It's my understanding that seat tube angle only effects stand over height, it will have no effect on BB to saddle distance. While a slack seat tube does lower the saddle, the saddle to pedal distance should remain the same, shouldn't it? And as far as I know, Colnago's were not known for their slack seat tubes, my Super seems to be in the 74 degree ballpark. Shorter cranks perhaps?
