    2011 5 spots with slacker head angle - opinions?

    Just picked up a 2011 frame. My idea is to get a Works Components 1.5deg headset (zero stack bottom) and run a 535mm A-C fork, which I think would give a 66.5 deg head angle, give or take .1 deg. This would also slightly lower the stock bb and slightly steepen the seat angle. I like the idea of a x-country seat angle and low bb combined with a slack head angle.

    I've read some of you have tried fitting anglesets to your 2011 Spots. Can I hear any opinions on how they changed the handling behavior from the stock geometry?
