My 210 started rattling after some time in the bikepark. The reason was, when I attached the shock pump to check the pressure, the schrader valve came loose and after a while it started rattling. Would be great if the schrader valve had a nut to secure it.
No other issues so far, but I dont ride in the mud if possible. Have it for 6 months now, V2 actuator (when I unpacked it the post slipped out of the box and landed on that flimsy V2 actuator...eeek...it did not break but bent, but it works anyway).
Oh yeah the XXL is quite small, being 200cm tall :).
I own my aluminum 29 Capra (15,5kgs, 170mm) for a year now and had no troubles so far. I smashed the downtube some times on rocks, the rubber protector did its job - but with a carbon frame, I dont know.
Some folks crashed their carbon chainstays when the derailleur hanger did not break but turned.
Riding experience is roughly the same as AJ describes. I love it very much!
Mine has Rockshox though, the Superdeluxe is a bit harsh. Same troubles on square edges and landings. Maybe a coil is the best option.
Same discussion on mtb-news.de - @grinsekater is doing field tests with different riders on different bikes to find out more about bike geometry.
Thing is, there are so many different bikes with so many different numbers, and every rider is different too. And a rider can change his body over a short time and adapt to a bike that did not work under him before.
There is no "ideal" body or "ideal" bike for mountain biking, not even for enduro. Maybe for roadies.
Sure, a longer bike will work better on the downs, and if the chainstays are a bit longer on a long bike, you will feel more centered.
But i feel great on my hardtail 29er with a 64 head angle, 475 reach and 75 seat angle, and ultra short chainstays because of the 650B+ wheel in the back. So much fun. The 29 Capra XXL is fun too, but different. But over here there are not any trails that resemble the PNW.
I am 200cm tall and had some thoughts about the Geometron, but then bought a (way cheaper) 29 Capra XXL. It barely fits into bikepark gondolas, and feels long on tight tracks - but on fast and rough tracks it could be 5cm longer.
I really would like to test ride the G1 in xxlongest.
On my oneup 210 some nuts and bolts came loose after extended bikepark stutterbumps. No big deal, but not fixable on the trail.
I did run Procore with a normal tube after drilling a hole in the rim. What I did not like with Procore was the inner tube loosing air and you had to check it regularly with a pressure gauge to find that out. After all it did not prevent snakebites like I hoped it would, or you have to pump it up to 6-8bar.
When I ran Procore in a 3.0 on a 45mm rim, it did not work because the inner blue tire was not big enough.
With up to 8bar possible Procore puts a lot of stress on the rim. You can hear the spokes relaxing! That is the reason it voids warranty.
