    Heckler: Fork Travel vs Head Angle

    Hi Folks & Bro,
    I just was wondering 'what happen to my Heckler if I drop fork travel?'. So I did a bit of trigonometry for Heckler 2012 with 150mm travel Sektor RL and results are:
    Fork Travel, mm HT Angle ST Angle Change in Handlebar Height,mm BB,mm
    150 67.5 72 0 350.5
    140 68 72.5 -7.3 343
    130 68.4 73.1 -14.8 338
    100 69.8 74.3 -37.5 326

    My guess would be its going to start getting pretty sensitive to steering input. Do you want to go all the way down to 100mm?

    I have the dual coil Sektor on my 2005 frame. Recently acquired, I'm still struck by the way it let's me hold a line at 130mm. 150mm is a different story, perhaps because I tend to have the fork more wide open downhill but on level traverses, it does not point as well.
