Opinion: Why Is Everyone Talking About Seat Tube Angles?
I think traditional bike-fit programs have become somewhat outdated since over the last few years the majority of riders have been going with much longer bikes. The steeper STA helps keep the top tube length in check so you can go longer without being uncomfortably stretched out. I'm really liking the new Jeffsy geo, long reach but short top tube due to the steep STA. IMHO, it changes everything.

9Point8 Fall Line Dropper Post 150mm Drop 30.9

$160 USD
9Point8 Fall Line Dropper Post, 150mm Drop, 30.9 Diameter. Internal cable routing, 1x remote lever included, cable not included. I bought this from PB a few months ago, works fine but it turns out 150mm drop is too much for my frame size. Inline saddle mount is installed but I also have a 25mm offset if you prefer that.

First Ride: YT's New Long-Travel 29er, the Jeffsy 29 CF Pro Race
@bananowy: I probably could have said this better by saying that my bike never feels too long when I'm in the attack position, but it sometimes feels too long when seated. I'm seriously considering a new Jeffsy or Guerilla Gravity bike. Both bikes have reach that is comparable to my Canyon Spectral, but the top tubes are about 30mm shorter due to their steeper seat angles. Cheers!

@vinay: Point taken. I used to think reach was by far the most important number, but I've come back to looking at TTL mostly because I'm between L and XL frame sizes, and sized up. I loved the geo descending but sometimes felt too stretched up during long days of riding. Slamming the saddle forward (effectively shortening the top tube and steepening the seat tube) helped out a lot. Now when I look at geo charts, a long reach doesn't scare so long as the TTL is short enough.

@bananowy: Top tube length still matters in determining your seated position. You know, the one you're in most of the time.

@WAKIdesigns: Or maybe in 2021 we'll have the second coming of 275s. The reviews will say how awesome they are because the geo was crap the first time around. Sound familiar?

I think the AL version is last year's frame, hopefully that will be updated soon.

Reach is just one of the factors. Chainstay length plus reach and head angle all play a role. Wheelbase was 1178mm, now it's 1215mm.

If the reviewer called this bike a monster truck I'd agree with you, but he uses words like playful and poppy. I don't think the lower spec'd bike would less playful and poppy with 10mm less travel and a Pike up front. I think we can assume the Pro build kit would be very similar to the Pro Race.
