Has anyone else noticed slack HT angle feels very awkward at slow speeds? Like doing skinnies or slow teck? Mind you I'm on smaller wheels . I remember my 68 degree bike cruised on skinnes . Less chance of fork wobble caused by slow speed negotiating a narrow log. Track stands and slow trials down hill I swear it's tougher to keep bike stable. Isn't slack for hi speed?
It's possible that 29 inch wheels need slack . Same angles as a DH race bike ?
I'm confused. Or maybe I just suck at riding.
Oh 2003 I had a Giant Warp . 2 inch rear shock . 5 inches rear travel. Marzochi 5 inch fork up front. That was my only bike for years. Rode every trail on the Shore . Loved that bike . Handled perfect . Feels perfect.
Then some fu. Ker stole it. !
Some of us always enjoyed short travel Shore bikes.
29 inch wheels . Long and slack. No thanks.
Not on slow double black teck trails.
Yes to upgrades to vintage bikes ! Glad we have so much variety.
