#!markdown Pete, I totally disagree on the STA for descending. I've ridden a few bikes now that have such slack actual seat angles that the bikes are awkward to ride. The saddles basically disappear so far forward that I lose a stabilization point. I constantly work the bike with my thighs and knees when descending. Also, I descend with my saddle in multiple positions depending on the trail. It isn't about all the way up or all the way down. For a pumpy, less steep descent I'll go 2/3 down so I can steer and stabilize the bike with my thighs and knees. I'll measure my actual STA but I can tell you already that it is not in the high 60's and I'm 6'5″ tall so I have quite a bit of post showing.
