Privateer Bikes' 161 Prototype is an Aluminium Full Suss Aimed at Racers - Eurobike 2019
@Primoz: Why would you say reach is not important? I understand your point regarding cockpit length being more important for comfortable pedaling and steep seat tube angle being important for comfortable climbing. These two equate to long reach, of course. But, do you think that a reach itself can not be too long for downhill performance? That while standing up on an MTB, we are still far below the limit of reach making us too stretched?

@EnduroManiac: How tall are you? I am 183cm (6 feet) with relatively long legs (89cm inseam, 35 inch) and web calculator suggests XL size, the one you have. I fear, that would feel too big, but I have not way of testing it before ordering...

@Timo82: You want a steep seat angle, check! You want a comfortable cockpit length, check! You want a reasonably slack head tube angle, check! Geometrically, there is no way to make a bike with these characteristics a short wheelbase one. :) But yes, I am also a little scared to try a bike with a 1250mm wheelbase, even though I will probably soon end up on one.

Orbea also speced their 2020 models with shimano slx/xt. Also giant has, but not the reign 29, apparently.
