What I really don't understand about the 12 and 16 degree versions is that SQlab lists the 12 degree version as the one that offers a more upright position. Seems logical that more sweep would put your hands closer to your body giving a more upright position.

Marketing copy reads: "The model with a 16° backsweep provides a rather stretched riding position on hardtails and race full-sussers, while the model with a 12° backsweep is perfectly suitable for an upright riding position on an all-mountain or enduro bike."

Could you shine some light on this?
