- I am selling a Giant Reign. The frame is blue and a size large 2010 that was purchased new in 2011. It is in perfect condition and was professionally maintained. All bearings and suspension components were serviced per manufacturers specs and it shows. This bike REALLY is in GREAT shape. There are no excessive rock chips or dents in the frame. I installed downtube and chainstay protectors before it was taken to the trail. I will try to post pictures but until then my description will have to do. It is built up with full Fox suspension that includes a DHX air 4.0 shock with boost valve and a 2011 Fox 36 rc2 fit cartridge fork. Both components have been serviced twice a season whether they needed it or not. The bike is also built with Avid Elixir R brakes, Race face atlas handlebars, and a Race Face Evolve 2X9 crankset with bashgaurd and a Sram x-9 rear derailleur and shifters. The wheels are Mavic Crosslines and I will be including a set of anodized blue Azonic Outlaws wheels (that match the frame) that are a bit heavier but are great if you want to take it to a bike park. The Crosslines are very stout but are lighter and are great for general trail riding. It also come with a Crankbrothers Joplin 4 w/ handlebar remote and a Fizik seat. I have a spare Joplin 3 without the remote (under the seat lever) that I would swap out for a bit less $$.The tires are Maxxis Minion on the front and a Continental Race King on the back. I purchased this bike with the intent to keep it a very long time so I have many spare parts for it that have never been used but now I must sell it. I have a lot of extra parts that are brand new in the boxes still. These include a FSA Mega EXO bottom bracket, Sram 970 cassette, and a Sram x-7 rear derailleur just to name a few. This bike has been built with new part from 2011-2012 so everything is new and current gen.I really haven't put many miles on this bike and it looks great and rides even better. I am selling this bike with all the extra parts for $2400. I would possibly sell some of the components separately but I would like to keep it all together as much as possible. I will also sell this bike with the Joplin 3 post instead of the Joplin 4 and without the extra parts and wheel set for $2100.
- FYI-Here is the website for the Altitude Adjustment Cross in Longmont the weekend before Nats:
Brook Watts is promoting the event as was also the promoter for the "Gateway Cross!"
Brook is a great guy and good ambassador for cross. He's also a pretty fast cross racer when you consider how much time he spends traveling and promoting events. Those of us that have tried to promote and race know how difficult that is.
