    160mm in above link

    6.3" in above link which equals 160mm!

    160mm in above link!!


    Still unsure?
    There are more ways to find out:
    Google for "Giant Reign" and ask a Friend to help interpret the results
    write Giant an email. They usually reply even to the dumbest requests

    First of all I don't see any info about REAR travel at all.
    I just suppose that front and rear the same and then it comes with 160 = 6.3.
    But, guys from https://www.tftuned.com/spring-calculator has written me: one says 6, another one 6.25.

    So, a little bit confused.. ))
    OK

    25.4mm = 1 inch

    160 / 25.4 = 6.29" ( round up to 6.3")

    It was interesting and funny, but not anymore.
    i gave links only to be clear what model (year) this thread is about.

    the queston is - did somebody ACTUALLY measured rear whel travel on any reign 2016 by YOUR OWN??

    I just measured without shock and it's 166 mm, which is 6.54". With shock frame is a little bit not stable while measuring so will wait until some help. Anyway, it's possible to be not 160 mm..

    it's important for me because I have to input rear whell travel to spring calculator, and even 6.3 and 6.5 makes a difference in spring rate.
    OK

    Well, here are the numbers:
    without shock - difference between heights is 166 mm
    with shock (air out) - difference between heights is 150 mm

    So, if such a type of measuring (linear) is correct the travel is 5.9".
    OK

    Your right was abit interesting at first, then not funny. You thru 3 links at us with it clearly stating rear shock 160m. I did not see anything spelled out in inches. Nor did you explain your reasoning for needing this info needing to be confirmed. Then you throw in additional info from some other source and measurements of your own.

    Surprised steel calf hasn't blasted you on it yet....:0
    Wait whuuut, who did he tell you that!?!?....
