I went back! I had a 2022 Range (77.25 ESTA, for the record) and sold it in favour of keeping my ~75-76 degree STA bikes. Was it nice on stupid climbs up absolutely dumb stuff? Sure. Was there a compromise elsewhere? Boy howdy was there. Of course, 75/76 is quite a bit steeper than the decade old Process 111, but you can still find many Internet Ergonomics Experts complaining that bikes with those numbers are too slack.  I'd consider a Range again with a custom build in a size smaller, but then the seated reach would be so short I'd be hitting my knees on the handlebars in seated turns. Oh the fit conundrum! Maybe YOU can never go back. Ha! Also, I don't know if the point of these articles are for people who have things like 2022 Ranges or Privateers or whatever to read it and go "hmm, you know what, I think I need to go back and pick up a 2014 Banshee/Kona. That's what my riding is missing!".
