No, it was not measured with sag - it is measured using 'static geometry'.
63.8 to 64 degrees depending on which time I measured it.
It's also not built with 'sticky bushed 40's' but with instead well bedded in Boxxer.http://www.southerndownhill.com/forum/index.php/topic,221815.0.html
In fact, whilst I'm replying (something I dont do very often anymore) I might as well clear up some crap about this bike.
Sunday has a head angle of 65 degrees and a wheel base of (for M frame) 45.25 inches. The new 2010 Glory in M has a wheel base (listed from Giants geo figures) of 45.5 inches. A whole .25 of an inch LONGER than a Sunday. Okay, if you think the sunday is short, then so is the Giant. But comparatively speaking there is nothing short, out of the ordinary or shitty about the Glory. As mentioned above, the HA of the Sunday is 65 (list) and Glory 65.5 (list). Take both measurements with a pinch of salt.
If people have ridden this bike then I full accept their opinions. By ridden I mean on a proper track - somewhere in France, maybe a steep track in Wales, Fort William - anywhere other than Rogate, Aston and god knows where else flat.
I live in France - Morzine to be exact. I've been riding this bike on tracks I've ridden on the same bike for the last three years at the same speed, if not faster than before. There is nothing quirky about the Glory. My previous bike had a static HA of 65 degrees and people never once said it looked steep.
Some of my mates have the new Demo 8. They aren't suddenly quicker than me because the listed HA of their bikes is 1 degree slacker than mine.
I appreciate people like to chat and gossip and stuff but there is no point stating opinion as FACT. I hope everything I've written is fact, and if something isn't I will quite happily back-track and eat my words.
I am however interested to try the reducer cups, and let's be honest, they will probably help the frame to be a more Champery eating than anything else. There is nothing wrong with it as it is - Geo is fine, ride is brilliant and value is extraordinary.
Before I forget - I am not sticking up for my purchase. If I was doing that my argument would be something along the lines of:
Shutup wateva u dun no anytin abut beiks n dat lol cuz i iz de kwikest in de ulps.
