Catching Up With MadKats Racing
The MadCatz you are thinking of that produces aftermarket controllers for video games DID have a World Cup team. Riders such as Sam Hill, Nathan Rennie, Bryn Atkinson rode for them. This Madkats team is not the same thing.

For sale is my personal 2013 Giant Reign. I can sell the bike with either the Medium front triangle or the Large. The large has only a handful of rides on it, and the only damage would be from shipping the bike for a trip (see photos), so no major dents or dings. The Medium has been ridden longest, with the underside of the downtube having a few rock chips, and just more general wear from longer use. I will be shipping the bike with a brand new rear triangle, hardware, and bearings installed but never ridden. I am personally a bike shop mechanic, take good care of my bikes, and am fairly picky about parts and their integrity, and this bike has been really well kept after, as it was my only bike for sometime.

This bike was purchased as a demo bike in store, was ridden once, but has never seen any real trail time. Virtually Brand New, Zero Blemishes. The Reign is the all-mountain bike of choice for any rider looking into a Giant. Frame featuring 150mm of active Maestro suspension, the this is your ticket to mastering technical climbs and the roughest descents. This is the personal choice of bike for most of the employees here at our shop. Top-tube is on the smaller side for an XL, and will fit nearly anyone above the 6' mark. In fact a few of us here have decided to size up, and install a smaller stem (which can be included with the purchase if you desire), to update it to a more agressive, modern feel.

I'm selling my 2012 Giant Glory with a BRAND NEW FRONT TRIANGLE. I built this bike as a race bike through the shop I work for, ground up, starting with the frame. The reason why I'm selling it is it doesn't get ridden as much as a bike of this caliber should due to the unreadily available terrain in the area to ride it. I've put a few good shuttle days, 2 races, and a handful of days at the local jump spot through the first summer of 2012. The bike sat for the entire year of 2013 except for 2-3 days total riding, mostly hike-a-bike. The bike is mechanic owned and maintained. The fork has about 6 rides total on the seals and will come with fresh oil. The fork has one main scratch in the right stantion high up on the leg, mostly right at the end of the 200mm mark, and numerous scratches to the lowers. It has been sanded down so that any contact with seals with be super smooth. The shock is second hand, has been rebuilt once by me before I built the bike, and will come with a set of seals that any capable mechanic can rebuild with. The brakes will come with a fresh bleed and new pads. The rear derailleur is brand new, never been ridden and is also coming with a brand new Jagwire Housing and Shimano Cable. The wheels have seen some dents, primarily the rear, but are still tensioned well. The rear tire is worn, but the front has 2 rides total. The cassette has been cut to 6 speeds, the guard is a G-Sport BMX hub guard, and the derailleur has been limited to only the six gears. Parts are as follows: Frame- 2012 Giant Glory - BRAND NEW FRONT TRIANGLE Fork- 2010 Fox 40 RC2 Shock- 2010 Fox DHX5.0 Crankset- Shimano Saint 165mm Chainring- E13 36t Chainguide- MRP G2 32-36 Chain- Wipperman Stainless Connex 9sp Cassette- Shimano SLX 11-21 6sp HubGuard- G-Sport BMX Rear Derailluer- Shimano Saint 9 Sp Shifter- Shimano XTR 9 Sp Cable/Housing- Shimano Cable / Jagware LEX Brakes- Shimano XT F+ R Rotors- Shimano XT 203 IceTech Rotors F+R Hubs- Hope Tech Pro 2 Evo F+R Spokes- DT Swiss Competition F+R Rims- DT Swiss EX500 F+R Tires- Maxxis Minion DHF F+R Tubes- Giant "Heavy Duty" DH tubes Presta Handlebar- Race Face Atlas 19mm rise, cut to 760mm Stem- Sunline 50mm Grips- ODI Troy Lee Designs Blk Seatpost- Thomson Elite Seat- Fizik Gobi Headset- Cane Creek 40s Zero Stack Buyer pays Shipping. Will ship to USA, Canada, and Mexico. Will ship at 50lbs in a normal sized bike box, professionally packaged, UPS, FedEx, or USPS. Will accept PayPal only. And the bike will be shipped once payment clears. If there are any questions, please feel free to shoot me a text message or a private message here.
