Hello,
I just thinking about buy reign 2015,but for first,i have a couple of questions like:
-what about frame durablity? Did it "like" to cracking? Where's weak points of frame?
-Bearing https://imgur.com/a/lqoiG did i markt them all? I'm wondering how much should i buy to replace for new (sorry for dumb question,this will be my first full suspension bike,so i need to have certainty Smile )
-what about feelings from ride? Did bike is running confidently in donwhill,and what can u guys just say about whole bike.

I'll be using bike to trips,and some downhill.

hey mate, the 2015-2017 reigns are awesome. unsure about the alu personally, but the carbon frame is a blast and i've got mates who have loved the alu version. check out the Reign group in the groups forums on here. plenty of advice!

I bought my current 2015 R2 last year and it was pretty well used when i received it. Since then i have put over 200 rides on it and apart from wear and tear on the drive train the bike has been great. Frame has held up to my 90kg thrashing it and the rockshox pike and shock have been pretty much faultless. Climbs quite well for a super slack frame geometry tho a good level of fitness helps there. And the descents are wicked fun. 160mm travel is plenty.

Thank You guys for response. I have last two questions.
- what do you think about mixing brake caliper and brake handle? In bike which I'm thinking about to buy have Saint brake caliper and xt brake handle. Did it can be someway failure?
-what about the bearings? Did i mark them all corectly? Smile
