Opinion: Why Is Everyone Talking About Seat Tube Angles?
Like the Command Post I had turned around backwards. Looked goofy, but that's what I had to do to get my butt over the pedals on the Stumpjumper that was too small for me. Being tall I have to settle for bikes too small, and the more slack the seat tube, the more problem it is as the seat is extended so far.

Bike Standards—How Did We Get Here?—A Podcast
It would be interesting to see how things would have gone if mountain bikes hadn't started out as adaptations of road bikes but instead were actually designed from the ground up to be effective for trail riding. As a mechanical engineer, I am fully aware of the bias that comes from trying to revise something instead of just starting from scratch. I have so many questions... why didn't they START with 11 speeds instead of 8 or whatever? If 148mm is the max hub width for ergonomics, why did they START narrower? Why in the world did handlebars start out so narrow when it is so simple to see how much better control you get with wider bars? The good thing is that it looks to me like functionality is about as good as it's going to get (excluding tech advancements), but people probably said that ten years ago too haha. Now we just have to judge fads and marketing gimmicks that won't improve anything or may even hurt performance.

Continental Talks Tires - Interbike 2017
It sounds to me more like they tooled up for 30mm rims and now want to convince everyone that it's better than 35mm.

Slam that Stem? Cane Creek Debuts the "Slamset" - Eurobike 2017
Now if we can get bike manufacturers to quit putting the seat angle on trail bikes so far back. Then I could reach the bars on slammed stem, and I wouldn't have to sacrifice fork travel for stem spacers.

Depends on how hot it is outside. The hotter the temp, the harder the cod smack.
