Aha fair enough!

I don’t think it’s misleading, it’s likely to be maths. As the front triangle leans back to get slacker, the (horizontal) reach shortens. Meanwhile the slackening of the head angle means the front wheel gets placed further out, and so it’s probably this that means the wheelbase doesn’t change much.

To answer your last question: IXS Flow provide all day comfort and absorb impacts nicely. Also great when kneeling to tie laces. A benefit similar to dropping a post when reaching a gate. Who knew?

Over-Forking The North Shore - May 22, 2020, 2:05 a.m.

As with most things in our balance sport of Bike, my experience is that the sweet spot is usually in a narrow range. Went from 160 to 170 fork once on a full suss and the 160 was amazing, 170 awful. I’ve a hard tail that’s ‘meh’ at 140 and ‘yeah’ at 160. It’s well worth experimenting and a great editorial  :)

Haha happy to oblige! Ask and you shall receive. In order then: EU45; mountain biking both up and down, generally as steeply as I’m able; 74deg.

I like how you’ve introduced it as a discussion point. It’s got me thinking about foot position vs seat angle for sure.

Seeing as you asked: I run the cleats under the ball of my foot, comfortably into the forward 50% of the cleat slot of my Shimano shoes
