The 70 degree berg's advantage was a short vertical moment of inertia allowing quick side to side transitions and making the bike feel lighter than it is, although it has a relatively high CoG. I don't think rally is it's best application, where you need to load the bike with a lot of weight up high, when it is already top heavy?
