With saddle at ride height I'm at ~73.5 deg STA \[non-setback dropper\] on the custom HT with a 140mm fork that's not sagged. I could have gone with a slacker STA, but that would have meant a shorter Reach as the bars would be too far away. So it was a bit of a trade off. I have an older rigid MTB with a 72.5 deg STA and I put a 1" setback seatpost on it. Pedals very well for me, but the front end is short compared to the newer custom HT. My FS bikes have 74 deg and 75 deg eff STA \[based on geo chart\] with a 1" setaback dropper the 74 deg bike has the saddle in a good position for me. I find the 75 deg bike I am a little further forward than I would like. It's not bad, but I definitely don't want steeper.
