I have the X2 and love it but i don't do any technical climbing on it. The new
X2's are going to have a climb switch on them and you can also upgrade the
older ones, thats something I"ll do when it's due a service.
Sorry to hear of your problems, I've had mine for a couple of months now and
have had no issues with the frame yet. I'm hoping it stays that way. I had the
last iteration of the Sanction also and remember not being impressed with GT
customer service, hopefully they come through for you.
You sir are a legend, thank you so much Raphael for this great information and
coming up with a fix! This is my second GT Sanction, I had the previous model
years back, loved the bike but never had much luck with GT customer service.
If i'm understanding this properly: the bearing replacement for the dog bone
bushings? Are they not standard bearings? I have only a couple of rides on
mine but would like to get ahead of it if it is indeed a known issue.
I am 6'2″ and have the 2016 Sanction, i'd say it fits perfect.
I also haven't experienced the chainguide or cable housing issues that Tim
discussed. I did build it from frame up though. I have a lever only KS
Supernatural so i havent had any dropper cable issues either. Loving it so
far, its going to be my logging roads, shuttle and WBP bike.
