Isolating one factor (like STA) can lead to misleading conclusions.  For a taller rider like me, a steep STA is great provided the Reach has been lengthened enough that the ETT (that ancient metric) is long enough.  On the other hand, a slackish STA can feel ok on climbs if the CS length is long.   Net net: I’m a huge fan of slack HA, steep STA, longish CS trend BUT all these factors can combine together to create a wheelbase that’s too long.   Fascinating article in Enduro mag that used timed descents to establish why pros avoid overly long WB....
