2016 XL Hightower feels real soft laterally.

Set-up:

XL carbon frame (brand new bearings and sleeves kit);
i9 trail 270 29 wheelset with new rear bearings;
2.4 DHR tires at 25-26psi, standard casing
Rear DPX 2 150mm (LT stye), 1 volume spacer, 20-30% sag.
Frame set-up in "High" position

Frame has a lot of miles, but can't believe it's that soft now.

Any thoughts on this ? Where to start from ? Swapping wheels didn't help.

Cheers !

I would check your bearings, hubs, spoke tension etc.... I doubt the frame is the problem.

I replaced every bearing and wheel is as tight as possible. I'll try a different wheel.
