DB's new bike looks like a nice package for the dollars. Keep in mind that you're looking at a base level shock, Deore brakes, and Kenda tires, though. All of which were options during the community voting round of this project and would have dropped the price significantly.

Added a comment about feature Win SRAM GUIDE RSC Brakes - Vital OTB Windham, NY World Cup 8/19/2014 2:46 PM

Congrats to Hristo_Tanev, the winner of the Windham World Cup OTB contest and the SRAM GUIDE RSC brakes!

Of 283 entries, just 6 of you correctly guessed that both Bryceland and Ragot would win. Hristo_Tanev’s predictions were off by a combined time of just 0.802 seconds. Nice work!

We'll have several more OTB contests throughout the season, so check back often.

Affordable is a relative term. We think all the pieces that make up the bike still represent a good value.

Way to keep things in perspective, Nicholast! As you mention, this was the result of a community poll/build, and the results are definitely interesting.

Cheers, Adam. So far we've been pleasantly surprised by deity's Compound pedals. They're holding up to the abuse quite quite well. Grip wise, did you know that many World Cup riders prefer traditional slide-on grips? With proper install and a little bit of safety wire, they're a viable option for those looking to save a few bucks.

Good buy. As Adam notes below, these are retail prices. We listed them because discounts vary widely world wide. You could likely build this bike for much less than the retail value.

Yup! All of those components were offered as choices during the voting round. For those interested in more budget options, check out the voting post.

Giant does not plan to offer the 01 Glory in the USA in 2015, but may offer it in other countries.

I believe the pins are designed to shear off just above the pedal body, so it should be okay.

Inspecting them up close they sure didn't look it. The alternating black/silver is a result of the heavily lubed narrow links getting the ring dirty.

Jinya's an animal! Very few riders worldwide that could tackle what he does on a hardtail.
