I have a MKIII Large frame. built up with X.9/XO drive train. crossmax xl wheels, thomson parts. Marzocchi All mtn 1. i have the fork setting at the full 6inches. and the head angle still feels too steep. i'm 5'11" 170lbs. all the suspension is setup correctly. i've had it for about 4months now. its only been on 4 rides... i like of the suspension feels front and rear, but the geometry just seems to suck. i use to have a Giant VT 18in frame with the same tt as this. so i thought it was a good swap. i ran a minute 2 on that. the rear shock on the MKIII is a 2inch stroke but is the 7.875 eye to eye. anyone think it would be ok to get a shock that was 7.5 eye to eye to slacken the head angle? thanks. Steve or if not. anyone want to trade frames for something else? the bike is pretty much brand new.
