    Angleset on a RFX anyone?

    Looks like the max I can get is 1 degree slacker with the 1 1/8 headtube. That would take me to 67 degrees for an all-mountain, light-freeride bike which is still considered by many on the steep side of the chart. It's a bit of a pricey experiment but I think I'll give it a go if no one else has and hated it.

    It's not like I've ever caught myself wishing I had a slacker head angle but you never know until you try, right? I have caught myself wishing for a lower bottom bracket but there's not much that can be done about that without changing the rear shock but I'm totally digging the RS Monarch Plus on there right now.

    Offset shock eyelets (the holes) is another option. Haven't done this myself but plenty of people have.

    Thanks. I'll look it up. Not sure I would want to toss the RWC needle bearing I have. I remember noticing a big difference when I first installed it.

    What size is your frame? I have an extra saar -1.5 angleset cups for a small frame.

    Did you see this?? Perhaps it will work on a large RFX.

    TwoPump, sent you a PM. I have a Works 1 degree that should work for you off my Spot. It was on there for one season, bearings are great.

    The works headset for sale is the wrong size for my headtube length. I ended up ordering the angleset. I'll let you all know how it works out. Thanks!
