Hi, one of the problems of my current bike (trance X3) is that the seat post is far too big! i have had to cut it down around 2 inches just so i could sit on it.
Even now i cant lower it to the level i want for steeper downhill sections but yet if i cut it down further it wouldnt be large enough for uphills/flats.
Is the giant reign any different? not Reign X just normal reign. thanks
