Anyone found a Scandal29er too "head down"ish for trail use?
I've just moved from the South Downs to the midlands, and went for a ride around Cannock Chase last week - my Scandal 29er suddenly feeds very sketchy in terms of my weight being high, forwards and when the fork is compressed the front end is very low (so the short steep "riding down the rocks" bits felt rather too close to an OTB moment for my liking. I ended up riding with the fork locked out to avoid the low front end causing issues.
Has anyone had any success with a slackset on a Scandal 29er, did it make much difference?
I do have options to raise the bars (they can come up an inch), put risers on, and even to swap to a larger size frame (I've got a larger but identical frame built up as a rigid singlespeed), but would appreciate some input before investing time / money swapping parts around.
(Is the frame just fundamentally to low at the front for trail use?)
