I’ve long been a proponent of size specific STAs as the folks I know who most appreciate steep STAs are tall and the folks I know who dislike them are short(er). There’s of course plenty of folks who don't care and great for them. I do know a number of short(er), usually pedal and plunge, riders who prefer steeper STAs now bc as well though. So maybe a matrix where the bigger the size the steeper the post gets and the more XC oriented a bike gets the slacker the post goes.  I would love to try a rear offset post. My custom hardtail has a longer Reach and much longer effective top tube so I’m not concerned about the bike feeling bigger & likewise, my bar is in a similar position to my Marin (just less spacers underneath) because I like a fairly high bar.  It’s going to be interesting (slacker STA, slacker HTA, shorter Reach, longer effective too tube) to try the mullet setup.
