Very tasty - I have always fancied one of these after seeing reviews in the mags around 2009- but from memory the head angle is too steep for me.

I found out on my trek EX that I am not qualified to handle racy 70deg+ head angles!

69deg and below and I am fine.

do any techies know if we can slacken an SC-SL by fitting, say, 160mm forks?

best way to slacken the ht angle would be with an angled headset

Cheers - how do they work - do you have line up the cups precisely when fitting?

best ones here https://www.canecreek.com/product/angleset/

plenty of videos showing them being fitted. Pretty straight forward.

Anyway, enough thread hijacking, i am eager to see the frame with some of these nice parts hanging off :)
