Is it just me or is this the steepest seattube angle ever, thing looks just shy of 90 degrees, looks crazy. But I love the bike and really want one although at this rate I dunno if its gonna happen, Giant USA still doesnt even have it on the website. Prolly end up on something else before they get their act together.

Saw an article on this bike, says the motor design wont allow any shorter chainstay than what they have got. I would think that would be one of the top design priorities of these motor manufacturers, allowing frame flexibility.

It's like ground hog day...

Maybe when any forum threads get to the second page, they should automatically delete everything and start again seen as no one reads them ? ?

:LOL: Very true, but it does mean we can legitimately whinge again as more time has passed and we still know Jack about this bloody bike!?!

I’ve reserved a cube 160AT, a Mondraker level RR and a Haibike Nduro 7 and will most likely take the first that turns up. But it’s the giant that I really want, even though it does look like a unicycle with bars! :giggle:

Maiden voyage today. Wicked ride. Can't wipe the smile off my face. Gonna remember to take some pics in the woods. I weighed my Med with pedals and bottle cage, tubeless, 52.3 lbs.
View attachment 72323
Thats a pretty good weight considering it has the preferable double down casings and is a considerable departure from previous giants. Motor has such a great shape. Its probably the bike that i would change the least out of any. If i made a change it'd just be personal contact point choices. Possible i wouldnt change one thing and i cant renember that ever happening

Definitely will be getting a different seat, not a fan. Had a good ride today, climbs great. Downhill I needed to weight the rear a little more then my acoustic bike but that could be a 27.5 wheel thing also. Turns tight in all the switchbacks I rode today. Couple pics from today.

have you tried to use the app to set the motor assistance? I read you can only get to 360% instead of 400% as stated, it's weird

How does the new Yamaha motor compare to the EP8, Bosch Gen 4, Brose? As far as noise, power, and natural pedal feel goes.
The motor is not very loud. It is probably slightly louder then the Brose but quieter then the Shimano and Bosch. There is no rattle like the Bosch and Shimano. It does like a slower cadence. I tried a very steep hill climb and tried to spin and muscle my way up like on an acoustic bike and there was not much assistance and I failed. So I backed off on the cadence and let the motor do its job and flew up there easily.

Hi I am writing from Australia and have a 2022 Giant Reign E 0 on order like everybody here following this thread we are all very interested to hear your opinions and any useful general information that you may be able to pass on e.g. range in what power mode, engine performance,bike handling with the flip chip in high Verses low position etc.

Thanks

But he said :


good morning everyone and welcome to this new video today's video is about I have already shown this protagonist to you first of all here in front of us and we talk of a bike that we already have several times over presented then we speak of a joyrain terrains is more then a bike from
enduro pushed pedal assisted by thegiant house the bike presents concepts

(sorry, stripped all the times out but can't be bothered editing it all into paragraphs and fixing the spelling)

very innovative from the point of view

geometric and also technical we have them for you

already presented we will review them together with

this detail but the video in the

specific wants to present you the version

queen of the zaia 3 range in the most 2022 e

so version 0 you see here

front this version here optimizes and

completes the radical project and of

total innovation of the new already on 3

more because it has some

fittings

both in terms of quality and

technicalities that make the giant rain
1 o'clock
become one of the reference models

absolute for the 2022 range of

technical innovation and also how

always been giant great value

quality price then follow us in

this continues the video we will see

together we will talk about the details again

of the innovative features of the

re in the more 2022 but above all of the

characteristics of the fittings of

this area 0 follow us together thanks


taking up the general concepts together

of the gamma ray in the more 2022 we have a

geometric level innovation that sees

its main innovation

in adopting a wheel format

different diameter between the rear

the anterior the so-called mallett therefore

we have a 29 front with

170 mm of speech wheel in the note

front and a 27 and a half rear

with 160 mm available le

characteristics of the front only that

for all setups I love forks

21 full of the latest generation then

with stems diameter mm and rear is

characterized its 160 mm travel

data of a new master system a

perfect jouyet but in this one

declension has been rethought

just for


match this enduro pc

electric therefore substantially a

great support at the level of origins

it gave you precisely from the opposition

to the increased weight of an electric bike

and the loads for which he has thought of

bce of the kind that also looks a lot to the

downhill bike park and big jumps

so much read where structural is

combined with this new geometry

we also naturally have data

innovative geometric shapes like a tube

very upright steering column

very open an elongated hedgehog

basically how 21 bikes want

more modern

another common innovative feature a

all gamma ray plus one is new

engine and in collaboration with whom he loves

but customized by the Taiwanese house is

here we have innovative engine from

footprint point of view

very small and also in weight among the most

lightweight ever

we also have a new command unit

a central control unit e

innovative that has also gone to

solve the previous problems of the

giant range of watertight

remote command which is therefore much more

compact integrated in the knob e

limited just to have on one

function of

remote and remote impulses while the whole

control unit and integrated

inside the frame then much more

protected for agents these are a

po the characteristics of the giant rain e

2022 this video with the wanted

show you what is the top of the range

of this range then to version 0

that you see here in front of the data la

main feature is one

spectacular paint color

iridescent metallic green that yes

matches perfectly

to suspensions of house wells

factory people then with the stems in

golden farmhouse

we are therefore in front of the fox 38 rc2 e

excuse his creatures with the cartridge

then burst mice but all the force there

tactical question but the shock absorber

rear is a x2 people club

new lever will block you that this effect

it is called with regards to the

transmission instead we have a

top-of-the-range equipment will be a

relations with the box were Catholic


praxis carbon crankset mounted

on the carbon frame and if none on the

engine always the carbon point

very high quality we also have the

giant house wheels that sky high

factor
quality so we have a channel

30 with kardon pool rims fitted

on many sites he therefore wears wheels

which we find only for probably in

difficult optional equipment

find them even on the most noble houses

especially as standard equipment

then even in this price range that

we will see very competitive last

characteristic

unique and as in reality also satin

components for this zero set-up

it is the 750 factor battery then

the only one on this staging for

the reina range therefore we have a

battery capacity increased by

very high level and with the

common feature for now was of the

of the range to have a separate cover

then you can remove the battery

keeping the protective cover for i

internal wiring and be able to take advantage of the

bike in bike park mode and without the

weight of the additional battery

we also have in the brake department of the

components of the highest level

we have 4 piston tail in person

rsc therefore top of the range even with

the screws option

customized in petroleum color

beautiful all the very beautiful beach

so I invite you to come and see the

shop because, however, as for all

for every video we are making there

remember this year the bikes are few

you have to hurry to get there

at least to touch the shop firsthand

because in quotation marks they do not last long then

I invite you to come here in the shop at

find us talking about it together to leave

also rise above from this beautiful one

new already the train and more 0 2022 hello me
I wait thanks

How does that compare to the 625Wh? The frame specs are not different for Reign 0, 1 & 2...

Not to bad for that’s size, Bosch 750 is 4.4kg IIRC

However Specilized 700 is sub 4kg

Just rode 30kms and climbed 1250m in 2 hours. Pretty much 3 laps of one of my local riding spots. 1/2 the climb was single track and 1/2 fire road. I used eco(level 1) and basic(level 2) on the single track climbs and basic and Active(level 3) on the flatter fire road. I used Active and Sport(level 4) on the first 2 laps of the steep fire road climbs and Sport and Power(level 5) on the last lap as I was getting tired. Eco was used on the downhill. I set PR's on all my downhill runs by quite a bit, I don't count uphill for obvious reasons. These are legit single black diamond downhill runs. I used 69% of the battery. It easily could have done another lap but I was done. I used the higher power levels because I wanted to get as much riding in as I only had a 2.5 hr window to ride. Oh and for those that were wondering I weigh 180lbs(81.5 kg) fully kitted up. Cheers

and what about the automatic mode? I'd like to know if the assistance is too much?
I tried the automatic mode and I wasn't a fan of it. To me it seemed to have too much power when you really don't need it. But that is just my opinion and I will try it again. Someone else might like it.

I tried the automatic mode in a square and it seemed to help too much, but it would be useful to try it uphill on the trails

On the fireroad hills it seemed to work well. On the trail and on flatter sections it was too much and felt jerky or not natural.
