putting a link up might garner more responses.

how else do people know what you are looking at?

If anyone wants to know anything about my GSpot that isn´t covered in the review then feel free to ask. I´m going out to ride it for a couple of hours but after that will be back!

It´s quite a short bike, I´m 5´10" and ride the medium. My mate Carlos is 5´7" and I convinced him to buy one, he rides the small and loves it. The GSpots I see on CRC are older models because Cove has changed the seatpost size to 31.9 to take a dropper. It is worth getting one of those.

I use my GSpot for everything. I ride DH on it and ride epic XC. It´s heavy but climbs well, i.e. doesn´t bob. I love it.

Might be too late but... I bought one from CRC. They have 2011 and 2012 models, the 2011 has a 30mm seat post, the 2012 a 30.9mm. BUT (and I have had this confirmed directly by Cove). They are EXACTLY the same - they just started reaming the seatpost out to the larger size in 2012. So you can either get your LBS to do this or, if like me you are wanting a dropper seat post, get the new Gravity dropper LP turbo which comes in 30mm.
