Video: Proven Here - The Kootenays SB6C
I could watch Graves rip dirty trails all day long and the footage was real nice. If this edit had no music it would be way better though. Garbage music.

Could have just cut out the whole strava business and had a nice little riding edit...

Yes! Also if I search in (Chain rings, Bash guards, Chain guides etc.), I should be able then narrow my search to chain rings. This would save a whole bunch of wading through crap.

Maple is everything, literally. They have a climbing trail that is actually super fun. It currently goes half way up, and they are currently plotting it in to the top. Wicked view at the top. The descent is everything: Techy DH, beautiful woodwork, natural flow, a few hard grunts to connect all the good spots on the mountain and some bermed pump-n-flow. Gets a bit XC at the bottom, but even that is very flowy and fun. Typically a 2.5-3hr tour. Do it! Dropper helps.

Actually the community has a donation box. If you don't dig, I'm sure everyone involved would be more than happy if you ride-donate-ride some more...

It's a small village roughly half way up Vancouver Island. It was a mining town beginning in 1888. I've been to a lot of riding communities out here in BC, but never seen a place that is so catered toward mountain biking. One of the most friendly places I've been as well. Not to mention you can usually still find trails to ride in the dead of winter. Go there. Full stop.

Ask Pinkbike: Rim Width, Angle Headsets, and Carbon Cranks
finnrambo, that fork will raise up your front end a bit compared to the 160mm fork. The difference in HA is probably less than 1/2 a degree to the slack side so you won't change it that much. I guess the question is whether you want a slacker bike. If you do, and you added and angle set, it would add some height to your front end. That would be on top of your increase in height from your fork. So keep in mind, if you want a slacker bike, it costs you a bit of stack below your head tube.

Also, I wouldn't worry about the change affecting your Seat tube angle and BB height. The difference in the height of your front end won't change by much when raking out your fork by a couple degrees. Also, when you add a thick lower head set cup to a head tube that is designed to be internal, you are just raising that height back up by around 8mm or so. Food for thought...
