I've got 2 bikes, one is a 2013 Stanton Switchback with outdated geo. It's super fun. I can ride it at dirt jumps, I commute on it, I ride it on almost all of the local trails, not skipping many features. Some days I feel like it's my spirit animal. I also have a 2018 Nicolai G16. It's also super fun. It goes really fast on steep, rough terrain. It pedals up hills super comfortably. I can only bunnyhop about 12" on it. I have yet to be able to manual it for more than about 6". Getting the front wheel off the ground is hard. It's different, not better.  Horses for courses. "Modern" geo is all just based on what people like at the moment on the trail they're riding. It's not actually superior.
