    To those who have a Giant Glory, what is the bb height? It isn't listed anywhere on Giant's website.

    My 07 glory with a boxxer was give or take 14.5". It was a bit higher they I would have liked, but still a really nice ride.

    Just got my new 08 with a fox 40 at full height, and I measured it at 13.75 inches. Fing sweet.

    The lowest you can get a 07 Glory's BB down to with a Fox 40 is 14.25".

    I tend to ride with inflated tires (whenever possible).

    Is the proper way to measure to the bottom of the shell or to the center of the spindle??

    Probably affected by the Headangle compared to a glory dh?
    Also depends what travel fork you're running...

    13.75 center of spindle Glory DH. no joke, just like 8.5 inches. yeee. I just wish we could get a clear weekend out here so I can go scrape some pedals. I was really surprised when I measured it that low. It's frickin sweet. I'll be down at Bootyleg for the race in two weeks, breaking toes. stoked.

    Glory (FR) is a different frame.
