    hey everybody on here has said the geometry matches G2 but according to the chart posted in this thread the ETT is much shorter. Does anybody suspect the chart is wrong?

    Is this sarcasm or am I missing something?

    I picked up a "2013" 29Point4 for $699, only available in white. Now the website is showing it as a "2014," but everything seems to be the same, including size availability. The only thing that jumps out as different is the CaneCreek headset, but thats probably just me trying to find something (not home to check my bike, its probably the same). And the price is still $699..

    So it makes sense why nobody would buy 2012 used when they can have 2013/2014 for $50 more (Even though now I have doubts as to the credibilty of any of the model years on BikesDirect. I bought mine December 30 or 31 I think, do they just change the year to say 2014 when the calendar says 2014?

    The 29.4 at is currently a little cheaper than normal, but even with that in mind, $650 for a used one is overpriced. I'd say their model years are accurate for what's actually shipped and listed on the box. What's on the website for a specific model year isn't always what's in the box though. I bought a 29.2 that was supposed to come with a Dart3, but had an XC28TK. Basically the same fork, but new stock. I don't think BD updates their website specifications all that often.

    I've been riding the Gravity 29point6 for two years now. Great bike and perfect handling for my style. I really enjoy the long wheel base for fast climbing. I ended up bending the rear triangle and they replaced the frame for free, just had to pay shipping. They said it was a frame defect. I love the bike, so if anyone is questioning it's validity, it's the real deal.

    I just built a Unbranded Silver Point 1 as I had a fork I could live with. It's a suntour off a G2 Trek. The length and handling is great but the stand-over does seem to be higher than advertised. I ordered a 19'' hoping it would be at 30.1 mid tube. It is actually right at 32 mid top tube. Still 1/2 in shorter than my old frame but being 6'1'' w/ 32 inseam without shoes its pretty close. I wonder what the 17.5 is like but the chart claims its 1 inch shorter in length. I cant give up that inch, my old frame had about a 24 inch ETT. 24 was just a hair too long, this one feels good. Can anyone verify the actual ETT on the 17.5 in. I am going to measure my 19in if it ever stops raining. Figures new build and it has to rain all weekend. Don't laugh at my low seat that's what BMX riding does to a guy lol.

    Well after 3 rides I have began to like the size. Way better than my old frame and rear wheel. I could feel it swaying in the rear with flex going uphill and under hard pedaling. This thing doesn't move much at all. This is the first cassette hub I have ever had on any bike also. I had no idea what I was missing lol.
