    Just wanted to add some more Reign Qs.

    Very keen on buying a Giant Reign Frame but need a few points clarified. Firstly what is the difference between the Reign and the Reign X, I think that that the X version has more travel and weighs more? Is it more strong? What is the differences in weight? Also what are the critical differences in a Reign frame throughout the years, I'm looking at a 2006 model. Also at 183cm and growing I guess I should go for the large? Are there differences in the different models of the Reign frame (reign 1, reign 2, etc)
    Also what would you expect to be a reasonable price range for just a second hand Reign frame and shock?
    I will have to run my current RS Reba's on the frmae untill I can afford some 160mm forks, apart from some geometry weirdness and weird feeling travel can I do this? Will it be totally pointless and I should just wait until I can afford both the frame and fork?

    Is the steerer tube width for 1 1/8" forks?
    If anyone could help, even posting a link to somewhere relevant that would be great! I have read a lot on it and have a lot of "I thinks" but I want to KNOW before I buy one.

    Most of those questions should be answered on their website, specs and geometry.
    0,1,2 models differ in components, they share the same frame.
    Yes, the X has a beefed up frame, 0.7" more travel (!) and more FR-oriented components.
    Figure 3-4 lbs heavier for similar spec'd X relative to Reign, but I'm not sure where you can find '06 specs anymore:

    Since most people run their Reigns with Pike or Talas forks, yes I think your Reba is too short for that bike.

    Yes they have 1 1/8" steerer, X1 included.
