My '15 glory was a beast. Only had problems with the derailleur.

After all kinds of abuse and crashing (also rock strikes) since 2015 the frame is still in one piece, very solid. The paint however is a different story, it gets chipped very quickly.

Yeah that how most of my Giants have been to. The glory I'm getting has had the paint stripped off it and it's raw now. It looks pretty good.

I think Giant Glory frames are about as tough as they come. Mines a 15 and I take pretty good care of it and its still running strong

Has anyone else run a Ohlins on a Giant Glory? I am running the same spring as on the Demo 8 and its seems good.
Any feedback would be great.

Please let me know what spring works for your weight?
I am using a 480 Ohlins spring for 95kgs

Fury for shorter wheel base/higher stack/steeper head angle but the glory felt faster over all, I never road them back to back, and it's really specific but I liked the more sloped top tube of the glory felt easier to do tables and stuff.

Does anyone have a opinion on the 2017 Marzocchi 380 cr2r? I am thinking of replacing my 2017 Rockshox Domain rc with one and was wondering if it would be a worthwhile difference.

Hi I have a stock 2017 Giant Glory 2 that I just bought. I am replacing the stock Rockshox Domain RC fork with a 2017 Marzoccchi 380C2R2. I haven't received the new fork yet but I realized that my stock fork has a upper crown that arches upward and the fork I ordered has a flat upper crown. I am new to dual crown forks so my question is will I still be able to run the stock amount of spacers under the top crown or will I not have enough room? Do I need to order a different top crown? The headtube on the Giant Glory is not very big comared to a lot of DH bikes so I hope it wont be a problem.

If anyone can help me out. I broke the stock sram x0 carbon crank on my 2015 advanced 0 last season while landing off of an 8' drop to transition. I don't want to replace the cranks with carbon. From what I've found the specs are 83mm 165 and 34t chainring. would that chainring fit on any other crankset i buy? Im thinking of switching to Shimano Zee. What do you guys out there think?

You need to measure the bolt circle diameter of the chainring and compare it. Google it, its easy. Yeah, any 83mm crankset will work, you might need a new bottom bracket too though.
