I’ve got the same bike. Did you ride the stock deluxe shock before swapping for the X2? Wondering how much of a difference people are feeling.

I’m 174cm, running a M frame, my 3rd Medium Giant. (2012 Trance, 2017 Trance)
Due the steep seat, I find the cockpit feels “short”. The “reach” is listed as longer than the 2017 Trance, but with a (shorter than stock) 50mm stem on the ‘17 Trance it is Still approx 20mm longer (sit bones - handlebars) than the 2020 Reign.

I’m planning on trying a 10mm longer - 50mm stem.

It’s not terrible, but I find the difference a bit “confusing”. Doesn’t seem too “natural”.

Nice! You don't feel the bike is too small or cramped while seated and pedaling? I am also 172cm and was worried the bike is a hair too short.
