DW (or others who have experience riding these bikes) ,

I am looking to buy the Bakuto (mid level parts spec) and will be swapping out the Splice for an '05 z1 fr1. I like the way the geometry feels with a 125mm fork, I have ridden my friend's several times on the trail. However, I really like slack bikes so I am thinking that a 150mm fork would feel great. I tried out the Waka-Gashira line, which comes with the 150mm Stance Flow, in the parking lot and if felt okay. Just wanted to get another opinion on how the bike will ride. Thanks.

looking for classic NE singletrack
Well, I'm riding one of those frames with a 150mm Sherman on it, think the HA comes out to about 67.5 or so (just measured, its 67.6 exactly). bb height with 2.5s is a shade over 13.

shoot me a PM if you have any other questions.
