At this point things that _feel_ slow are way more difficult to manage psychologically than just the weight of the bike. I was running an oval chainring on my G1 and it made the bike feel like I was trying to ride a hobby horse uphill through chocolate mousse. Swapped to a similar-sized round chainring and everything was right with the world with zero weight change. Same with bad body position, running the wrong tire PSI. Or, TBH, Cushcore Pro. On my hardtail it was a revelation but on my G1 it just felt heavy and sluggish. I swapped to Tannus Tubeless, saved 100g on each wheel and gained a lot more peppy feel out of them and that made a huge qualitative difference.
