Giant Reign 2011, The Transformation.

October 19, 2010

Eager to enter the manly hood of long travel full-suspenion bikes, the owner purchased a complete 2011 Giant Reign and immidiately have plans to have it transformed into a trail blasting, semi DH machine! The bike was rolled in unridden with Fox suspension system and 2011 Shimano 3×10 SLX groupo. Having a matt grey paint with beautiful 2011 blue and grey theme, the owner is ready to throw in some blues!

First up, a 2011 RockShox Tapered Solo Air Lyric 170mm was assembled. And to match the new stiffer and lighter 20mm Maxle-lite from the original 15mm QR from Fox fork.The hubs have to be changed to a pair of Hope Pro 2 in Anodized blue laced on Sun Ringle Single Track Welded Winter Camo Disc Rims. Stopping power and brake reliability has also been increased with the use of Shimano’s Saint 4 pot brakes.

Additional blue bits coming from an upgraded Fox DHX 5.0 Air, KS Seatpost colour bits in Blue and Hope 34.9 bolt on Seat clamp. Also shown in picture, custom routing for KS seatpost cable. Headset spacers have alson been changed to Hope in anodized blue to make sure the “blue” consistancy! Adding on an Attitude Bikes custom made 32T Ring protector and removing the big ring means more ground clearence.

And now for the complete look.

    Hi, I am wondering how does your KS adjustable seatpost work? I am considering to buy a RS Reverb for my 2008 Giant Reign, do you know if both models 2008 / 2011 have the same seat clamp diameter (34.9)??

    By the way your bike looks great!

    Thanks in advance for any info!

    A RS Reveb will be a better choice!

    Too late, I pulled the trigger on a KS i950 , since the Reverb has so many bad reviews, I hope I wont regret it.

    I am also interested in the KindShock Color Pimp Kit, where can I find it? google throws no results.
