Do many of you guys/gals use a slackening headset? Currently run a 140mm Fox 34 on my first generation Chromag Rootdown (68-degree hta.) I am contemplating a 150 or even 160mm Pike and maybe slackening the head angle a further degree with a slackening headset. What brands are the better choices for this kind of thing?
I'm also thinking about getting a wider front rim and running a 29x2.8 Minion DHF. Would this necessitate getting a fork with Boost spacing?
