How do the new forks work mate? They seem to slacken the head angle a bit as seem longer than the old drop offs?

Looks neat mate.

The frame was designed for 150mm forks, so the 170mm is slightly out....

I was told that plenty had ran 170/180mm forks and never had issues though, and as it was out of warranty it didnt matter for that.

The bike handles really well, its only used for DH/Freeride anyway so a slack head angle is ideal!

Yeah didnt think it was a bad thing, just you can see it will handle differently.

Very nice, and so much better than the blue incarnation.

How is the Superstar chainguide to fit & install?

You won't be disappointed! I've had no issues at all! Set up was a little trial and error, but once sorted it's perfect.

Noisy at first but will wear in after a short while.

How easy was it to fit bud?

Just remove the BB and then place it between the frame and driveside BB cup?

Cheers
