    A DW Spot 29er made overseas so it's affordable and please get rid of the ugly elevated erector set rear end.

    150mm Spot. At ~68deg with a 150m fork.
    160mm seems too large a step forward for a trail bike. That is going to be using a 150mm 32mm stanction fork for the majority of cases.

    A tough bike, can take any fork, designed minimum around a Lyrik 170 or Totem. 8-9 Pounds (or more with coil options). 1.5

    Just throw a 1.5 headtube on the Spot. If you want slacker, you can have it slacker with the +/- reducers; same if you want it steeper. Slacking out the HT will help lower the BB a tad as well since the fork won't be as vertical, although, truthfully, I can't imagine it would produce significant difference?
