I see these on sale - how’s it working out? How is a 73 deg unsagged seat angle on climbs? How large a rear tire can you fit?
I really like the bike. I have ridden it on everything from Upper/Lower Oilcan to squamish to my local trails in cumberland. Great on everything. Although it has a slack HTA, the rest of the geometry is more traditional. It is very nimble and light riding. Climbing is fine. The front end tracks well on steeps and stays down nicely. I don't really think hardtails needs as steep of STA as the rear end doesn't squish while climbing. The only place I start to wish I was riding something else is really fast choppy riding where you feel the lack of suspension and smaller wheels. I would like to try running it as a 120mm Mullet bike one day. Rear tire clearance is good. Not sure what you could fit in there but I run 2.5's with lots of space.
This is what it looks like with a 2.4 minion
