I got a 2018 GX Carbon and so far it is great - First experience with Devinci and was a bit worried about the size, pedaling performance...etc, but so far so good. Pedals uphill great, Eagle is solid, thing is so planted on the downhill and extremely stable in the air. Again, no prior experience with a Spartan - coming from 2014 26" Specialzed Enduro size medium to the 27.5" size large Spartan so lots of new things to get used to...wheel size, reach, frame size, suspension design...etc. Can't wait to really get a handle on it and see what she can do on some of our more gravity style trails in Northern VT.


What is you height and decided to go two sizes up? (Just asking out of curiosity) . Since a medium specialized is considered a small with today’s standards... Its the same with my 2016 medium Spartan... with the new line up it is considered to be a small frame....

I am 5' 11" - There really wasn't too much of a decision process - my medium, which was a crash replacement from Specialized through my local bike shop years ago felt a bit cramped in the cockpit sometimes - other times it felt just right - almost all of the sizing charts, local bike shops (nearly 6 different shops)...etc suggested I should be on a large frame because of my height. Also, the Spartan I bought was here on Pinkbike and such an insane deal that I couldn't really say no to it - It was a size large, it was the right price. That is it really.

Question:

Anyone else having a knocking sound coming out of the frame when riding downwards?
Tried the black cable-insulation and checked all the bolts for tension but to no avail.

Thanks in advance for any help of any kind!

I did when I installed a different dropper. I re-run the cable through the the foam insulator inside the frame and it has been quiet since.

Loving my custom build, just got my push for it, she's finally done and rides like no other bike (in a good way) I've ever ridden.

How's the ride on coil compared to the air? Just picked up a 29, and I'm not loving the RS. I have a '18 Troy with a DB Coil IL and love the ride on that. Thinking that a longer travel bike might lose some of that poppyness with coil.
