What does that bad boy weigh? Still eyeing a Trance Advanced 1 or Troy as my first choices for a new trail bike but if the Reign isn't too heavy I may have to try it as I love me some Fox 36/Float X2 action. (Yes I know the Trance and Reign will ride differently).
You have some of the same bikes on your list as mine. On a Trance SX now with a decent build. Looked at the new 2017 Trance Adv 1, lots of good, but the 34 and Float shock don't thrill me and so far not all players have metric trunnion mount shocks. Ideally, the Adv 1 would have a 160/140 Talas 36 RC2 and a DB Inline or DB Air or X2 on it. Then it would be great. It would be really, really great !!!
I have crossed the Reign off my list. Had a 2016 Reign 1, nice bike but way different than the Trance and didn't work for me. Sold it and kept my older Trance.
Also looking at the Troy, Warden and now possibly the SC Bronson. Met a couple Warden riders last weekend who had nothing but high praise for Warden both climbing and descending. Reviews on the Bronson are really good. Anyone have experience on a 2016 / 2017 Bronson?
