There really isn't a difference. You'll notice that your bike is faster in turns, though. Also more twitchy steering wise (not a bad thing).

the same principle applies to a short rear end. the shorter the distance between your rear axle and bottom bracket, the easier it will be to pull up the front end. a steeper HT brings the front axle back a little bit, making it slightly easier to pop the rear wheel into the air.

Easier for nose manuals, twitchy in turns. I guess the Fly Luna has a 75.5° headtube angle
