Thanks for your comments Iboc, It actually complements what i was thinking.
In the original build sheet they have Fox fork, that is little bit longer than the WB fork i have..
Also, i thought about running slightly shorter stem than 110mm suggested.. what would speed the steering back up
I dont know. It probably wont be big deal since its just 1 deg.. Now the biggest reason against it is that this WORKS headset doesnt come in green :D

Whatever you do, style police insists the headset and seat clamp colours match :wink:

Fox fork and WB A-C length you should really compare after sag at the ride height. Depending on the damper spec you may be able to control sag and ride higher up in the travel. If the terrain suits that style of course, but it would certainly help prevent pedal strikes too.

Enjoy!!
