    How steep is too steep?

    For an XC race bike what is the maximum head tube angle you guys recommend? Its going to be used for mostly flat/rolling terrain with roots and some rocks. Just dont want to make a big mistake here.

    It depends on usage, wheel size, fork height and fork rake.
    No longer member of the bike industry nor society, so don't hassle me.

    Trust your builder

    That's what you're paying them for. If you're building this yourself, look around at XC bikes you like and do something similar.
