Depending on what one needs in saddle position to achieve good balance, this may or may not be an issue. I'm a long torso guy who needs the saddle all the way back on a setback post. Some bike and saddle combos don't have quite enough adjustment to suit me, but I get by. YMMV.
So in your case, I guess you need a slacker seat tube angle than most. Do you know around what seat tube angle becomes too steep for you?

Relating this back to the OPís point, you donít really need the measurement he is describing, you just need to know the STA is not to steep. Do I have that correct?
