    That is the perfect fork for that frame, IMO.

    Intresting, thought they where spec'd with a 160 fork? How much would that theoretically slacken the head tube?

    Titus was designed by/for leg-shaved, lycra-clad, mangina born little boys that cried and whined whenever a head angle decreased below 74.5 degrees. A little extra slackening couldn't hurt in this application.

    In my opinion of course.

    BTW, 10mm would be less than .5 degree.

    And if that doesn't work, then just slap a 10mm spacer under the air piston of the Solo Air and Voila! you have a "proper" 160mm fork on your EG. Remove for hairy days.

    Heck... actually you could insert a spacer of 70mm and run it at 100mm travel and get that sweet 74.5 degree angle you've always dreamed of. No joke.

    Lyrik Solo Air is a no-brainer on the EG. Unless you prefer Coil. Then a Coil U-Turn.
