    Default To those who paid attention during maths...

    If I have a bike with a 65.6 degree head angle and wheelbase of 1184mm and I slacken the head angle to 65.0 degrees - what will the new wheelbase be?

    If you are installing an angleset, about 10mm.
    If you're installing longer forks to achieve that, then add about 3mm per 20 of extra travel

    Let us know when you measure it then.
    The 10mm is close for the front end, just can't figure the effect offset bushings would have on the rear (if any)

    Remove the rear shock pivot, drop the bike down the same amount the offset bushes would have and measure the wheelbase.

    Point being, you're going to do it. And it's going to be pretty minimal. Why the need to know?
