Seems like there are some ratios at play in the balance equation too. For instance your G1 reach : CS is fairly similar to a 485 reach : 430 CS, which is a not atypical recent mainstream XL (27.5) size.
I’m 6’2” and fixate on cornering so the longer chainstay thing is the most intriguing geometry variable for me right now. currently on 2016 bikes with the numbers above so have a hard time even conceiving of what longer CS would ride like. To me it feels like my bikes corner awesome but maybe it gets way better? really wish it was an easier variable to experiment with.
