if you are sponsored, wouldn't you know?jamip_dh said:ok. thanks. this frame could be used for racing right? because i got the frame for free and would love to use it, im getting the rest of the components from sponsors, etc. so if i had an 888rc2x fork, raceface cranks, E13, deemax wheels, diablous bars, it would be good for racing right?
bare with me here please---the steeper head angle meaning its better for the DH type riding or not better---this degree/angle business always confuses me---thxcoma13 said:mongoose site has it listed as a 68 degree headangle
that's pretty steep.
very helpful--thxnjhcx4xlife said:Generally and I mean generally...a steeper head angle is more suited to FR while a slacker head angle is more suited to DH racing. When I say steep head angle I mean in terms of fr/dh bike, a really steep head angle would be on an xc race bike. The theory is that the slacker head angle is better at high speeds but would be twitchy at slower speeds. 68 degree head angle is more of a FR head angle but if you ride true dh or race it isn't going to explode.
