This review is bang on.  I just finished 2 seasons on an XXL Capra, and never quite got on with the bike. for its 170mm size it feels great cruising or in mellow terrain but when you open it up I too always felt like i was being pitched forward, and that the bike would rebound uncontrollably when deep in the travel in hard compressions, servicing my shock, putting a different compression/rebound tune on, and eventually replacing with a coil shock never fixed this.  Bike felt great in the corners with such short chainstays, but never felt balanced, and also felt like you were climbing in a perpetual catwalk.  Now on a Megatower with a comparatively terrible spec for the price I wouldn't go back. Awesome bike on paper, less so in real life.
