    ... and if we just ... Comparative differences: Discourse between 08 and 07 Reign XO

    OK...so I have the 2007 XO Reign and wish to know what the differences - if any; are between the 08 and 07 model Reign X series.

    Besides the obvious and perhaps standard yearly parts overhaul/changes - which are also welcomed; what are the key changes to the frame set itself.

    Pics and info are all welcomed.

    Oh well thats naff to hear. good as well.

    I thought that they might tweek the Shock cage a bit to lighten it up while still maintaining integrity, cable routing, rear triangle formation and perhaps the head tube section and down tube as well as any BB issues and miss-measurements of frame sizes etc etc etc...

    Yeah...painting standards. This much I know, but I would not go so far as to say its Paint! Its more like anodizing and bead blasting, trying to use the natural finish of the alum and the weld, enhancing this somewhat with clever bead blasting to contrast the anodized colour scheme.

    So, new colour schemes for 08...OK

    ok...laurenlex has already pointed this anyway. But thanks, wheelhot.

    Actually the new graphics and using the frames natural aesthetics is perhaps the best that Giant has to this day come up with...very nice.
