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?

Sorta ... it does calm it, but not quite the same....I have been on the rootdown for a couple months now with a 77 STA and I will say all the hardtails should have one. Power over cranks is insanely efficient. Riding posture is super comfortable on steeps and you can just power up switchbacks like a goat. I love this damn thing.

It's worth mentioning that the rootdown has a curved seattube, so it's going to ride a little slacker than the geometry numbers suggest, depending on the pedaling height. Most hardtails have a straight seattube. It makes a considerable difference.

If a bike has a bent seattube it should have a non effective seattube measurement and effective seat tube measurement. If it does not on the print than somebody is missing some info.

+10000
One of my biggest peeves with geo charts. Although even that is only part of the equation since it matters where the bend is too.... but it's a start.
Almost every geo chart that only has one measurement is gonna be the effective STA

Really like these frames, however I feel that the back wheel is way to close to the seat tube
