Steve correctly pointed out a qualifier

My comment was deliberate. That's precisely why I limited my offered comments to 'geometry and fit'. I intended to withhold comment about the more qualitative aspects that are informed as much by the rider and the rider's preferences. You are absolutely right that a perfectly fitting bike made from gossamer mithril is a different machine than a bike with the identical geometry made of thickwall OS.

But tubing stiffness is qualitative! How it affects you, on the other hand, is not.
