    HDR headtube angel change? Real or measured with different forks?

    So the new HDR in 160mm/ 26" mode is listed at 67.5.
    The HD is listed at 67. Is this a change or is this the result of the newer Fox 34 160 forks having a lower AC then the old 36 160. If so are the numbers on the "old" HD page incorrect with the newer forks??

    Thanks

    Yes, that's the source of the change. Either way, set up with the same fork in 160 mode, the frame will have the same head angle it had in the past. There was no change there.
