    Keep in mind I'm not a fitting expert or bike builder. But a head tube that is more steep tends to turn faster, which implies faster handling. So more responsive. A more slack head tube may not turn...

    I'd be curious to know if the Guru has a slack head tube, or more trail (or both?). So they fit it to you, and perhaps handling and some other things suffered? I don't know enough about fitting...

    Could be, which is why I mentioned that I referred to my size range. I can't tell by looking at the numbers on a small bike if it's upright, I just know my own. 535 TT with 120-130 ht is 'race.'...
