glory has the 1.5 steerer so it corners more precisely.

If you like your bike to go in the direction you point the handlebars then go with the glory.

This was an amazing post to read. LOL Trolls everywhere.
I think that we need to seriously look at our education system in Canada. Because most of the posts by teenage boys in canada, have very poor grammar and spelling.

hey mikeyboy who says the konas more flickable im pretty shure it weighs more
get the glory it has a better linkage
notice that the konas havent really changed in the last 10 years other than using differant variations of the same linkage design and added more travel


ps the giant petals better
The Kona is lighter than the Giant buy around 3 lbs. the giant does PEDAL better but with all the extra wieght im not sure if its worth it.

Actually the 4 bar thing is a type of linkage, kinda like commencal, just way more bulky, it changes the leverage ratio of the shock.
