    Angleset for 120mm TB

    Does it make sense to reduce HTA on an XC travel bike as riders in the TBLT threads have done on that bike?

    I have a Jamis 650b 130 mm trail bike I reduced from 69* to 67.5* with Works Components headset and like it overall. But, there are times when the front wheel can wander climbing. If there's one thing I DON'T want to mess up on the TB it's climbing. If I only did 1* on TB, I wonder how noticeable it would be and whether it would be worth the coin and effort.

    Comments/advice? Thx

    Edit: stupidly put wrong angles in first post. DOH!

    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.
