I saw both on the trail today...but then we are fairly close to Giant's HQ, so I wasn't sure if maybe these were some "insiders."

I've been told December for a Reign by Giant. At least for here on the east coast. Lucky you if you're able to get them sooner!

Must have been Giant employees or something, then. The "black cherry" color Reign sure looked nice!

Word is...

Word on the street is that the new Maestro bikes will be going out around Mid-December to Mid-Jan. That's provided all the component manuf. have their parts available on time. Remember the Shimano dilema last year.

I called the dealer near my house, and he said he could have one shipped in 1 week ?

I work at a Performance, and our manager has been saying mid-november for a while now. We shall see.
I am also a Giant dealer and was told the same as the guy from Performance. Mid to late November.

well, when you get these bikes in store, can you measure the exact weight of the reign bike ( i'm interesting in reign 2), becuase i've read in december issue of MBUK and they tested reign 1. they also measured the weight and they say 32lbs, which is hardly belivable. can anyone confirm that.

That sounds a lot more plausible than the 28 pounds for the reign 1 that i have seen.

I'd expect the top of the line version with Crossmax wheels to be 30lbs or under, too though.
I've got a Kona Dawg Deelux...by no means a light bike, and it weighs ~30lbs, and that's with heavy Mavic 223's and Deore hubs.

Will be able to tell you by next week what these bikes weigh, as the Giant Rep called today and said the Trance and Reign will be in next week.

For all your future Trance owners the first batch of Trance 4's came in today. What an awesome ride.

Not to rain on the Trance parade, because it looks to be a very sweet ride, but I am an NRS fan. Did you happen to receive any NRS models yet. Thanks.

I have an NRS 2 on order. I hope it to be here (Toronto, Canada) in a couple of weeks according to Giant. Even though I likely won't be able to ride it, I am anxious to see it. I am not even sure 100% of the Cdn spec, but apparently it is very similar to the US. I just want a composite frame with good components, the usual from Giant. I got a sweet deal, I know I won't be dissappointed, I am just impatient. Giant still has not updated the Cdn website.

b12yan88, I am not sure of your questions. I don't have the bike yet, so I can't comment on your questions. When I get it, I will be posting pics for sure. Perhaps your response was regarding the Trance 4?

Thinking about getting the Trance frame set. Going to use it more for trails then XC. Is the ride plush or firm? Thanks.
