    2018 Giant Reign 2 Questions

    Have come across a great deal on a 2018 Giant Reign 2, just had a few questions for anyone that has ridden one.

    • Being 6'2" 220 lbs, is size Large the right option? (I'm going to go try it out, but just curious what others have experienced)
    • The stock brakes don't seem that great, shimano Deore brakes. Are they adequate? Hoping to do some park riding with this.
    • How is the climbing? My local trails have some climbing, I suck at it, so probably doesn't matter what I ride, but is the reign OK at climbing?

    You'll probably be fine on the large but XL is probably more ideal if you use the bike for enduro riding.

    The reign is not a good climber compared to a trail or XC bike. It will be fine if you're locking it out for fire road climbs and using it to bomb some real mountain descents. Personally, I would not buy one for regular singletrack. They're kind of lifeless unless you're flying down a mountain.
