Going to be keen to see how it compares to your G1, AJ. Geo sheet looks amazingly similar between the XXL Spire and Extra Longest G1. Reach, chainstay length, HTA, stack all nearly identical. Certainly way more adjustability with the G1, which is rad. 

As a 6'6" rider, these are my two top choices to replace my XL Ripmo AF, but the local shop I like to support has the Spire on order so hmm...
