I'm looking at buying one, I know people with the old style Glory who love them and most of the reviews suggest the new one is better with minor changes (stem/bars/grips and tyres) - it would be great to hear the opinion of somebody who owns a 2010!

My main problem is sizing though, I currently ride a small Orange 222 and often find myself too far forward (especially with a direct mount stem) so I think I want the medium Glory, any advice would be appreciated - the top tube lengths (mm) are below:

15" Orange - 547 (579 effective length - not sure how this is calculated though??)
16" Glory - 565
17" Glory - 605
17.5" Glory - 645

Ideally I would like to test ride one in the next month or two so if anybody hears of any Giant test days this would be most useful.

    If your anywhere near these guys ( the owner has a 2010 Glory which he races.

    If you can pop in i'm sure he would let you have a try failing that give them a bell he could have a chat with ya.

    Hope it helps

    There are Giant Stores in Bristol, Cambridge and Liverpool who should be able to get you a demo bike. Give the closest one a bell to find out.
