When I was young we could only afford crappy Halfrauds so-called 'racing' bikes. So I went rowing for 20 yrs instead. Then along came mtbs and I could afford a decent one but, alas, by then I was too old n fat 4 racing. Boohoo.

First Ride: Bold Unplugged Volume 1
You mentioned the Linkin Trail Classic in the first sentence but failed to mention the Linkin Trail LT (Long Travel). Let's talk about those. The Linkin Trail was designed to be four bikes from one frame - medium travel 27.5 or 29 and long travel 27.5 or 29. Now it seems to me it's impossible to get geos to work properly across four designs from one frame without making compromises to performance in each configuration. Your statement ' It's hard to nail down the exact geometry specs for each frame size' kinda says as much. The very fact that they've brought in an 'enduro' model with the same amount of travel as the LTLT kinda proves that the concept didn't really work. Oh well at least it shows they're willling to learn by bringing in this enduro specific model. All they need to do now is re-design the LTC as a short travel xc specific frame. Oh and they need to modify each of the frames to accept shocks other than DT Swiss. At the moment both designs are like Apple products locking you in.
