I have a 2000 Jekyll 3000SX with the attitude adjustment rear shock set up. By loosening a large jam nut I can move a threaded adjuster on the rear shock body that will change the angle of the whole bike.
Since I don't know what that adjustment will do to handling, I chose to set the shock about midway on the adjustment and ride the bike.
Question: if moving it one way raises the rear and increases the head angle and moving it the other lowers the rear and decreases the head angle (or did I get that backwards) the question I have is which way do I want to go on head angle to get more stability when riding?
Right now it is fine on flat technical stuff and going up-hill there is a small tendency for the front tire to come off the ground hard peddling, but it is going downhill where its 'whoa stop-stop-stop' because it 'feels' rather twitchy.
