- gustavs
-721 rims
-holzfeller cranks
-some other up's

04 kona stinky dee
-66rc
-dt hugi FR/ex729 wheels
-yada yada

the stink is heavy as hell for wht it is (45lbs) but its the best pedaling bike that i have and ive been doing 50min xc rides on it every night

glorys amazing, tell me your opinions on the 40 durability, glory weighs in at 42 with regular tubes and 2.5/2.2 michelins

If you dont want to hurt something that nice, then you shouldn't have bought it. If you are afraid to ride it, you could always send it my way. You have some sweet bikes, so go ride it like it is supposed to be ridden.

To be honest I don't understand having a Glory to go small and a crappier Kona to go big, but they both look nice. I just think you could have gone for one or the other.
well i got both of them for cheaper than most could get te glory for..

Its a fox. Huck that shitt yo. glorys are friggan amazing bikes and you should really get to know it better. Once you do, you will hate the kona.why dont you sell the dh parts on the kona and put All mountain parts on it and then keep the glory for freeride and downhill. I have a faith which has the same swingarm and suspension design, and if you dont think it will handle anything big than I suggest selling it, otherwise pin it.

Its a great fork, but the lowers can get scrathed very easily. It seems to happen to all the fox forks that I have owned. It has never affected performance, though. But I guess they gotta save some weight somewhere.
