    Does stanchion size affect head angle when all else is equal?

    On the geometry spec-sheet Yeti lists different head angles for the 32 and 34 stanchion forks at the same length. Specifically they state that a 32 stanchion 150mm travel fork results in a 67 degree head angle while a 34 stanchion 150mm travel fork results in a 66.7 degree angle...

    What gives?...

    Right! ...because different forks use different crowns, which affects the axle to crown distance.

    Which means 34 has an A-C that is about 5mm longer.

    ninjo, the difference is not directly because of the larger diameter stanchions but other design differences.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
