Andrew Neethling's Prototype Giant Glory

Andrew Neethling walks you through his Giant Glory DH prototype bike, while at the Triple DHip race. Though he doesn't go into specifics (he wasn't allowed to), he does give you the gist of the new layout and shreds in the process.

    The 1999 Giant ATX team won more races than this Invention!
    3rd place at Forth William means nothing,Any company gets lucky with one of those, even Rocky mountain, they got it last year .

    enrico, the giant is amazing. some people complain about the current Glory's head angle but its honestly not bad. the website says 65.5 but its more like 64 and a quarter. at least mine is. it shredsa and im sure these changes will only make it faster! maybe I'll have to swap it out for the new frame soon but damn 36 pounds!? thats light!

    I'm just being a whiney little bitch and half
    Joking.. I thought it was high quality aggressive reporting from spomer, and the bike has some seriously nice curves going on.

    @vish, it's my iphone and it was probably just needles breathing too hard at altitude : )

    Haha, I knew thevish would chime in about the wind noise!

    Sick ride, Needles. I like how some of your decals match the boxxer stanchions.

    That head angle looks a lot better now for sure. Giant is killing it these days (love my ReignX). Hope to see Hart on the top step sometime this summer on one of those.

    These changes might make me buy another DH bike..
    while you are at it Giant - how about a regular BB or ISCG tabs on the Reign :o)

    are you serious enrico? chances are very likely that the changes were made to improve the bike. why else would needles, hart, and driff ask for them??? and last I checked hart got 3rd at fort william on this bike...

    you have a nice hate record going

    Just when you think things can't get any worse, Giant takes a terrible bike and makes it even crapier!
    This contraption will never win world cups!
