We were very excited to see Open release a revision to the ground breaking Open Up gravel bike. The UP has been a fantastic bike for us so many excellent builds and so many happy miles for it's owners.
The New UPPPER is a lightweight version of the UP with notable upgrades like flat mount brake mounts and a re lightweight through axle for the fork. Overall it's all the goodness of the Up in lighter frame that can rival most lightweight road bikes for performance.
The UPPER takes the rider one step closer to a single bike to rule them all. The upper can be built with a set of road wheels and come in as light as any decent road bike. We love this idea.
Retail for the frame set $4499 contact us for a full build.
As of March 2017 availability is scare, Medium is sold out and only expected 3rd week in April. Other sizes are available.
As of 3/8/2017 we are yet to have any replacement clamps from Look but have been told it's imminent. Look Cycles has announced a recall on some metal clamps for the aero stem due to reports of corrosion in extreme environmental conditions. This is a voluntary recall, If your clamp shows any signs of corrosion stop using it right [...]
The Pinarello F8 has dominated professional cycling for the last three years since it's introduction in 2014. The F10 continues the legacy and we expect will live up to it's hashtag #F8naturalbornwinnerHow exactly will it do this, read the full white paper here
If you own an F8 and have tried using 25mm or larger tires then you might have run into an issue with the tire rubbing on the underside of the rear brake caliper. Your frame is not defective it's simply a design oversight on Pinarello's part. The F8 was released in 2015 but designed [...]
We often get fit questions from customers. One of the most common queries is crank length. Looking at pros’ crank lengths we’re tempted to emulate our heroes. I remember using 180mm cranks because I saw five time Tour de France winner Miguel Indurain destroy the competition using that same length. Recent Tour winner Chris Froome [...]
Look Bicycles just celebrated their 30th anniversary. According to Hallmark that means pearls or, for a more modern gift, it’s diamonds. However, Look has something better than either of those: the 795 Aerolight Anniversary Limited Edition.Sporting the classic Mondrian colors that Look made iconic, the 795 Aerolight is the personification of aerodynamics and modern bicycle technology.

Cycling is one of the few sports that you can go out and buy what the professionals are toeing the line with. In fact, that’s a UCI rule - the bike or components must be available commercially. And that’s the reason why Pinarello released the Dogma XLight F8 model, so Chris Froome could have every [...]
We love a good party. Apparently Pinarello does as well. To celebrate 20 years of producing the best bikes in the business, Pinarello created the Dogma F8 La Ventesima. These complete bikes were ridden once by dealers and guests at the Pinarello Gran Fondo and are kitted out with the SRAM eTap.These bikes are lightly [...]
First time I heard about the Sallanches 64 the 900g frame weight stuck with me - most Merckx frames are not near this light. The price hit me as well. With Ultegra 6800 it was a $3000 bike, which is super impressive. I was interested to see one up close and ride. When I got [...]
Here at Glory Cycles we love to ride bikes. Our staff includes racers, triathletes, to daily commuters. So when it was brought to our attention that Rapha was promoting a Prestige Ride in Appalachia we were intrigued.The Rapha Prestige events aren’t races - they’re “unsupported, unsanctioned, and un-marshalled” rides. This August 13th, the British cycling clothing company’s next [...]
