I have a new Superfly Elite and it has very slack head angles (which are great!!) but the Superfly 100's have the old 71/74 geometry. I know that NINER has the Fully's and Hardtails still at 71/74 basically. I know the trend (especially with Trail bikes) is now toward a slacker geometry.
The Rumblefish (trail model) for TREK has a slacker angle (than Superfly 100)--but still not as slack as the Superfly Hardtails... I know the magazines reviews 'rave' about the KONA's and other bike models that have Very Slack angles (67 degree head tube)---ALSO I read a review in BIKE (i think) a while back where they actually put longer trail forks (or Angleset's) on the frame to slacken up trail...
So knowing this (and the fact that Superfly Hardtails are soo slack now) I wonder why the Superfly 100's (and even the Rumblefish) are not Slacker?? Because it has made a HUGE difference (to me) on my new Superfly (compared to my G1 Paragon that had 71/74...)
