[Bike Check] Marcelo Gutierrez Giant Glory Advanced



Last week we spent an afternoon with the Giant Factory Off Road team just North of Los Angeles at Giant’s US headquarters. We tagged along for a nice trail ride that left from the office and went into the mountains, then landed down by the beach a few minutes from Malibu. Afterwards we grabbed Marcelo’s newest DH bike and snapped some pics of it with the new colorway for 2017…


Up front, Marcelo prefers a coil spring so he runs the RockShox Boxxer Team with a firm spring.
Out back he runs his Vivid R2C with a 350# SAR spring.
Full SRAM X01 DH 7 speed drivetrain…
…with some very interesting mods to the shifter’s thumb paddle.
Marcelo runs his Avid Code levers nearly level.
Hungry like the wolf…
HT’s X-2 pedals. Matchy matchy.
Truvativ Descendant cockpit.
Lock on ODI longneck grips.
Code calipers with 200mm Centerline rotors.
And the timer. Marcelo is one of a small handful of riders who is due for and deserving of a World Cup win.
Best of luck in 2017 Marcelo!
