68.5 degrees? what do you think?
My jamis is 68.5 3/4, seems just perfect except on UBER steep climbs -- but I can grunt through those. Just curious what others ride...flyingkiwi said:I like a slack head angle to give better downhill control.
The downside your cornering is slower on tight and very twisty tracks, I can live with that.
I think cross country bikes are 70-71 degrees.Freeride bikes are around 67-68.Most AM is 69. Check the frame geometry as that depends on the fork travel the frame recommended for.
Amazing that there is only a few degrees difference! But combine forks short stem etc to give a different ride.
