    New question here. PUSH links...Steeper STA?

    Just curious if the folks with the PUSH links noticed any increase in STA. I already have the seat pushed back on the rails as it is and was thinking a setback might be needed if the STA was tilted forward any. That's my armchair engineering model in my head but what's the real world perception?

    My butt dyno didn't notice any discernible change.

    The change to the seat tube angle is the same as the change to the head tube angle.

    The real point of the Push links is to restore the original Spot geometry experienced with DT's 125 mm Fox fork. With the new 140 mm Fox fork, my Spot was just feeling a bit too much like a chopper. With the links, the original, slightly steeper HA and STA have been restored, and all is good again. Bonus: the slightly higher BB was not noticable until I went to Moab and Fruita, where it was a definite small, but noticable bonus.
