Yes, but I don't want to degrade how the bike pedals. Modifying the offset bushing or the linkage will have a similar but detrimental impact on the seat tube angle as it would the head tube angle, at least when I visualize all of the moving parts in my mind that's how it looks to me. The angleset would be the way to go, but not possible as you have said.
Im going to keep the E29 as is but with the new dropper, and Im going to get an additional bike. Ultimately if it pedals great maybe it becomes the work horse instead of the E29 - who knows. Brain and heart are both saying Slayer to start because its the furthest away from the E29, even though I prefer 29r. But if I found a wicked deal on either an Instinct or an Altitude, I could be swayed to either.
Ill figure it out over the next few weeks. Im looking - an obvious buy hasn't jumped out at me yet.
