Hello there
I have a Grant Reign 2 year 2019 and i am looking for an upgrade for the shock but until now i can not find the same mesurements of the stroke Wich is 62.5mm
The most of the after market rear Shocks have 60-65-57.5 mm of stroke.
I am looking for a super deluxe debon air or even coil.
The bike comes with a Rock Shox deluxe 205x62.5 mm
Any one can give me an advice or suggestions

Have changed my stock RS Deluxe 62.5 to DVO Topaz with 65mm on Reign2 2018. No problems, fits and feels fine

DVO has some great options. Both the DVO Jade coil and Topaz 2 come in 62.5 and 65, both of which would fit your bike. Fox also has the Float X2 and DPX2, which both come in 62.5 and 65. I believe they will be releasing trunnion sizes of their coil shock (DHX2), to the public very soon. Make sure that when you buy a new shock that it is the Trunnion size, as the standard imperial sizing and metric sizing will not fit. I would honestly try to stay away from Rockshox rear shocks, the way they feel with the maestro suspension platform just isn't as superior as what other brands are offering; especially the DVO shocks which you can order specifically tuned for maestro.

Just wanted to let you guys know, that BikeYoke now offers a 34mm version of the Squeezy saddle clamp.
As far as I know, this dimension is exclusively used on many Giant Carbon Bikes, including the Reign.

Does anyone have the metallic blue shiny frameset already? Any real world pics?

Reign 2019

Have since upgraded to a OneUp 170 Dropper and switched to a 400lb coil (DVO guys are awesome!) Also added invisiframe as soon as I got it.

Very tempted by the new reign sx or the 2018 advanced 1 but I've read some reviews and they all say they aren't playful they are just for straight flat out riding. Is this the case as I play to visit some bike parks and enjoy jumpy playful bikes.

You gotta take what the reviews say with a grain of salt. Often when comparing bikes, they need to pick out the small details to show differences between bikes. I would say that the reign definitely isnt as playful as other bikes in this travel range. It does feel more like a plush DH rig. However that doesnt mean you cant set it up to how you want it. The DVO suspension is super tunable, and can dramatically change how the bike rides. The bike is super good; climbs better then expected, and smashes downhills.

Also, not playful may mean 'not playful at trail speeds'. It's a different story at a bike park. You'll be happy for the extra planted, burly feeling when you're in DH bike territory.

Totally! A poppy pedally trail speed jib bike this is not. Chuck in how you ride on top. Certain bikes make me feel more poppy or may make me want to straight line rocks, but it kinda depends on the speed you feel comfortable to be able to play etc. I'd say this bike likes to play fast, and likes it more and more the faster it gets, gravity is good. I like fast and my suspension is set to carry that pace and this bike loves that and happily gets sideways. Click out some rebound and a few tweaks and back off the throttle and pop around. Other bikes are more playful, the fast bikes will be at the bottom being Rad. I have a dirt jumper Smile
That said it climbs well I'm the weak link on that. DVO is tops!

On a side note, was riding a carbon bar with similar sweep and ride as stock. Switched to a raceface next with 35mm rise today. It is really good. Really really good on steeps, and easier pedalling position for me too

2019 Giant Reign SX 2 on sale for $2200 new in USA. Can that thing climb?

I bought a SX 2. I love it so far. I find it very playful and maneuverable, just not the easiest bike to manual cuz of the longer stays and feeling in the middle of the bike. Otherwise, one of the best feeling frames I have ever owned.

That being said, I'm selling it. The Large feels too small for me at 188cm. I want the next size up, and the Chameleon paint frame.
