    650b TRc: did you use an angle-set?

    Putting 650b's in a TRc raises the BB height, and I want to keep some of that "slot car" feel. Has anyone used an angleset or works engineering headset to drop the BB? Obviously slackening the front is the main purpose, but a 1 deg change up front will lower the BB 6mm.....pretty close to where it was stock. Thinking this may be a total money set up but would love to know if anyone tried this or not.

    If you not already own a TRC, might a Bronson not be the logical consequence?

    Not meant to mock. The idea sounds great.
    Perhaps someone will chime in?

    Ok excuse me then

    Totally viable mod then. Improving something you already own is cool.
    Although I can not add any actual experience with this specific matter, I approve! ;-)

    Slacker HA is good idea anyway, but I think that probably lower part of works comp headset is so high, that it will rise your BB. Atleast in my BLT2 this happened. As correction you can put burgtec off-set pushing to shock. Or maybe you put burgtec straight in and that's it if you don't need really slack HA.
