Yes, I have a few hairline crack at the same spot! Should be covered under warranty.

I took it to the Giant dealer at Whistler and they said I can warranty for a new frame but I am going to wait until I head back to Toronto to file the warranty claim at my local Giant dealer. Yours should be covered too as long as you are the original owner.

Anyone know which rear brake adaptor for 2016? I'm putting on a Magura mt-7 w/160mm rotor.

Is frame a rear I.S. 160mm mount?

Hi does anyone have a picture of a 150 one up dropper inserted into a 2015 medium frame? My reverb has just died on me and I am looking to replace but am concerned I won't be able to slam another post far enough down. Cheers

I'd also be interested in this, my Reverb is on it's last chance, it's been such a pain. OneUp will be my replacement, but even though they say it has the shortest insert length, it is still longer than my Reverb.

Hello. Does anyone know if it's possible to upgrade stock 2015 Reign 2 LTD rear hub (Giant Tracker) to Micro Spline? I'm assuming the freehub body is DT Swiss, but I'm not sure about that.

Nah the tracker hub on the Reign 2 is a re branded cheap Alex hub iirc, you can't put DT internals in them.

Anyone know if I can put Schwalbe Nobby Nic 2,6" in the rear (giant reign 2017 frame)?
Will it rub during cornering or will it fit in general ?

I put a Maxxis Minion DHR 2,6" in a 35mm inner width rim in a Giant Reign 2016 and there is almost no space left, It should be less than half an inch of space. The wheel turns well but with a little mud already hits the frame

Schwalbe tires are known to be the true width, while the Maxxis are a bit narrower than they claim to be.

Don't really recommend to put something greater than true 2.35/2.4 on rear. Especially in mud conditions.

Yeah I can see why. I will ride mostly in dry conditions and I was wondering if its going to rub on the sides, because I had this issue on my other bike - I ran 2.6" maxxis tires in the rear of my Vitus Dominer and it had lots of extra space between the tire and the top part of the frame but it rub somehow. I also know that Schwalbe tend to be more wider.
The other thing is that I will be using 30mm inner width rim so I guess it would not spread as much like other + size rims (I could be wrong though)
