Andrew I'm very intrigued by that Wolftooth -1 headset setup. I'm running an Ohlins RXF36 m.2 up front which is a lovely fork, but has a long A2C height compared to others on the market, so the slacker HA bringing the front end height down ever so slightly wouldn't be a bad thing. I also feel like the bike could do with a slightly slacker head angle for the very steep trails I'm often riding, as you suggest. I'm struggling to understand how the Wolftooth headset increases reach, though - wouldn't a slacker head angle shorten the reach slightly by bringing the top of the steerer tube back toward the rider? Let me know if you have any other reflections on that headset change, I'm seriously considering giving it a go!
