Hey snoforner, I thought you had a Glory? Or you just haven't gotten it yet? Either way, cool looking trail. I'd love to ride that.....

to the person who said " you could have gone either way" i agree with them to some extent... the konas my xc bike-short and to the point work out

but then i ride this trail and similiars with both.. just cant decide which one to let go because the glory is VERY hard to pedal on anything not pointed down.. any ways i got both for under 3 grand soo..

If it were me I would go for the bigger bike. You can always pedal harder or push, but the Glory (when properly setup) will always handle better and feel better on the descents.

I know its hard to pedal, but IMO its totally worth it, especially if you ride much gnarly DH, or race. I rode my DHR on tons of XC trails (the most notable being the McKenzie River Trail), but as long as you put your seat up a bit and spin in the flats, stand in the tougher sections, and walk in the toughest sections, it is manageable. IMO the reward on the DH greatly makes up for the sucky uphill.

Plus, the Glory is dope.

Yeah, I'll definitely hit you up... I just got my license but I've still gotta get my new bike together...

Hit me up if you come down here.
