    it changes about .6 degree per 10mm. BB height goes up about 1/2 the change in A-C all else being the same.

    I have about 10 rides on my SL with a new Float 150. I came off the Talas 140 and the first two rides were an adjustment. Now I feel great on the 150 and am glad I made the change.
    Vote with your feet.

    All things being equal, the fork might be 20mm longer, however when sagged (and allowing for the fork rake) it is probably only 10-12mm longer.

    This is about 0.6-0.7 degree slacker, a noticable but not huge increase in stability.

    If you want the same weight on the front as the shorter fork, you could remove some stem spacers, flip the stem itself or use a flatter bar.

    The BB will rise about 40% of the height, which under normal riding would be roughly 0.2" or 5mm. This might be noticable for you? As the mojo has a lowish BB this would still place the BB height withing a very common range.

    Heaps of people ride Mojos with 150 forks..

    Head angle with 150mm fork? Still 1/2 a degree too steep.
