    Slacker V2 Covert (Angleset or Offset Bushings)

    I've got the V2 covert that doesn't accept the angleset so i'm looking at offset bushings. Anyone run any or have an angleset? How do you like your low & slack covert?

    Any feedback is appreciated.

    Slacker V2 Covert (Angleset or Offset Bushings)

    I have the offset bushings and they work well. I moved out of the mountains last year and wanted to lighten up the bike. I went from fox 36 (160mm) to RS Revelation (150mm). A2C is a good bit shorter on RS and it steepened the HA too much for my taste. The bushings put it back in the 67* range. I did have to adjust the air and settings on my pushed RP23. I do notice a little more 'action' while climbing, but for me its about going down.

    I moved back to Tahoe already and will put a 160 fork back on it, but the bushings will stay for around a 66 HA*.

    I'll make sure to double check the air settings - makes sense that the leverage ratio would increase as it's effectively deeper in the travel. Any chance you've ridden with the 160 on there yet? how's it ride all slacked out?

    I've ordered a set of bushings myself. Stoked to see how it'll ride.

    Not yet with 160. Snow is here and bike is parked for the winter.

    Try looking here for more options. You'll have to remove the fork to take some measurements. I put one on my Blur - works great. They have **** customer service however. Don't answer emails and tracking doesn't update but delivery to the states only took a week and a half.

    CRAP... I'm in the wrong gear
