Hi,
I'm currently evaluating the Spartan 2019. After some comparison and numerous test-rides on a 29-er GX (not LTD) and on a 27.5 2018-model in X01, I'm asking myself if that difference between the GX and GX-LTD in fork setup has an impact on tight-corner agility. The GX has a Lyrik charger2 RC fork with a 51mm offset and the GX LTD has a the RC2 model fork with a 42mm offset.
The GX I rode is quite OK in tight, steep corner, but the fork itself is rubbish. On the 27.5-er X01 model I tested a lyrik RCT3 which is a great suspension.
Has anyone compared the two different offsets directly?
According to mny understanding of bike-geometry to shorter offset should make the bike more stable at speed but less agile.
Btw, I currently ride a 2015 spartan 27.5 custom build. And if nothing really changes my mind the next days/weeks I will go for the 29-er, but also custom build, because there are too many spec details that are no-gos for me. but still the frame is great.
cheers
