Short answer, No. Long answer, I did for a second when I still had the Revelation fork that the bike (2015 Honzo picked up on the cheap 2 years ago) came with. That fork was never meant for a rider like me (short, angry-bear-like cinder-block shaped creep) and I was out riding (flexed like cray) it rapidly. I ordered a -1 headset and rode it like that for all of a few rides before a Lyrik that had been cut too short (but worked for me just barely) fell into my lap. The bike now sits with a 66 degree head angle and I'd would prefer it down below 65 at least like my full suspension rig has ('17 Evil Wreckoning with a -1 headset). I adore the Honzo, but it's handling is far less forgiving of my less than stellar skill set. I may at some point pony up for a new set of Lyrik uppers to have room for a -2 headset, but I've kept everything on the low budget side of things and as such have trouble pulling the trigger on doing this. More than you wanted to know I'm sure. BTW, that Waltworks is badass even though riding something like that on the N Shore would probably kill me. Walt repaired a busted Surly frame of mine for a few bucks and some local beers. Maybe one day when I grow up I'll have him do something custom for me.
