FIRST LOOK: Giant 2010 Faith FR bike

Keystone, CO was the staging ground for Giant's 2010 long-travel bike launch. The first article was on the Glory DH bike. This time, it's the all-new Faith 7" freeride bike. Is it worthy of the Faith name? Find out for yourself.

I would purchase one of those based on the looks and the feel of the Glory I demo'd. I'd prefer something less racy than the Glory, and I think the Faith would be the ticket.

I loved my old faith! I rode it for 3 years. Probably my favourite bike I have ever ridden.

But this new one on the other hand. Looks incredible!!!!

I want one so bad, haha

I only noticed it when you pointed it out. That seat does not look comfortable.
