    Slayer SXC 2010 safe head tube angle headset higher fork

    Hi,
    I wonder how much I could safetly slacken Slayer's headtube.

    Basically SXC 2010 has 68* with Fox 36 Float(fork length 545mm)

    As I read change in 1cm longer fork results in 0,5* degree change of headtube.

    68* @545mm = Fox 36/RS Lyrik
    67* @565mm = 66 RC2/Totem 180mm
    66* @585mm = 888

    Using Slayer with 66*/67* headtube angle will be safe for headtube lifespan?

    Anyone tried Slayer with 180mm fork or angle headset?

    Slayer SXC 2010 safe head tube angle headset higher fork

    I have a 2010 Slayer SXC with a Fox Talus 180 rides amazing. then again my previous bike was a 1994 GT Zaskar LE with a RS Judy with about 55 of travel.

    I'm going for a ride tomorrow i'll try to measure the angle, i only have an inclinometer from my Silva compass so not sure how acurate thats going to be.

    Try to use same fork length with angle set. Higher fork results in higher bb wich could be less stable.
