At 6’5”, I’m a little anxious about the STA too. Eager for demo programs to come back full swing.  The inconsistent SRAM spec prompted me to review the details of the XT bike. Happy to see that’s truly XT through and through. That’d have to be my pick from these models: while $6K isn’t exactly pocket change, this build is a far better value than the $5500 USD MSRP 9.7 model from 2018 that I own. Why? NX 11sp gruppo, 125mm Bonti post, Yari fork, and butter-soft 28H Line 30 alloy wheels shod with XC grade SE4 tires. (I’ve since replaced each of those components).
