Hello. I was looking at the SC geometry tables and found that they are a little confusing because they use 515mm, 529mm and 545mm axel to crown lengths, I found and online geo calculator ( geometryCalc ) and came to this numbers, Im considering Blur LT, Heckler, Butcher and Nomad all in size M that are bikes that can be used with 150 32mm forks and 160 36mm forks and using 529mm and 545mm axel to crown lengths:

Bike.........web HA......web SA.....529 HA.....529 SA.....545 HA.....545 SA
Blur LT......68.1...........71.5.........68.1..........71.5.........67.3..........70.7
Heckler......69.............72............68.3..........71.3.........67.5..........70.6
Butcher......67.5..........72............67.5..........72............66.7..........71.2
Nomad.......67.............71.5.........67.7..........72.2.........67.............71.5

So.... what does it means??? that there is less than 1 degree of difference between the 4 bikes, I think that it would be almost imposible to notice the difference and SC has very clear what geo they want on their bikes and the butcher is even slacker than the nomad.

It would be interesting to hear from anyone who has ridden a BLT with 160mm forks (545 A/C) and a Nomad. On the BLT, the HA is 0.3 degrees steeper but the SA is 0.8 degrees slacker. The chainstays are shorter too so I would guess the Nomad climbs better than the BLT and still feels more stable downhill, but interesting to hear from someone who knows. (I have a BLT with 140mm Rev's and am considering 160mm Lyrics)
