Srh: do you really ride a 2000 glory? Ps stay away from Cam in case he starts sending you dick picks from his porn collection.

Giant didn't make a Glory in 2000. You of all people should know that.

...No dick pics Blank Stare

XB had the same Glory the year before that one or so... Mine was a 2010, sick bike. It's only real downfall was the steep 67deg head tube angle. Which in it's day wasn't that bad, as Santa Cruz V-10's held on to the steep ha's till pretty late in the game too. But they were still behind .

Now they are making 120 mm xc / Down country bikes with 65Deg head angles +/- and longer cockpits, rear ends, etc.... Things have changed. The older geo bikes were arguably much more fun to ride though.

Now the UnCrowned king of Nobles and ultimate DH shredder bike the new Stump Jumper Evo 29'er has only like 130 mm travel or something ridiculously low, with a 63deg head angle on a wannabe DH , actually XC bike... If a guy could only long shock or change the link on that thing you'd have something. Reminds me of Santa Cruz, you have to take your $4000 frame and mod the hell out of it with aftermarket parts for it to not ride like a Diamond Back anymore. ... Why not just buy a descent bike out of the box?

154mm in the rear and 170mm up front. Stock is 140 and 150 for the EVO.

Says 140 mm on their site for the 29" / 150 mm for the 27.5 model. Which one you get, the good one the 27.5?

140 mm is XC territory bud... Need 150 mils or your not even allowed in the shuttle truck.

Lies.
My 160/145mm Ripmo (30 second mark) was in the shuttle truck a few times this year. This was a good day until Tolko Matt broke his collarbone.

If any of you guys are touring around Kelowna keep your eyes peeled for a crack head riding a 2006 Specialized Hardrock Sport. Pretty much all black with white and silver decaling, silver RST fork, FSA cranks with silver/black 50/50 pedals, 1-10 XT drive train, Easton bars with a Husfeller stem and pull brakes. Just built it up for my niece to ride to work (she just moved to Kelowna a month ago) had the bike less than a week and it got jacked...thanks

Ok, your bikes cool .... Your in the 6"+ club.

Shred GTFOH with that XC bike. Lol you should be ashamed of yourself. Making up for miniscule travel because it's a 29" wheels.... Yah that's the XC size of wheels.

Buy a man's bike and then come back to the forum.

So winter is here and Biking is over so it is time to put in some time on the bucket list. This year i got 3.. Learn to knit, Cross country skiing and yoga....

As far as that video goes there is a lot missing. we all know they spent alot fo time walking again. The paint on that slayer is in too good of shape to have put any effort into the art.

i put into google what chick dig and it came up blank so i appreciate the effort girls but i cant control these guys. XB even sent me a message saying that there is no way that you are real and that Crawford was f*cking with us... #Vernon recluse thread

Anyone have any luck with the mail order bride thing?
