Ya, it's really nice to use... one thing I've learned by playing around and figuring things out for my wife's bike I'm building from a 2015 Kona Precept DL + various parts... is that by adding 10mm of travel along with a -1.5 degree angle set, you pretty much preserve most of a bikes original geometry.  You end up with about a 2 degrees slacker HA, plus a longer wheelbase while you pretty much preserve your reach, stack, SA & bottom bracket height.  It's the ultimate upgrade to keep older bikes going (or adjust newer ones)... want that slacker head angle, longer wheel base and more travel?  But don't want to shorten what is most likely a shorter reach than most "modern" bikes as well as slacken their SA and increase stack?  Works great. The only thing I wish you could buy is an angle set that also provides reach adjust.  Right now it's one or the other... not sure if putting them together would even be possible??
