I know and is probably what I will get when in the market for another HT.

Extremely! Just very sad that there is no longer a steel HT option.

I was looking at the geo of those steel Honzo's earlier today. I would like have seen a SA at 76 or 77 degrees.
74.5 seems a little slack compared to other new geo rides out there.

Who needs a 77 degree seattube angle on a hardtail?

Tall people.
Along with my 180mm One Up dropper.

I'm just saying, I have abnormally long legs and a crazy pedalling height, using 210mm oneup droppers on my bikes, and my hardtail has a 74* sta, and my fully has a 76.6* sta, and while riding, they pretty much feel the same. I don't think a hardtail (which's hta steepens as it sags) needs a 77* sta.

My 2 cents

Fair enough. For me a 76 degree SA or steeper is the way forward on any bike I pedal uphill.

Probably not the thread to be asking but just out of curiosity, if you move your seat forward does it affect climbing in a positive way as in using it to counter slack sta or does the actual sta have to be steeper to make climbing nicer?
