Thinking about picking up a used Medium 2018 Glory 2 as m first proper DH bike

Anyone know what the stock spring is installed in the Marzocchi 380r that comes with the bike?
The rear spring on the bike is a 350 which I'm going to need to swap for a 450.

Wondering if I need to change the fork spring too? I'm 200 kitted

thanks
should say on giant website archive

Has anyone here made their glory a mullet? Really thinking about throwing the new Marzocchi (Fox) 58 29 on the front and a new front 29er wheel and see how that works. All my other bikes are 29ers and they seem to work better for me

I sized it out before and I thought there was room for a 29 in the back of the bike too. Would raise the bb though.

Yup, only have one ride since converting it so no detailed review yet. Initial impressions are good and pretty much what you would expect - slacker head angle and higher bb.

Forgot to measure the bb before, so I'm not sure exactly how much higher the it got, but it's still reasonable now. ~352mm with the crowns down as far as possible.

Feels like it needs more speed than before to "come alive", but my test ride was on mellower terrain so I am reserving judgment until I get it on proper DH trails.

To bad it’s impossible to find wheels and forks right now

I was lucky because I already had the 27.5 DVO Onyx DC and all that is required to swap to 29 is new lowers, which were in stock. Had my LBS lace up a new wheel (had to pay through the nose for the rim, they're in short supply and people seem to be jacking prices unfortunately) and I was good to go!

It seems as though there are shortages of everything right now...having trouble finding even simple wear items like an 11-speed Shimano chain. Trying to resist the urge to stock up when I can find consumable parts that I need. Seems like lots of people are doing it, which certainly isn't helping the situation.
