Opinion: Why Is Everyone Talking About Seat Tube Angles?
IMHO, a proper bike fitting would take place with the bike on two scales. Measuring the weights of the front and rear tires separately. Using those weights to develop a scope of balance for the rider. Some don't want as much upper body input requirements while others are fine with an all-ride pushup. Then use the 'reach' number for standing position info and go from there. It does seem the steeper angles feel better for stronger-shouldered individuals more often than with lesser-developed-shouldered individuals. This, for me, is to say I like to see the scope of balance points that a bikes geo allows and fit from there.

Rock Shox Vivid Air R2c 240x76 with 2 rebuild kits

$140 USD
A smooth running 240x76mm rear air shock. Rock Shox Vivid Air R2C. Has a slow spot at its recommended sag point so i'm including two complete rebuild kits. You'll have to get one installed and you'll have a 2nd for next time a few years down the road. Excellent performance. I switched frames and cannot run this size so i'm selling it. No damage. Holler anytime. Thanks. Dan

Your stoked! The evolink is brilliant. IMHO the travel on the Pole's Evolink platform(including the Machine & Stamina) don't negatively effect any riding, they seem to lessen one's level of fatigue from trail input thru the suspension. Meaning you can ride smoother for longer. Thats why they added the Stamina, to lessen the fatigue caused by sustained bump inputs. The evolink will treat you well. Happy Holidays.

Got one, an XL Machine TR. SO STOKED. Other bike, a Transition Patrol. So much control, so much fun. Peddle up efficiently every time on every terrain and RIP down like a DH rig. Notice the trend, all other brands(save Transition's SBGs and the Geometron) slowly running steeper seattube angles and slacker front ends and 2.6" to 3" tires. Pole is the goods, They started there. A fine product all the way around.
