Exactly - XC geo is being pushed by race environment and development and has already pushed the offerings in the trail bike realm. A trail bike is theoretically basically just a burlier, more reliable XC bike with a bit more travel and more "fun" geometry and feel. When race XC bikes are coming out with head angles in the 68º range, then it makes sense that trail bikes should be getting 66º if they're running 140mm forks. I'm glad bikes are getting rowdier. Just because I want a short travel bike for trail riding doesn't mean I want it to steer like a reversing forklift.
