    Angleset on a Mojo HD

    Anybody tried it yet? Wondering what a 66 degree HA feels like.

    Pretty sure there was a thread about this....can't do it. Anglesets need a full 1.5 headtube so the steerer can move forward/aft. The taper would allow enough room at the bottom of the HT but not enough on top. Like a 66 HT? Get a Fox 180. Don't know if they make crown races that are taller for these new headsets/steerers. CK makes a few (I think 4mm and 7 mm) for "normal" 1 1/8 headsets/steerers. They were initially made to offer enough clearance for the adjustment knobs on longer travel forks but had the side affect of slacking out the bike as well.

    You can do it you either need a 1.5 headtube or a tapered headtube and you must use an 11/8 fork carry on...

    You can run an Angleset with a tapered steerer, provided your frame has a full 1.5" headtube. ETA for this version of the Angleset is early 2011.

    According to my LBS/ Ibis dealer, it is available now if you have a 11/8 steerer, and just want the 1 degree change. The adjustable one is not available yet.

    I wouldn't mind trying a Fox 180 in the future, or bumping my Lyric up to 170.

    I put my old Totem air 180 mm on mine and the set up feels fine.It climbs well with a 50 mm stem and the suspension balance feels spot on .Cornering balance takes a little practice not to plow the front wheel.

    Went with the 1 degree offset

    She sits at a 66 degree head angle with a 160 mm fork. Took out 1 spacer under stem. Feels pretty nice so far, but haven't gotten to ride it yet. Will report how it ride when take her out again.

    Pictures

    Slopestyle HD

    Has a bit of an industrial look.

    The blingy blue CC110 headset looked a bit nicer. Oh well. It also uses one of those Chris King head locks to hold it all together.

    Perhaps some ride time on it tomorrow.

    Hey Eric - curious what you think after you get some ride time on it. Hope it fixes the handling.

    I called CC last week and they said that they were not shipping yet. So where could I pick one up?

    The bike disributers like QBT and BTI seem to be getting them. I could have gotten either, but went with the 1 degree version.

    I didn't get as good a test as I wanted today because I was getting a nerve wracking clank on every deep compression. I called it a day and went to my shop, who quickly saw to fixing the problem (thanks Cal Coast).

    Be warned those things need to be super tight. We needed to use a CK head lock and really tighten it down.

    As far as the ride so far, I liked it. It's faster and more stable. It's still agile, and still feels like an HD. Cornering takes a bit more technique. I found myself coming into a few corner a bit hot. I don't see it being a problem. I lowered my bars more when I got home. I will withhold full judgement after riding at several gnarly spots and tweaking my cockpit a bit.

    Alturnative to the Cane Creek angleset:

    I had BATM (forum member) make custom angle reducer cups for my Reign X. Very professional work and made specifically for my bike at the angle I wanted. Much cleaner and stealthy looking as well. The weight ended up being the same as a standard Cane Creek headset. Oh, and at the time, he offered to anodize them in blue, but I ended up going with black.

    Send him a pm to see if he is still making them.

    Here's the link to one of his posts:

    dumb question - based on the picture the bottom bearings are inset - wouldn't a basic headset with a taller bottom cup achieve the exact same thing and allow you to run a tapered fork?

    It's pretty cool. There's a notable difference in how the bike feels rolling into abrupt washes and coming down through chunky, rocky, downhills. The bike stays more composed and handles the hits better.

    Excellent remark !
    I wanted to know if scepticshock or jzbig had check the new angle by hand ?

    As I suppose you were running an external down cup at 67, now it's flush with -1 ... so not really sure you get those 66

    BUT ... you certainly dropped you BB by the way & lengthen your wheelbase.

    I don't have my angle measuring do-hicky, but it is slacker then it was with my CC 110 headset. That can be felt quite easily. Would be nice to know the exact number for sure. The bike now has a Havoc 750mm bar and Haven 70mm stem. I like this set up.

    Stay tuned. In the near future I will convert my U-Turn to a 170 DH. So that will make it another half degree slacker!

    I'm pretty well adjusted to the Angleset by now. I don't think I will change it back unless I end up with a 180 fork at some point. It still climbs fine with the travel adjust I have. I have done some pretty tight switchbacks up and down, and it was fine.
