Old fart still riding trails,
still learning, still crashing,
still digging, still loving it!

...2013 model Reign 1, so pretty much twice the price.

Giant Reign 27.5 1 - Review
I own a 2013 Reign 1 and agree with you. At least they've killed OD2, but a pity they went back to pressfit. Not fussed about internal cables, actually prefer externals on my model since it's not routed under the bb and downtube, but I reckon that rubber downtube guard needs to be longer and a bit wider, as my aftermarket carbon guard has taken impacts higher and on the edges of the downtube.

Giant Reign 27.5 1 - Review
FWIW, I paid $AUD2.4k for mine (RRP was 3k), even with the better suspension and drivetrain that's a pretty big jump in only 2 years.

For sure! Some trails are built for lots of rain, so have good drainage and an appropriate tread surface. Others get destroyed by people who probably have no idea how much work goes into building them.

Been happy with these: Will probably get a bit warm over summer in a month or two, but they are comfy.

Ask Pinkbike: Upgrade an Entry-Level Bike, Zee for XC, Bracing for Autumn's Chill
Only thing I don't rate in the SLX range are the shifters, especially since the lower covers fall off! Everything else is close enough to XT it doesn't matter. I've got SLX, XT and Zee cranks on my different bikes and can't detect any difference in stiffness. That being said, I've broken the clutch cam on my SLX rear mech, not hard or pricey to fix, but will probably give Zee a crack to see if it's better, although it may just have the same internals anyway...
