 I don't own one, but I have ridden one. I own a 2007 Glory 1, and I've just spent a lot of money bringing it up to speed, and let me tell you, the rides are nearly the same! Smooth, very fun bike to ride. Great value for money, would be a fantastic first big bike!

 Absolutely one of the fastest DH bikes i've ever ridden! I have yet to find any cons with this. If you have the money get THIS the Fox version is ok but does not look nearly as nice! If you want Fox so bad get a Fox fork after market in white!

 This bike rocks! Great spec, great looks, great geometry and all at a good price. I love the Maestro suspension because it performs as advertised and Giant's frames are practically works of art. 39 pounds out of the box too with REAL DH tubes and tires!

 Pros: Great solid bike!! The travel is well used and the stock components give you most of the adjust ability you need to get out and race it. The drive train is great and haven't had any problems with it at all after about 4 months of riding. the bike is right at home at bike parks! And also good with tech stuff, like rocks and roots. Bike is also very light! Ways 39 pounds stock with strait line pedals.

Cons: this is a budget racer bike so you might upgrade a few components such as wider bars(little personal preferences) My main con is the shock is alright but its hard to set up because it doesn't have a compression nob. Basically they took a Rock Shox vivid R2c and took out the compression. The brakes are good but have a sort of bottomless feel that goes to the bars. (you want more of a firm end stroke) The wheels are good on being light but need to be trued often.

Over all this bike is incredible and will fit perfectly with the weekend racer as well as the park rat!

 boss bike, great suspension, smooth ride, but jumps heavy on the front wheel. Very aggressive ride, with low front bars. Difficult to beat for downhilling, but don't buy it if you plan on riding it up hills

Giant 2011 Glory 1 (MSRP $4350) — The harder the course, the better says two-time U.S. DH Champ Duncan Riffle. Same goes for his bike, the Giant Glory. With 8 inches of fully active Maestro suspension, mated to a lightweight, super strong ALUXX SL via a co-pivot shock mount, it’s everything Duncan-and you-need to boost your confidence in the most extreme DH conditions.
