'Lean forward' relative to the previous angle.Excaliburke said:Wow, this is impressive! I had no idea it leaned *forward*.
Short answer is "No" but it depends on what one means by "compensate".Excaliburke said:Out of curiosity, is it possible to use the shock to compensate for a 395mm fork in some way?
I figure installing the 395 mm air fork will increase the steerer tube angle from 30 to a bit under 34 degrees and increase the height of the crown above the ground by about 4 inches. In theory one could use a longer shock to increase the height of the back end an equal amount. However it would not restore the original steerer tube angle of 30 degrees (or the length of the trail).
You might want to have a look at my previous thread.
Toward the end there is a discussion of the effects on the bicycle handling with the 395 mm air fork.
