The main reason I went with the 36 was to slacken the head angle although the stiffer fork is nice on the fast chunky stuff.Great info. Would any of you have any suggestions to have the bike shop look at and take care of before I pick it up?
I’m also debating to have them swap out the 34 140 for a 36 GRIP2 150 but that’s a $1000 up-charge. They suggested Nows a great time to sell parts but that a huge risk.
For me I knew I didn’t want a HT angle steeper than 66 and loved my last bike at 65.5.
If you think the 34 has the characteristics that you want but still want the steeper HT angle then put on an angleset. That ‘a what I did on my last bike (67 to 65.5) and it completely transformed that bike. Check out Works Components anglesets. Unless you are comfortable installing headsets I’d have a shop do it.
