My biggest concern was that on my previous bike, I tended to wash the front end more than I would have liked. Weather due to geometry (73 HTA 45mm offset) or poor skills, there was a noticeable difference when I test rode a few bikes with different head tube angles. (72 vs 73, same 45mm offset). For some reason when I test rode a bike with the 72* HTA, same tires, same pressure, it just seemed like it drove better. I liked the feeling of the wheel ‘flop’ is all I could describe it as. Of course, I am sure it was all placebo, and us cat 3 world champions are certainly going to feel the difference, and it will be the difference between first and last in the cat 3 world championships I am SURE!
