So if you just  install an Angleset without changing the fork it actually drops the front a bit which steepens the STA and shortens the effective top tube. Overforking the bike slackens out the STA (and HTA) and actually increases the ETT (although then I slam the saddle forward to get my pedaling position back). Anyways, overforking + -2 Angleset the seated feel of the bike hasn’t changed much (partially because I have some control of that via the saddle) but standing climbing and descending the Reach is shorter. Personally, I care more about a long wheelbase and weight balance between the wheels than long Reach by itself. With the chainstays run long, large frame, overforking and Angleset that Reach doesn’t feel super aggressive for a large but the weight balance is excellent.
