Don't Get Hung Up On the Numbers - Opinion
Right on. Balance out your ride. If you're already strong in one area of riding (climbing, descending, tech/gnar, jumps/drops), why get a bike that excels in mainly doing that -- when you're already good at "that" -- and which makes you perform even worse at the parts of the ride you were already under-performing on? If you're riding a lift-assisted DH trail or bike park, by all means get a DH/park specific bike. If you're riding DJ trails or ramps, by all means get a DJ specific bike. But when you're riding well-rounded singletrack/all-mountain trails with equal amounts climbing/descending, groomed/gnarly, flowy/techy...you know, what 90+% of us actually do 90+% of the time...buy a well-rounded bike that makes you a well-rounded rider. Simple, I think.

Whyte G-160 RS - Review
@DJ-24: If you want to use a 170-180mm dropper post, as most people your height seem to be asking for, then you will need the shorter seat tube to allow that amount of drop.
