Ha! I think doing a deeper dive on current geo trends it’s once again an example of bike designers taking the easy road of what’s popular - like with fork offsets - rather than choosing spec/geo that’s best for a given size or application. Just talking FS bikes and not accounting for personal preference... Effective seat angle for a XXL bike with 525mm Reach probably should be 81-degrees. Effective seat angle for the XS of the same bike probably should be closer to 74. Look at that... there’s room for 6x sizes in between. The M and M/L are where the bike jumps from 27” to 29” wheels. Oh, and the rear center of the XS can be 430mm and let’s add 5mm per size. Beautiful.
