    Rev 150 on '08 Guapo

    Hey Everyone,


    I have my old '08 frame lying around and considering building it up with the parts that are currently on my 5 Spot. Current Geometry on the Spot being a HTA of 68.5 and STA of 72.5.

    My thoughts are that I could throw my parts back over to the Guapo with the fork being a RS Revelation RLT Ti 150 and get the same geometry that i have right now, but have a much burlier bike. HTA on the Guapo with a 160mm fork is 68 degrees, and the STA is 71.5 degrees. Any ideas what i would get with the Rev?

    Thoughts, opinions?

    Thanks

    Finally heard back from Titus and this it what they said:
    "hi Dusty,
    The 150mm fork will work great. It will lower your BB 10mm, take the head tube to about 69-69.5 and the seat tube to 72.5-73.

    I hope that helps some!
