Mountain Biking UK - - LONG-TERM RIDES -

It’s been a busy month for me, with a trip to the Alps to ride Hope’s bike (see p32) and some test time on a va­ri­ety of other ma­chines as well. This means I’ve not had much time aboard the G16. Still, af­ter for­ever go­ing on about tweak­ing the head an­gle, I’m fi­nally about to fit a Works Com­po­nents an­gled head­set. I’ve gone for the one-de­gree op­tion and – to be­gin with, at least – plan on us­ing it to steepen, not slacken, the head an­gle. Right now, with a 170mm Fox 36 in place, the G16’s head an­gle is a shade un­der 63 de­grees.
