Field Test: Giant Trance Advanced 29
@MikerJ: Ah true fair call. I guess I'm coming at it from a climb to descend riding point of view. For flatter terrain it might be less ideal. I used that Scout for a few marathon XC events and loved it for pedalling comfort although I'm only a Sports class punter, and I've got short femurs so I've always run my seats pushed all the way forward on the rails.

I've never heard of a drawback to having a steeper seat angle, nor had anyone complain that they couldn't get their seat far enough back. So why do some manufacturers persist with making the rider perch themselves on the nose of the saddle to stop the bike flipping backwards on climbs? After changing from a carbon Trance to a heavier allloy Transition Scout with much better seat angle, I was amazed just how much more pleasantly the Scout climbed despite the weight penalty. Slack seat angles make bikes feel like you're pedalling a recumbent uphills and it is such an easy thing to fix. Measuring SA at stack height is pretty useless though, because if the manufacturer has enough kick in the seat tube you can have a 76ยบ+ SA and still end up over the back axle at full seat post extension.
