    Given that the extremities of the two bikes below are in the same place with only the fork / headtube ratio being different how would you expect these to ride in relation to each other? (Other than the red one being faster, obvz)

    I can’t see how they would be different but I suspect they would be.

    Assuming red has longer travel forks to give the longer fork, it would sag more giving a steeper head angle and lower bb. Or are the forks rigid in this example?

    Yep, rigid forks.

    difference is that the fork crown will hit the down tube on the green one?

    No, it’s a really low profile, rounded rigid fork. If it was a suspension fork then it would probably be pretty close actually.

    The drawing makes the green one look slacker angled but I see the only difference is 1mm more fork offset on the red one.

    very little difference.

    I was hoping that would be the case. The red bike is the new one which I’d like to feel the same as the older, green bike but with a more aesthetically pleasing head tube.
