I'm not a particular fan of the steep STA. I haven't found any performance benefit personally. On longer rides I find being pushed forward towards the bars less comfortable then a less steep STA. I've got droppers with 1" setback heads now so I can adjust my saddle position rearward a bit and that helps. There are bikes now with STAs so steep I don't bother even thinking about them as options. I'm 5'11" with a 33" pants inseam so not particularly unusual body shape. I've always wanted a steel FS bike so I may go that route at some point so I can get a custom STA depending how things progress towards 90 degrees!
