Hi,

I have a 2015 Giant Reign 2 and have just fitted a Rockshox Vivid Air as I got one quite cheap and I seemed to blow through my monarch really quickly. Just wondering if any else has one fitted and how they set it up?

the 2016 models(the 2015 had the small volume version) had the larger debonair cans on the shock...which was worse for those model Reigns

i found i had to put all the air volume spacers(i am heavy so it makes it worse) in to get it to work properly.....so get some volume spacers and instal some and try until you find the sweet spot

Is that all? Doesn't need any measures?
Thanks.

The bb shell is 89.5, put a 2.5 spacer behind the drive side cup to make it 92.

Because you DON'T need front mech, trust me. Because everybody everywhere already usong 1x and will never go back.

Just quickly pointing out the reason why I'm not going 1x in the front: probably in an ideal world you don't need it, because you can have a very wide range even with 1x11. However my experience with any kind of bike, and during many years of biking, is that the front derailleur fails much less often than the rear. I often have problems with the rear derailleur (often minor issues, sometimes a bit bigger), and in practice, and especially while going downhill on a MTB, I keep the chain on a middle sprocket in the back and use the front mech to quickly switch gear.

HELP!

So I'm still running my trusty 2015 reign 2. She runs well and I love her, but today tragedy hast struck:

Some idiot (me) put the rear axle (modded when the maxle handle thing broke off years ago) into the frame without the hub, as the tyre was being patched up and I didn't want to lose the axle.

I apparently went far too tight and now my axle is stuck on the "a" piece that has the thread.

I can't unscrew it and I don't know how to do this without damaging the axle. help me?

(I've removed the A piece and the axle from the bike, but I still can't get it out)

Reign Advanced 1 2016
Stock fork 160mm, 15x100.
https://www.giant-bicycles.com/us/reign-advanced-27dot5-1-2016

Thinking about getting some new fork.
First question is about standards: 99% of forks today are 15x110 BOOST versions. Is there any issues about using that kind of forks with that bike? Yup, I know I'll have to get a new hub 15x110 boost.

Second question: thinking about DVO Diamond D1 170mm, 15x110 boost.
https://dvosuspension.com/fork/diamond-d1/
170mm meaning - 150 to 170 travel. I guess I can adjust that fork to 160mm, but - what if using 170mm, any issues?


Thanx.

One more questio please:

what if - instaling DVO Diamond 29" - 150mm - 51mm Offset - Tapered - 15x100mm ??
Yup, I'm talking about going "mullet".. )
