    [SIZE=2]Yes, the design is outwardly very similar. Ever since Santa Cruz put a weird top tube on their Nomad this has been happening with allot of companies.

    Fortunately the suspension system is completely different, if youíve ridden them you are pretty sure to find the Reign works better even if some people donít like the geometry and riding position.

    [SIZE=2]-Sorry if I offended any of the Enduro owners.

    I also notice the Reign is 2008 and the Enduro is 07.

    Anything I havenít noticed?

    Suspension is completely different... yes... but the frame is nearly the exact same looking, with the wheelbase being shorter on the Reign.

    many bikes share frame similarities.
    personally i don't think the reign and enduro look that much alike.

    You're right, they copied the wheels! And cranks! And, well, the seat thingie too!

    Yeah, many bikes look a like. However, you can get a Jones and set yourself apart if that's important:



    Very cool stuff.

    Trek also looks damn close in design, and it comes w tried and true shocks on it already. Good thing I didnt see this before I bought my SL after reading all the problems w the shocks.

    The enduro SL thread. Also I have one like I said. Mine has lasted more than most especially considering the abuse I put it thru. Every thread about the SL has some one talking about the shock and fork in one way or another, S has been great in taking care of it tho. Mine was taken to the LBS on a mon at 4pm and they had new shocks on the bike and back in my hands by wed nite same week!

    But what happens when you're away on a trip with a significant investment into it and you're really far away from the car and one or both of the shocks blow on you?

    um. . . ride it back to the car, sob, and rent a bike for the rest of the trip. or buy a spare or borrow one and take it w/ you. Like a good little boy scout.

    See, that's always a consideration for me because I frequently do rides where I'm hours away from the car and/or home. A blown shock for me is a lot more than being a good boy scout. I feel for those people.
