- What headangle for Bikepark Wales?
Do 0.5 increments really give the range of adjustments you need? Fair play to you if you can ride a bike set up that casually, but I need mine at 0.1 degree increments maximum. You’d be buggered if it turns out you need 68.3…
Or conversely does 0.5 actually make any meaningful difference at all apart from being able to state you have a [insert this weeks fashionable number] head angle 🙂Posted 4 years agooxym0r0nSubscriber
I would wait till you get there – have breakfast, get changed, change your tyres for the conditions, have a go on the pump track, look in the shop and have some lunch in the cafe, do an uplift run then change your ha appropriately. Or to save time you could ask someone who has already done the run what your setup should be then tweak it before you ride…Posted 4 years agoscaredypantsSubscriber

How can you set a stem angle or anything else until your sled’s buttery squish and sag have been dialled for the conditions ? I mean, all the stem angle in the world won’t save you if your sus isn’t riding high in its travel without spiking or losing low-speed dampinggreebleMember
Thanks for the gnarinfo to really make the most of my day. Ive decided to take all possible angleset cups with me. Just spoken with the workshop at bikepark wales and they are willing to let me ‘pitstop’. Each run I’ll be changing the headangle. This will all me to find optimum stoke rad factor.Posted 4 years ago
I’ll be compling an XML spreadsheet noting my findings.
Just discovered offset shock bushes…
I hope this will be a benchmark that will really make the trails come aliveIdleJonSubscriber

We’re only 10 mins down the road and have a big box full of head angles, I’ll give you a bulk discount on multiples of 5

What colour head angle? I’d understood every word up until then!Posted 4 years agomaxtorqueMember
In the Alps this summer we had a kind of “Twilight” thing going on (although not quite as gay obviously) between the “murdered out” gothic riders and the old skool Euro-Fluro gang.
Half the group looked like they were ex mountain rescue, the other half were completely invisible when under the trees…….Posted 4 years ago
