- Tell me about … Head Angles
I’ve recently increased travel up front from 120mm to 140mm, actual increase of 20mm axle to crown length, and only a 40g weight increase.. I’ve removed 15mm headset spacers from under the stem to maintain a similar bike position which works for me.
The bike now seems a little sluggish and vague. Is this due to the change in head angle?Posted 9 years agopoppaMember
Slackening the head angle will not only alter the steering feel, but will also slacken the seat angle – which will move your centre of mass slightly backward.
– Shorter stem will speed up the steering and move your centre of mass further forward.
– Moving the saddle forward will again move your centre of mass slightly further forward.Posted 9 years ago
