Hi folks - need a bit of help on set up.
NP Mega, running 180mm Talas RC2s, 70mm stem and 730mm bars.
Steering is very flippy floppy. Once you get past maybe 10/15 degrees either side of dead ahead it flops over fast. This is noticable on the trails. I not like, esp if going quite quickly!
(compounded by the fact that other bike is a big, stable, 29er)
Axle to crown race measurement is within specifications from NP, and fork runs with decent sag.
Would a shorter stem & even wider bars help (I don't like the rise/sweep on current bars anyway) to cure this?
Would going down to 170/160mm forks be the only cure? (riding the forks at 140mm it doesn't happen).
I am 6'4", so bike (large) is technically a wee bit on the wee side for me, but is such a hoot in the alps and general big mountain/bike park days I don't want to change.
Your opinions are greatly apprecaited.
