The time has come to sell my partner in crime. This bike has done everything I have ever asked of it and more. It's been an awesome machine that has allowed me to ride everywhere around Southern BC and Alberta: Bike parks, the Shore, Sea to Sky, Coastal, Interior, the Rockies. It's an extremely capable All Mountain bike that loves to go fast, particularly on the descent. Bought new at the end of Summer 2011. Not ridden much the first couple of years. Recently upgraded to 10 speed Shimano drivetrain: Zee shifter & SLX with clutch, 30t Race Face NW ring, never dropped a chain. Race Face Grips Dropper Post Mostly stock spec with Fox 36 forks -heavy spring, DHX-RC2 with 550lb spring Elixir brakes, Race Face cranks, bars, stem, some shin-chomping pedals Comes fitted with stock tires with about 85% on both. Maestro lower linkage replaced with upgraded linkage piece from Giant last year. Suspension serviced this season inc new DU bushing Brakes Bled & replaced rear rotor Bike is in great mechanical shape, frame is covered in 5 years of mountain biking stories. Dings, scratches, scuffs, scars, rock chips (gasp!) Cleaned up and ready to go, I rode this up until the day my new bike showed up and spoiled the party. Here is a great pinkbike review of the Reign X1 from the same year, basically the same bike. http://www.pinkbike.com/news/giant-reign-x1-review-2010.html Video of its capability in the Sea to Sky region http://www.pinkbike.com/video/146275 Questions answered so far: * Frame is a large which equates to 20", the wheelbase feels on the tighter side (nimble) and the cockpit is a little shorter than on some newer bikes. * I'm 6"2, 180lbs. *It climbs well for a bike of its age, at the time it was considered to be an impressive climber despite its downhill preferences. Newer bikes have improved, but we can't compare to new bikes when we are in this price bracket. I have a bunch of other photos I can add once I find them Would rather sell to someone in the local area if possible. Reach out if you have questions.
