The Austrians take over vitalmtb ;-) (at least when it comes down to pictures). Yours and mine are two daily shots I know about taken in Austria.

congrats! ...and nice a really nice view

if you hit it right (speed, angle, body position) it is an easy one. I think it was Steve Peat (who has got more experience then him at a worldcup in Leogang 2 years ago that went into the fence at the bottom. It is a nasty one to time but in general easy when done correct (I went down on the second stair - to much breaking does not always help :-) )

Easy corner?

I hope the author tried it. I am just an average rider and I don't find that corner easy (not even touching race speed ;-) ). That three steps before are not so flat as they look in the livestream

...and rethink what they are doing in Austria/Germany at the moment. But manuels would be an integral part - comparing a service on a rock shox and fox fork -> fox is a nightmare :-) imho

in Europe the availability of seals, parts and all the needs stuff is also a nightmare :-(

First of all - I think it is very cool that you take the time and answer our questions.

mine is about the shock service - are there any changes in service intervals and can a normal dealer service the shock? It sounds nearly to good to be true and normally there is a slight downside. I already own fox parts and I am not very satisfied when it comes to service - maybe that's connected to the poor support in Austria and Germany in the past ;-)

Added a product review for 2013 Giant Glory 0 9/14/2013 3:06 AM
C138_2013_glory_0

...entering pursuit mode

Rating:

The Good: good geometry (at 176cm body height) good bottom bracket height and chainstay length

The Bad: cabelrouting is a bit funny and cables slaped (noise) against the downtube (is gone since I mounted a rockguard downtube protector)

Overall:

I got the fram only version - so I can not really tell how good the components are.

The frame itself is the best I got so far. It took me about 2 rides on the freeride in Leogang to get used to it.
After that it was like - wow, that line was not possible before - wow, I went never that fast into that corner before.

I do not think that I ride better (until now ;-) ) but the frame and therefore the bike are easy to understand and do
what I want without a lot of effort for the rider. On the second day I rode it down the DH in Leogang and it was the same
again. It was easier for me to controle the bike and get my lines. Jumping is a piece of cake. The handling of the bike
is really, really nice and helps me to get near "seeable" whips :-)

All in all I really, really like the glory frame and I think it will suit a lot of people. Give it a try :-)

...I love mine

Added a product review for Shimano M640 Zee Hydraulic Disc Brakes 5/16/2013 1:53 PM
C138_shimano_zee_brakes

Affordable and really, really good

Rating:

The Good: After using Avid´s for serveral years and switched to shimano zee and was a fan right after the first ride. Predictable, lot´s of power, good levers, easy to find the right dose of braking, good pricing on rotors and pads' ...bleeding is a piece of cake :-) Updated: so far - no fading

The Bad: the mount for the handlebar is very "solid", but it works well and holds everyhting in place

Overall:

get one, put in on your bike and never worry about braking again

considering the price and what you get, I would definitly say it´s worth five stars

Update:
I gave the brakes a solid 4h hours in Leogang and went down the freeride, downhill and bingo bongo trail´s. The brakes worked very well. Braking-power is predictable and it is easy to find the right dose. In "scary" moments the brakes really help to get out of the situations without a crash.
After some runs on the downhill there was no fading and on some parts the brakes had to do a lot of work as it was my first day on the donwhill in 2013.

I haven´t changed my mind and would recommend the brakes.
