 PROPS CEDRIC, I HUCK IN YOUR GLORY.

 Probably just me.. but is the Giant Glory starting to look a bit dated?
  • 3 3
 Due to the frame hasn't had any major changes in ages
  • 21 3
 If it isn't broke don't try and fix it. The glory is an awesome bike. I would rather see them stay with a design that works and tweak the geometry instead of putting out a totally new design that might take away from its performance.
  • 6 0
 It's the paint scheme, I always thought it was revolting. Always loved the gunmetal grey paint
  • 1 0
 The geometry got completely redone for 2012, but yea, still looks the same as forever ago
  • 3 0
 @robc10 -- the frame actually has had major changes for 2013, head angle majorly slackened from 65.5 to 63.5, bb lowered and wheelbase lengthened. The frame design itself might look old, but I can tell you it rides like a dream as I am a proud owner.

 Betting a carbon one will be out in the next two years!

 As a glory owner i can also say that the it is an amazing bike, i love my glory and the only thing that could really replace it is another glory
  • 1 0
 @imbngtracer7975 that's not a major frame change. That's just geometry
  • 1 0
 With giant being some of the world leaders in carbon technology im suppired its not already carbon?
  • 1 0
 The same thought occurred to me. It's that rear triangle. The angle between CS and SS is markedly larger than any of the other frame designs featured here and the rocker has shorter arms...not necessarily a bad thing, it's just not a la mode.

 Yeeaahh Mikey!!! Evil and DVO, such a sick setup this year!!!
  • 21 1
 My wallet hurts from wanting all new gear. My brain hurts from all the coolness. My eyes hurts from all the over saturated photos.
  • 19 3
 Ahhhhh, finally......dual crows, fat tires, and lots of travel....THESE are the bikes we've been waiting to see. I don't know about everyone else, but I was getting kind of tired of all the '29er chatter. Back to the big bikes for the big trails...
  • 3 2
 You know what? Now that I think about it, I guess there was a bit too much 29er talk in the recent past. Good to get back to the awesomeness of downhill!
  • 8 2
 Yeah, how dare pinkbike talk about anything other than 26" DH bikes. The sheer nerve!
  • 18 0
 if you look at the shock in the demo closer, you can clearly see the overtaped öhlins "Ö" logo on the right barrel.
  • 6 0
 uhoh, shock drama is coming...
  • 1 0
 well spotted that man
  • 6 4
 ok, someone is running an ohlins shock. but we don't care about it unless we know who's running it! if it's some random joe then no one cares. if it's aaron gwin we deserve to prepare ourselves for another contract violation.
  • 3 0
 And you can see "TTX" under the other sticker. Interesting...
  • 2 0
 That was Mitch Ropelato's bike just to clarify for anyone. And it's interesting hearing the athletes talk about it. As Mitch himself put it. "We are on a need to know basis with what is going on with the shock and by need to know, we don't know anything".
  • 1 0
 Nathan Rennie ran an Ohlins shock when he rode for Avanti many, many years ago. I think you'd have to go back in time to Jurassic Bike Park to see it.

 I'll take that over another circus clown inspired moto outfit. Graves figured it out.

 Who cares how he combs his hair, or what sneakers/clothes he wears, music, lifestyle, etc.. I don't see you up there and his bike is pretty tasty
  • 8 0
 Even if the Öhlins rearshock is yber cool, I can't imagine how cool a Öhlins front fork would look like!
  • 3 0
 yes sir,id kill for an iverted ohlins mtn bike fork.
  • 1 0
 or a Kayaba

 Yeah 2nd that just awesome bikes, do like the Evil, Devinci, Santa Cruz V10s, Ratboys and Cedrics DVO! But all these bikes are wikid!

 Ohlins bike suspension would be awesome!!!!
  • 3 5
 You can already buy the ohlins ccdb mate
  • 4 0
 Touche, however Cane Creek made the DB, with the HELP of Ohlins.... This could be a Ohlins shock, without the CCDB, Cane Creek name tag.
  • 1 1
 Yeah but without ohlins there wouldn't be a ccdb. Cane creek had licencing rights for something like 2 years before ohlins released their version. The ccdb is aohlins shock funded by cane creek. However I agree with you about the new ohlins bit.
  • 4 0
 Ohlins forks on the horizon then?
  • 3 0
 I don't know. As I'm sure your probably aware they do fork internals for all sorts of motor bikes so it wouldn't be too hard for them to make either killer internals or even a full fork.
  • 2 0
 They are also the masters of USD forks can't wait to see what they have to bring to the world of DH.
  • 1 1
 Don't Creek already make some of Ohlins moto shocks as well as the CCDB?
This could be an expansion of that, Ohlins branded mtb parts, manufactured by Cane Creek.
  • 2 0
 yea,i want to see what Ohlins has byitself..nothing against C.C.,they both have build shops in the same area of the blue ridge mtns in north carolina so thats probably why they came togeather on the DB ..cane creek guys probobly knew that the guys at Ohlins whould have every tool to test& make a great shock better..I want to se what Ohlins does on its own desighn... Drool

 If Ohlins got came in, then how awesome would it be if a companies like Showa and KYB got into the game? Suspension revolution.
  • 3 0
 Would switch to an Oehlins anytime. Compared to their engineering much of Fox and RS look like shophacks.
  • 4 1
 [Deeeight] Showa had an MTB fork back in 1991 [/Deeeight]
  • 2 0
 Ohlins would make the best shocks in the game if they got into the mtn bike market,best suspinsion ever!i know this for a fact bcecause i lived right behind one of their build shops in NC very nice stuff comming from them if they get into mtn biking Salute QUALITY Salute so much bike porn,i want to ride an emerald DVO....hmm..
