    Angleset or similar for 2012 Sortie?

    Wondering if anyone has fitted an angleset or similar headset to slacken out a Sortie. Can't figure it out based on the interwebs.

    check with the diamondback website if your sortie has a tapered headtube. I had the sortie comp 2013 and used a works components angleset ec 44 zs 44 traditional 1 1/8 -1.5 degrees. I got the HA from 70 down to 68 ( measured using Iphone app and my lbs did a little more tinkering). The angleset worked very well and is very stable without any creaking sounds. I had 2 rides in and did downhill with more confidence. The bike felt more stable even though visually, the physical change in the fork angle was minimal.
