Looks like the 2012 Giant Glory has surfaced... First impressions indicate another winner!

Looks awesome. I want to see some the geometry charts to see if they changed the BB height and headtube angle though.

i thought they were re-routing the cables off the down tube

are they only going to have 1 glory model? because theres no 00 or 01 near the headtube

glorys always have the best colors/paint jobs (and saddles..that thing is about $170)....

I am pretty disappointed with the whole bike. they don't seem to have changed anything except for the paint job ( which IMO isn't the prettiest around) i hope this isn't the final model for 2012 because I was expecting some bigger changes

I knows three models.

I've just replaced the 010 glory for a demo 011 ( sorry abou that)...but man I love these glorys, to be honest in my unexperienced opinion never felt the geo out of place...and they are so light ..this demo weights like two glorys ..
the glorys is a little harsh in square bumps, but very easy to ride in tech sections...looking forward to see the new ones..

yeah i have the '10 one and I love, haven't changed the geometry or anything but those little things were what I was expecting them to change, like lowering the bb a bit

I also expected a change more in line with that seen in other brands, cable routing and geometry, which is what I most needed in this model that is 2 years old. Greetings.

the last model-range was out there for at least three years... don't think this one will be replaced much sooner- cosmetics only!
The paint-job looks great, but I never really liked the frame design- too 'trek'. I love the looks of the old Glory: little more edge to it.
