    Okay, I have took the plunge and ordered my new whip. I have got to wait 6 yes 6 long weeks till shop gets it in. My new whip to join my trance is the giant reign 27.5.2 🙂 😀 8)

    I have no pics of the actual bike yet but have this

    Any one have any dealings with the bike? Is it as good a climber and descender as they say it is.

    I am never going to be able to use this bike to its full potential but I hope it will give me the confidence to try things I wouldn’t normally look twice at. 🙂

    Can’t f’ing wait 🙂

    Thanks, I wanted one when it was the x1 however I have been told that they now are far more superior. The slack head angle is enduro and still climbs well with it. I will have test this out on some good climbs maybe Innerleithen will be a good test. Just can’t wait tbh now. I love my trance I think I will keep the 140mm for trails and even use the reign to get my cardio up a bit. Just need the skills and already got some courses to better my skills. 😀

    I think it will be worth the new 3piece suite carpet and complete new front room. The sacrifices for the love of biking 🙂

    Can’t wait to get it thrash the trail and upload pics/vids.

    How would this compare to the likes of say a specialized 160 enduro or my other choice cube fritz 150.

    I seriously hope I made the right choice. From the million reviews I have found I think I have………….proof is in the pudding hey?

    Another one my old slx crank and shifters are they able to swap out for the deore and put on my reign or they not compatible size wise? Both 2 x10

    I know it feels like ages tbh already and I ordered it yesterday. Going to find out Friday exact date 🙂 I noticed that pic is of the reign 27.5 not the 2. Still more or less the same bar the components 🙂

    Do you know gunner if I am able to replace upgraded components on my trance with the deore on this one?

    Okay probably should have read this, too late. I brought some shimano saints mx80 today from CRC. 40% off; they look great should be awesome on reign probably on the heavy side but built to last.
