Surprisingly, I haven't noticed really any negative things about it. The STA was steep to begin with, so no issues there. This Surface version was originally designed around 29 / 27+ so I was a bit timid to go 27.5 regular (2.5) rear, mostly concerned with crank strikes (170mm).  Nada. The setup was super confidence inspiring and I was comfortable descending most things in Squamish I'd do on my Mega(Tower). Then, after a month or so I thought why not up the travel to 170. Only then did I notice some wallowing on the steepest of grunty climbs. I feel it's worth the small tradeoff for a little bit more plushness up front.
