    AngleSet to replace headset on 2018 Scott Scale 925

    Hi all,

    I've researched this to death and fear the answer is "not possible" but thought I'd ask the pros' here.

    I really want to slacken my headset angle by 1-2 degrees (preferably the latter). The problem is, works and crank don't do anything that will fit. The headtube is 115mm long, 42mm/52mm with integrated headset.
    Headset angle is currently 69, reckon the bike would be perfect with 2 degrees less and drop post fitted.
    Anyone know of any way round this?

    Cheers

    Longer fork is your only way.
    Or maybe short-shocking the rear.
    Please donít post in multiple places.

    Well you can wait for the update rumor has coming as a 2020. Hopefully geo and tire clearance like the non RC Sparks.

    I've sent them an email and message through their web service, but they didn't respond.

    Shame.. it's a hardtail and i'm a bit loath to change the forks which will change the seat angle as well. Thanks

    What are the rumours saying? I was thinking of possibly updating the Scott to a Santa Cruz Chameleon C if unable to tweek to perfection 😂 though I doubt my wallet would stretch that far.
