My Reign hasn't gotten much use this year due to testing the Spectral 125 and the Fluid but yesterday I chose the Reign to go ride Civil Disobedience in Powell River. Day trip with the ferry from Comox, met up with riding buddy visiting family there.
Awesome trail, not super difficult but it was certainly hard work up and down. Loved the raw natural singeltrack and was kind of glad I was on the Reign.
A few spots with nice views along the trail as well:
Hope your ride started from the ferry terminal 😉
It's the CSU.
Got sick of replacing FAUX CSUs and waiting for Selva DC so I installed an Öhlins DH38 m.1 180mm 46mm on my MOJO G16 this weekend. Complete with Straitline 28mm DM stem and SQ Labs 16º 30mm bars. I see zero downsides to this besides End-juro fashion police scoffing at this as it wasn't offered on their prepackaged S-Works/SC/whatever trendy fantastic plastic wonder bike they bought

After a season of admittedly not as much riding as I would have hoped, yesterday I started to really click with my G1 - quite an adjustment to riding style coming from my last full-suspension experience being DH bikes 10+ years ago.
Unfortunately, the G1 and I aren't the only thing clicking. I developed a pretty loud clicking/creaking from the front end. I used a fair bit of grease for the headset so suspect it's not that, but will pull it apart and will also perhaps re-grease stem bolts and front axle while I'm at it to rule those elements out. I'm worried that my Lyrik has developed the dreaded CSU creak. Any insight on definitive diagnosis of that issue, or experience dealing with RS for CSU issues? My current thought is I'll try to put a drop of oil on the CSU interface after re-greasing and re-assembling the front end to see if that gets rid of the issue, then wait until the winter to submit a warranty claim if it does turn out to be the problem. Really wish Formula would hurry up and release a dual-crown enduro fork. Otherwise, might have to look at an EXT fork to suit the rear shock, but the pricepoint is a tough one.
