do you want to "RIDE DOWNHILLL!!!!!" and be a proper DHer?
or do you want to play?
a Glory would be fantasmic, but uttery useless for anything that isnt a DH track, and it has a MILLION bearings to look after.
if you want to dick about, ride the local tracks etc, i would suggest going for a simpler, slighty shorter travel, more "FR" bike.
a granny ring may have no place on a "DH!!!!" bike
but it would let you winch back up the climb.
i ride Gawton and the Qs Dh tracks on an Orange 66 in slack mode, and love it.
batter down capability, but not a proper DH bike, as im not a proper DHer!
