Additional Info Was in a constant state of change. Pretty settled for now, just playing with different coils in the DHX2 and shims in the Lyrik. Just built my first few wheels for this and the A-Zero, going great so far. This one is at my dream-build level now, just fine tweaking things. I Got this bike standard and used in July 2017, since then have done multiple rebuilds, upgrades, broken the frame and had it repaired, more upgrades. I'm an auto mechanic and took to bike repair as a hobby. Now I have a well equipped home workshop and have rebuilt or serviced everything on my fleet of Reigns apart from a rear shock major service and carbon repair. When this frame was being repaired I picked up another front the same, with a crack, rode it for a month and now waiting for repair as a backup. Also picked up a Medium A-Zero for the rear end, which is now swapped to this bike and spray can flat-blacked out. This bike hanged my outlook on life, fun and fitness. The bike has given me good energy, it's heaps of fun to ride, very forgiving in rough terrain, and will ride up and down nearly anything I want it to. The last 6 months tuning the Lyrik and DHX2 has been a very interesting experience with a steep learning curve, a good challenge.
