I got the G16. I got an 83mm axle from RF to convert my cranks so all good there. I'm running a CCDBACS. I'm not ready to deal with a coil just yet.

MOJO recommended I go FLOAT X2 instead of X2... I'm running a Longer @175mm rear. Have a 170mm cartridge I need to drop into the 44mm 36 GRIP2 soon. Also this spring I'll likely order a set of Hope cranks. Tired of dealing with the Canfield Bros SRAM interface.

The bike is a beast. I often wonder if I should've went 155mm rear. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Are you adding offset bushings to compensate for the 29ers? 

I guess coming from a Pole the geo won't seem like such an huge change.  For myself it is/was an eye opener.  Like my Chromag feels comically short/small now, I'm not opening that Naked can of worms; yet.  No idea how the V10C feels; but I bet similar.

My G16 BB is at 355 with 29 wheels. Definitely need some offset bushings IMO. Fortunately with a broken thumb, I've got time to get them. 

Seems like 2019 is going to be the summer of Geometron on the shore.

i love the industrial aesthetic. through the real crime is the lack of waterbottle space. wish they'd change up the linkage configuration to free up some room.

All that spacer between the wheels and they can't even fit a waterbottle.

In fact this new frame has LESS ability to fit a waterbottle because they have upsized the shock to metric 230/70 from 222/67 or 216/63.
