    ripley compatible with an angleset? hans?

    Been on my ripley for about a month or so now I have it set up with a 140mm x-fusion trace fork which is pretty awesome.. but have been toying with the idea of an angleset.. Would like to maybe play around with a slacker HA.. or am I pushing the bike to it's limits? I have ridden alot of the same all mountain type of trails with my HD, an now with the ripley.. an on everything, I'm just blowing all my old times on my HD out of the water with the ripley.. Has anyone tried it? or does ibis not recommend it? as I see a few people running the 150mm pikes..

    It will fit and you can compare it.

    It will likely be better on the very steep downs, I don't know if you will like it the rest of the time, that depends on a lot of things, riding style, position on the bike, what you're used to etc.
