Excuse my ramblings.....So, taking my trusty mark 1 nomad to the alps again this year (I had hoped to get a proper dh frame but nothing in my price range). This time all my buddies have big bikes so I want to beef up from its current AM build and feel.
I have managed to get some bargain coil 180 domains to swap my 36 talas out, hopefully slacken the head angle slightly and raise the bb. But I presume the front end will now be significantly higher, soooo
I am thinking of replacing the bar and stem I currently have a 65mm with mid rise 750 bar for a 50mm stem with low rise 750.
What do you think? Will this have the effect I want? Better down alps?
I also have a layback post hanging about somewhere which could be tempting to try and get my weight further back. I know you aren't supposed to be in the saddle but sometimes I get knackered and have to have a little sit down on the less severe sections...
I might have budget for another £100 or so which could be spent on an Angleset (standard head tube) or new slack mounts. I'll be on a reliable rp23 not enough cash to get a coil ;(
Have some dual plys and a chain device to fit too.
Any other suggestions?
