Also - what's your thoughts on going even shorter on the eye to eye?
The best info & pics I have are in that other thread.
Angles depend so much on your fork, the geometry Turner has published seem to be based off of a short fork and skinny tires. I'd guess my head angle to be near 67 and the BB is 14.125". (was 14.5" with the stock shock & same tires & fork).
Pedal strikes have never been an issue for me. I have changed my technique as I've come too appreciate lower BB's. Also our trails tend to be steep & smooth, not a lot of big rock here.
I do feel like lower & slacker generally makes climbing more work.. oh well!
lastly, Craig at avalanche mentioned he didn't think you could go any shorter than 7.75" without also reducing the stroke& travel, otherwise metal-on-metal contact might be an issue. I'm definitely curious to hear airwrecks & shaheebs reports on 7.5x2.0.
