  • 2011 Giant MTB Line

    This year, Giant will release an Anthem X 29er. It’s been seen around for a bit of time, but it’s a good move for Giant MTBs. In order to make the 29er behave like a 26-inch they changed the head angle up to 71.5°. The bottom bracket is kept low and the chainstays are short. […]

    Victor from Velocite built up a Flux for himself. It’s a carbon fiber hardtail that the company is offering. It looks pretty interesting. The lines and geometry are standard for hardtails. I find the slope of the tubes interesting.

  • 2010 Giant Glory 0 Downhill MTB

    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 year’s Glory was heavy. The ‘10 model has been in development for two years. The result is a unbelievable 1.5kg (3.3lb, or 26.8 percent) weight loss.
