Interestingly, the pinkbike review suggests that the bike only feels in its zone when you are pinning it. I have skis that are like this where they only feel good when you are charging the mountain but at slower speeds are a little cumbersome feeling. Maybe this bike is setup for charging. I wouldn't be surprised. Santa Cruz has lots of bikes that are for the masses. This one might just be a real enduro racer's bike.  as for sizes etc, I am always confused why everyone focuses on reach. I guess for descending, the reach tells you how far behind the bars your body sits but for pedalling position, the ett is the number to look at, and the reach is more a function of the seat tube angle and wheelbase.
