mate all the reviews on trustpilot that are 5 star are fake by him, i dont know how his still in business... i waited 4 months for a spring and some bolts are being told numerous times he had send it but he could never provide proof, he eventually told me he had no stock... he is a blatant liar!! i got a refund thru paypal, he messages me a month later saying my spring is in stock if i want it haha i told him to shove it.. im much happier with the SAR spring anyway. they were used by the giant factory offroad team and dave garland who was marcelos mechanic (danny harts now)runs the company with his wife

terrible behaviour for a company that mate. I have met Dave garland before and was a nice guy I never realised he was running SAR. I will be ordering one this week Smile

let me know how you go once its on mate, i have no doubt you will be impressed, SAR are a great company to deal with and make a excellent product.

Hi guy'z! First of all sorry 4 my bad English.
Currently riding on IronHorse Sunday Factory '08 and thinking about switching the frame. Have a good deal on Giant Glory 2 2015 frame, but other components will transfer from my Sunday. Any thoughts or opinions about Glory frame on 26" wheels?

The 2015 frame is designed for 27.5'' wheels. If you put 26'' wheels in the bottom bracket will be too low.

Difference in high of the wheel between 26" and 27.5" approx 25 mm ~ 1 inch. Axle in the middle of the wheel, so we divide 25/2 = 12.5 mm. On my IH lowest bb position ~ 139 mm, on Glory ~ 157 mm. 157-12.5 = 144.5 mm. That still higher that bb on my Sunday, so I don't worried about bb-high.

I'm 5'9" and on a medium 2016. Is the jump to large that drastic? Could be a costly mistake. I have longer arms and torso and like bigger bikes. Would it be too big? Considering a 2019 0

that's not exactly how it works and it's not ideal. Give it a shot and see what happens?
