#!markdown It's an interesting question… Although, from the photos, Pete has his saddle pushed far forward on a post with little offset (lots of rearward adjustment left if he wanted it effectively slacker) so I'm guessing it works great for him. Actually, assuming the geometry is all listed as un-sagged (75-degree STA / 65-degree HTA with 160mm fork) with 20% sag (32mm) and Pete's 160mm Fox 36 being already 4mm shorter that the stock Lyrik (567mm vs. 571mm) the STA is going to be notably steeper than advertised when pedaling the bike. Bleeding edge steep. Speaking strictly from numbers-on-paper it certainly wouldn't work for me. But, it's good to have many different fit options on the market so if it works for Pete guaranteed it works for plenty of people.
