I know some folks who really love super steep STAs. They all live at the bottom of mountains and pedal-and-plunge and even more than that they find they create power well in that position. It’s great there are bikes for them! I look at a bike like the new Stumpjumper and the geo screams Andrew... wanted to ride one so badly... until I see that ~77* STA. It just seems every company is going that way so now I need to figure out work arounds to make the bikes fit me. Which is why I didn’t shy away from the Titan. As to cog size. On my Marin I basically never used the 51t cog with my 32t ring. Would have happily ditched it. On the Banshee I’m in it regularly. Same build between the bikes.
