I truly wish that (looking at pre/post-Covid times) there were more good multi-brand test ride opportunities for bike purchasers. I've met a fair few people who've spent 5K+ on the wrong bike because it fit fine in the parking lot but then didn't really work on the trail.  That said, if someone buys a bike that doesn't "work" for them I always ask what they've tried. For example, the SQLab saddle here (60X), run rearward, changed my pedaling position on the Titan from trying to perfect. Relative to the cost of a bike that's a tiny investment.  I also have played around with stem length and bars a bunch because I have a small library of these items and have ended up with a 50mm or 60mm stem (I suspected on a large I would max at a 40mm) with a 12° backsweep bar.
