Giant Glory 2 alu SRAM GX, Fox, Magura

$2000 USD
Ridden 5 times total. Scuff on the downtube protector. One paint chip on the seattube from a rock. 200mm travel front and rear, Med frame, 27.5 wheels. I'm a service manager at a bike shop, so this bike has been meticulously cared for and will have the brakes bled, drivetrain cleaned, wheels trued, bolts torqued to spec before the time of sale. Want to get a '19 Reign instead of this, I don't get to spend time in the bike park anymore. https://www.giant-bicycles.com/us/glory-2 Non stock parts are: SRAM GX DH 7 speed - small block cassette, shifter Magura MT5 4-piston brakes Raceface atlas 35mm Kash money bar, atlas direct mount stem E13 LG1 tires, sticky compound front, dual compound rear, set up tubeless Price is firm, don't make offers. You pay shipping, bike will be boxed up and shipped via bikeflights in this case. Substantial upgrades over stock components where I felt it was needed. Bike is in fantastic condition and has barely been ridden. If not for the scuff and paint chip, it could pass for new. Bike does not come with pedals, but I'm willing to work something out - I have plenty of stock of HT and raceface pedals that I'd offer a killer deal on if needed. Weight is in the picture attached, PM me with any questions.

First Look: Trek's New 2019 Remedy
@harveydw09: OEM hubs on cheaper models that have decent (pawl) internals if slow engagement. DT Swiss internals (star) on the higher end stuff. Admittedly the freehub bodies are a bit soft on their road lineup but that’s a different story. Tubeless setup is easy, just dump and go. Plus they use the lightest tubeless tape around which is worth getting your hands on aftermarket. Giant knows what they’re doing when they spec and produce a bike. Their wheels have held up better than DT Swiss XM splines/Easton carbon/i9 for XC racing under the same rider, and better than easton and stand for CX under the same rider. I run giant wheels on my BMC road bike since they’re so damn cheap

@griffsterb: What giant model are you looking at? New reigns have aluminum rims with DVO in the SX model or carbon in the advanced models. Trance is all carbon starting at around 4k. Giant has some of the cheapest bike builds with carbon rims around and they deal with crash replacement issues very well. You’re also talking about the biggest bike manufacturer in the world that controls the means of production for a ton of other brands, so I wouldn’t “ugh” at OEM level cockpits. Every Commencal I’ve seen has had issues. Last one had brake lines too short from the factory and they ripped out in a crash and the guy was without the bike for a month dealing with them. I’m not saying they’re all like this, but bikes you get from a shop is buying peace of mind through (usually free) service and an extra level of quality control before the bike hits you. Tons of serious riders lack the ability to reliably work on their bikes and will happily admit that. Whether they want to pay more money up front or save $$ to begin with and pay more for service down the road is up to them.

Review: NS Snabb 150 Plus 1
On the fork? Grip damper has a dial without detents from open to closed. 20% is an accurate way to describe where the compression is set

It’s also the spacer for the 7spd block. Stock gx dh cassettes come with them as well, albeit in plastic. It’s just more chain insurance
