I've just ordered a BH Ultralight but did consider a G6 but was worried about comfort/position on long climbs. In a perfect world I'd have both, but given the choice of just one bike I went the Ultralight.
As you said in a perfect world you would have both and I would also have a R5 in the shed too. The R5 does climb slightly better but this bike I find amazing. I'm 71kgs and 180cm tall and I can climb ok but I needed help maintaining a 40km/h speed for as long as possible and I found nothing else that suited me. I'm still doing pb's on hills and spent 10 day in Adelaide climbing in which I did 1000kms with no discomfort. So I would say it climbs well but a lighter bike should be better. Mine weighs 7.2kgs with all the bells and whistles.
