    Nomad 2 geometry tweaks

    I am trying to refresh the geometry in my old nomad c (version2). It needs a new headset so am thinking of an angleset. What have people used and what works well? I was thinking -1 at least (if a can fit one with the tapered stearer 36 forks I have). I am wanting it to feel more like the long/low/slack of the new one

    Will your fork take a 27.5" wheel with a reasonable tire on it? If so that will also slacken the N MK2 out a bit and give it some of the roll over of the bigger N MK3 wheel.

    When I have to buy my N MK2 a new fork I was thinking I may try that. Assuming I can kill the 2008/09 Fox 36 RC2 I've got on it.
    Safe riding,

    A taller fork/wheel would raise the BB and slacken the seat tube angle on a bike with a tallish bb and slack STA. I'd go with the -1 headset from works components and stay with a 26 160 fork.

    Agreed. A Fox 36 will take some 650B wheels/tyres if the tread is not too aggresive, e.g. Maxxis Ardent.
