All of them. 72° unsagged. Same with Cotic.

I love my Swarf for having a super steep seat angle.
I hate bikes where you sit over the rear axle while climbing a 10% incline.

I know it's probably not a problem for most people, because they haven't tried it. But I cannot see ANY downside to making a bike climb much better and descend with much more prowess, if you use a dropper post.

Thanks brother! I put a lot of thought into this build, as I did with my last Kingdom. It has become a hobby that keeps me sane with the work I do. I really do appreciate your comments and enthusiasm, as well as that of some other followers here at Pinkbike. CheersBeer

Yeah, wrong thread my friend.

Do those Stantons still come with a stupid seat tube angle?

And I won't believe anything to do with tyre clearance on a Stanton until somebody bought a frame and actually tried to fit the wheels.

Steel is probably the same as the new ti version and a few have been posted running 27.5×2.8" tyres.

I don't know about this stupid seat angle?..why what's up with it?..on SB or SL or both.

look's great fishy Smile I found you in one of my jacket's this morninglol

I'll see how I feel next season, but this could possibly have me selling my rootdown. Love the idea of slapping on B+ rims tires for winter, or gnarl, while keeping the wagon wheels for my local smooth trails.

^^^really JesseE? Why? Does everyone on here replace your bikes every 12 month's or so to keep up with the times or boredom? I suppose if I were younger and as fit as I used to be maybe? But really unless my frame packed it in, I see no point in replacing it obviously the choice of the owner but,

I agree on the seatpost angle because on steep climbs your ass gets over the rear axle and then you start wheeling or become unstable. We have some steep trails here in Salt Lake City and at some places I have measured between 15 - 20% pitches. If you have long top tube, a steep seat angle will put you more central on the bike so it is a win-win in my book to have much steeper seat tube.2 cents

Big fat tires for different conditions, that's the only reason. My existing frame only does a 2.4, which is fine for most stuff, but winter & certain trails in the region would be a lot more fun on some 3.0s. That's all.

You and me both, man. As if Chromag 29ers weren't good enough...this one has me seriously considering a steel frame to accept the parts on my current 29er. Geo is spot on (for me) and the addition of plus just makes it more "future proof" even if I keep the 29ers on most of the time Wink
