I think the HA's are identical (2021 Meta TR), and the seat tube is also very steep but maybe not Privateer steep, not sure on the balanced CS length thoHad considered it, but i'm after the slacker HA, balanced CS length and steep ESA. Otherwise a good option!
It's got a heap of anti-squat too, so I think they're saying it'll do what's needed up steep fireroads but you'll probably still feel the weight."The 141 is ready to ease you to the top with it’s steep climbing position.."
Is it just me or does this basically say 'we don't care about climbing performance but all bikes can be eased up hills and we figured a steep seat angle would help'?
Looks like a 5 year old Santa Cruz, I think that's a good thing!Just a nice looking & very refined bicycle:
I like it.
