Angleset & +20mm longer fork isn’t making the seat angle slacker and with the same length fork it’s getting steeper. I don’t see any negative here and it’s not an expensive thing to try regardless, that can potentially be a great improvement. Many of these bikes also had longer (17.5+) stays so even though the top tube isn’t growing the Angleset also improves wheelbase.
Your point is totally valid for anyone chasing the steep(er) seat angle trend. Older Rocky’s (2011+ Slayer is another good example) and some older Specialized bikes (originally spec’d with rear-offset posts) fit this bill well. Personally, I’m totally happy with an ‘outdated’ seat position and don’t think a 76+ STA is a go/no-go metric. Taller riders can argue that point sure, but again longer stays play a big role in body position relative the wheels as well.
Different strokes; different folks though absolutely.
