So I know that you can't judge a bike only by its numbers, but I'm confused on something,
Most 5-6 in bikes, as they tend to increase travel, slacken the head tube and seat tube angles to keep the rider centered more between the wheels (as opposed to a agressive XC position or a really down and low position on a DH bike).
One comparison I am using is the Yeti 575 - its got a STA of 72 and a HA of 68. This makes sense to me. The Enduro and Pitch (as referenced from Spec web site) have a STA of 74 deg and a HTA of 67.
While I really like the idea of a 67 head tube angle, the 74 deg seat tube angle sort of scares me in that my weight might be too far forward making the bike harder to pull up.
For those of you that have pitches and enduro's, do you find the geometry pretty "forward"?
I know chainstay length and B height and such also comes into play but Seat tube angles somewhat constrain where you sit in a bike. Set back posts will work, but that means that you'll have an aweful lot of top tube in front of you............thoughts?
