What length cranks, and chainring on the Spire? I have a Spire as well, went from a V1 Sentinel.  Spire really had me gassed on climbs that were no fuss at all on the Sentinel, I chalked it up to the smaller chainring, and shorter cranks (I was spinning faster for the same speed, seems I ride to a certain trail speed rather than a certain cadence) I did find I liked being onut on longer rides on the Spire, and have done bigger days in the saddle.  I went back and fourth between the Spire and Range before I settled on the Spire, the Range felt like more of a dog on the climbs to me....ymmv
