    Jet rdo headtube angelset

    Hi All,

    I want to reduce the headtube angle to 70 instead of 71.5 in the front(cane creek angelset ,offset of 1.5).

    My propose is to increase confidence when going down by reduce the headtube angel and reduce BB hight for better stability.

    Did someone do this change?how the bike behave while climb a steep technical climb?for long XC/epic ride?

    Thx

    Not possible with the Jet 9 RDO. It has an integrated headset.

    Actually, many early Jet 9 RDO's were built to use press-fit cups. We have one in the stable with a Works headset and a Fox 34 lowered to 120 mm to make it an aggressive trail slayer for the wifey. I've ridden it a couple times and it's a real weapon in this form. BTW, the Works headset is easier to setup, lower stack height and less maintenance than the Angleset.

    Here's a pic with the Works headset but before we swapped the Reba for a 34 -

    Sorry, I forgot that the v1.0 had a zero stack setup. The 1.1 and 1.2 version are integrated.

    Look down where the fork crown and the frame meet. If you see an aluminum bezel, you have a v1.0 frame. If there is just carbon between the crown and the frame, you have a v1.1 frame with an integrated headset.

    Here is a picture that should explain the difference visually.



    I think they stopped making v1.0 sometime in 2012, but there could have been stock for a while.
