    Also how much will it steepen the head angle by if I use a 150mm fork?

    I have trouble finding a used 160mm

    Thanks

    Can't tell you what year but regarding fork I would say try to find a 160mm. The frame deserves the befier fork. I ran a revelation on my bandit and it was great but it sometimes flexed too much. Change the frame and fork to a Covert and Lyrik instead. I would say that the covert is much stiffer and needs that stiffer front end.

    Your bike is a V2.5... it is from an era before we had model years. Jeez... I think a 2011? But my memory is failing me.

    A 150mm 36 series fork would change the HA by about 1/4 degree, maybe as much as 1/3 degree at most. But a 150mm 32 series fork could be closer to 1/2 degree (lower profile crown on those forks).

    But either way... definitely not a problem to run any 150mm fork on there.
