2010 Giant Glory 0 Downhill MTB

'10 Glory 0 8" travel DH bike

I’ve received a few inquiries about the 2010 Giant Glory 0. This is a great downhill MTB with a full 8″ of travel. Last yearโ€™s Glory was heavy. The โ€˜10 model has been in development for two years. The result is a unbelievable 1.5kg (3.3lb, or 26.8 percent) weight loss.

2010 Giant Glory DH

NSMB have their own intial thoughts about the new ’10 Glory DH from Giant. It’s basically a new bike with a lot of weight savings and 8″ of travel, down from 8.8″. Weight weenies can pull the weight of this DH bike down to about 36lbs, but stock weight is 37.9lbs, which is good for a DH bike.

Taizhong Mountain Bike

Today I went to Taizhong to check out a mountain bike. I was told it was about 3-4 years old and had less than 100 miles on it. It was a downhill racing mountain bike, so it wouldn’t be a lot of use going uphill. Still, I was thinking of adapting it to daily use.

All the components are the best in their class and have less than 100 miles on them. It is worth pretty much three times what I am asking, but not many people want such a serious bike.

What was supposed to be a quick meet, greet and inspection turned into something completely else as we searched for a bike shop to service the said bike. The shifter wasn’t working. To get it specced up like I wanted, I’d have to buy a new crank, a new front derailleur and new shifters.
