Bonus points for using The Call of Ktulu as background music. \m/

Well, technically. But, you're not really losing if you race some DS and then start drinking beer, even if you only get to race one round.

Yep, I loved the dual slalom, and battling it out for who ended up advancing to the "first round of beer drinking"

I made it every other year for the Dual Slalom. The race was one of the better DS you could have done. The hammer actuated homemade start gate was a nice touch. Once year, we had the UCI start cadence playing off of Jeff's phone.

Nice self shot video! I used to ride this trail all the time when i was at University in Denver, such a cool trail for being right outside the city.

It would be cool if they allow riders to huck right to shortcut the corkscrew as an optional line.

Yeah, I'm Matt from GG. You're on the right track as far as axle path. Although, keep in mind that axle path is one of the factors in suspension design, and there are other factors that are at least as important. For example, the spring rate curve at the rear wheel (ie leverage rate curve combined with spring curve).

Single pivots work really well, easy to tune, easy maintenance. Engineeringwise a fully triangulated rear is way stiffer than the multilinks. All things equal - single pivot works and multipivot have torsional issues...more

Daniel, Thanks for the passion and taking the time to ask a bunch of questions. First and foremost, since you're local, you should come down to GG and check them out in person, and we can arrange a test ride so you can get a real idea of how they actually ride out on the trails. People that check out the bikes in person and ride them usually like the aesthetics, layout, and definitely the ride.
As far as suspension, I have previous experience in motorsports doing suspension design and tuning. The most important thing I learned in motorsports that transfers directly over to mountain bikes is how important it is for the suspension to make riders feel comfortable straight away with predictable performance. As mentioned in the slideshow, we were able to achieve the results we were looking for on the GG/DH with a single pivot non-linkage system, so that's what we went with. On the Megatrail, the application is a little different, such as pedaling efficiency being more important, the need for a longer, straight seat tube, and of course being optimized for air springs vs coil. Like the GG/DH, the pivot point was placed where it is to balance all of those factors into a package for efficient pedaling, liveliness, square edge performance, and without producing excessive chain growth or brake interaction. For the Megatrail, we ended up needing the linkage to get what we wanted.

We also have a local rider that's been on a GG/DH for the past year that previously rode a Giant Glory. I can put you in touch with him for comparisons. I'll ping him and see if he wants to post on here.

Once I have the money I am going to be the owner of a GG bike, factual statement.
