- steep head angle + fork with greater offset=steeper head angle?
more offset decreases trail.
less trail makes the bike less stable in "turning" situations.
more trail makes it more stable.
however, falling down a hillside and hitting things, I think personally more fork offset (the front wheel further away from you) might make the bike MORE stable (distance forward of COG).

slowed down steering and put more weight on the fork making them work better.
worked great in all situations except steep down’s, or stuff where you were in danger of going otb… So good for sort of carving singletrack, but not slow steep tech.
