Say you had an 06 reign and a reign x, is the only difference in the frames the linkage? could you effectively convert your reign frame to a reign x with new linkages?

or are there other differences?

No. The geo is different, the X has a bigger glory hole to accomodate a piggy back coil shock, etc.

for the sake of the next person wondering about this - here is the best answer i've gotten

mtbr -
The bigger differences in the frames are that the Reign X:

* is a bit slacker (by a degree or so)
* has burlier tubing (especially obvious around the headtube region)
* has a bit lower BB
* fits a reservoir shock - larger 'glory hole' ('08 reigns do that now as well)
* uses a slightly longer shock (7.875" x 2.25" on Reign X vs. the 7.875" x 2.0" on the reign).


You could run shock with 2.25 stroke on your reign to get an extra .75" of travel. I've done this and a lot of others have as well with no issues. I don't know if the rockers are actually different though.

Cheers,
