I think the best comparison is the 951 to the GG-DH. I don't buy into the forward/rearward axel path debate too much, as I rely on the ride comparison more than the path debate. After riding the bikes back to back, I think the most important aspects of a bikes ride is the geometry, followed by suspension leverage curve, and then followed by quality of suspension components. It took me weeks to tune the 951 to a feel that I liked, in comparison it took me days to get the GG tuned to a feel I liked. The GEO between the bikes is similar but the suspension leverage curve is where the two bikes differ significantly and this is why I think the GG is a better design. As for pedal-ability, the GG is better than the 951 due to the way I have the 951 setup versus the GG. However, they are both DH bikes and are made to go fast not pedal uphill.
