coil shock and FR build seems to equate to about 4lbs on these bikes. it's funny, your fr version 6points and Reign X's are heavier than my DH bike!

    Actually, i'd really love to have a spare longer stroke CCDB and Totem, for some rides that would be the sick setup, 13.8 bb, 7 inches of travel....

    Good job! Another 7" Path conversion

    My new Path 7" 6point6 conversion:


    And its first on-trail action, on Chiquito, courtesy of Winston:




    It's super plush w/ a Totem up front and a pushed DHX (loaner from the shop while my Roco TST is on order), and pedals *really* well for a ~39 pound bike.

    Already has a few bumps & bruises on it, but none on me! The only fall I took was blamed on my Sidis and wet rocks while trying to get into position to take some pictures. :)

    New 6 point here.

    I bought the bike on closeout and just used the frame.

    Fox Van RC2 fork
    Old school Van RC rear shock 8.5x2.5
    Juicy's
    Headset extender from enduro. (Thanks to those who mentioned this.)

    The headset extender and the 8.5 rear shock give the bike a 66.5 HA and a 13" B.B. height.

    Geo feels great to me. I never tried it stock.

    Very NICE !

    Great setup and the geo looks absolutely perfect !

    How does the old school Fox RC work on it ? I have one as well but I need to get the right spring for it. Any pedal smacking with the BB being that low ?

    I got my 6point4 right after Christmas, its awesome! I swaped out the forks w/ my old Domains, ordered a DHX 5.0 (w/2.75" stroke) for the rear, then swaped out a few other parts from my old bike. I'll post some pics up as soon as my shock comes in.

    hey BLABLABLA sick setup. I got one of those extenders too,still don't know if I need to use it or not, but was wondering what did you use to remove the internal bottom headset cup?

    6 Point

    Here my new 6 Point !

    It weighs 34# with the following mods:

    XT cassette
    Hutchinson Barracuda lite tires 2.35 + Light tubes (for trail)
    Marzochhi 55 TST
    Wellgo Magnesium pedals
    Gravity lite crank arms
    FSA isis BB
    Husselfelt stem and bars
    SDG seat and Post
    Enduro Headset extender
    ....Awaiting a stinger dual chain guide

    I also modified the DHX-air on my 6point by adding plastic inside the outer sleeve to take up the extra air space. Here is the link to the modification: DHX air upgraded with the RP3 air sleeve The shock has way more mid stroke support now and doesn't blow through the travel anymore. This should help greatly with pedal smacking. I did this to my Bottle Rocket last year to help with bottom resistance and it worked amazingly well. The difference in the shock is much more noticable on the 6 Point DHX though because the outer air sleeve on the 6 point is much larger than the Bottle rocket DHX air sleeve as shown in the first picture. I should be able to get some rides in tommorow to test it out some more. The snow is just starting to melt !

    6 Point 7

    Well here it is almost done, awaiting a chain guide and a few other bits, but pretty much done. The sale RS Cycle had on the 6.4s seems to have prompted a few last minute purchases.

    TZ - is that a Totem on your 6point. How does the bike feel in terms of head angle. I have mine with the 2007 RC2X 180mm and still feels like it could be a little slacker, so I am considering the externalizer headset option. How are you finding the E540s holding up. I am in the process of getting another rear wheel built up, likely a hadley hub on either a 721 or Syncros DS28.

    Do you find any clearance issues with using the 2,75" stroke shock?

    Very nice bike

    Several of my riding friends run 8.75 x 2.75 shocks on their 6Point frames with no issues.

    Paired with a 180mm travel fork (Totem or 66) its one fun handling ride.
