I find it hard to trust him, to be perfectly honest that suspension action got
better by just mounting uppers with less offset. How come? If we focus solely
on suspension action can get better if you adjust the head angle accordingly
to the speed you ride, as the angle of most forces coming at the bike should
match the head angle as closely as possible. Then the shorter the offset of
the wheel axle to the plane of sliders, the smoother it will be, since the
fork would work best if the axle was in line with sliders - That would mean
some humongous CSU assembly. He got the fork serviced and setup properly,
that's my guess… manufacturers increase offset because it allows for
relatively good handling at a wider range of speeds. If you do it just with
head angle with smaller offsets you have to be more precise whether you are
bombing down Garbanzo or climbing a tight singletrack. Can't have both when
you can't climb well. And most people can't since they are told to spin 90RPM
out of the saddle at all times because some science.
