    So far that is my dream DH bike, followed by the Kona Stab Supreme. The Glory is such a nice looking bike... God i want one!!

    I want to get a really high quality picture of it, like a 500kb-1mb picture, so i can print it off big and put on my wall like what I have done with some of the Kona's. Their pictures on their site are really big.

    This is the biggest i've found so far, and its from the US Giant site...

    guys, tell me pls
    if you take a look at clamps of the fox40 you will see that on the "black" bike they are lower than on the blue one... I also noticed that distance between lower clamp and the o-rings on the top of the lower legs is much bigger than the travel of the fork... it's about 230mm I think... what for? can I lower clamps to change geometry?

    U can change placement of lower crown, still u are restricted by the limits (on marzocchi there are stickers informing about the limits, bet that on Fox too). Yes changing the crown position will change the geo.

    I dig the blue one. Very nice colour. The white japanese version aint so bad, but if the decals were red, it would have looked much better.

    it's medium, not alot in it between small and medium, i have always ridden a small
    but this feels a nice fit.

    Rides well and although it's a 8 inch fork it rides along the flats and up hill real sweet.

    definitely, the pics are taken as soon as i built it up so hadn't touched the sterrer or spacers.

    it weighs 42 pounds, give or take 1 pound on my fish scales.

    the standard tyres are super heavy and thick.

    ok, thank you
    i'd prefere take 1lb
    you say Michelin tires are thick? (I checked it - 1250g each ) US version of glory has very thin (cause a lot of snake bites) Kenda Blue Groove and Nevegal tires... ever wire version wights 880g size 2,5"
    I hope someone will have US glory, soon

    Just FYI to whoever said the bike was navy color, the first bike posted is black. Second is in fact team blue. That is how team blue looks on all Giant's bikes.

    I dont think you could ever get me on a dowhill bike... or at least not to purchase one. Not very practical if you ask me, I take my NRS-3 on the road all the time no problem. Good luck doing that on a Glory or Faith,..
    One of my friends recently died of a coke overdose and it really got me thinking, "damn, maybe I should start drinking pepsi"

    That doesnt help this thread very much. It has nothing to do with how how well it will ride on the road .

    I would love to have that bike.

    Idea! Just picked up my Glory

    Well, I've been reading about the Glory for months and I finally picked mine up today (US version).
    The fish scale at the bike shop showed 42.5 lbs (16.5" frame and No pedals).
    At home my digital bathroom scale showed 43.4 ibs. The bike came with really light Kenda 2.5 tires and Maxxis H-D tubes. Not bad but not what has been posted on some of the other Giant sites.
