I could recommend a reverse 10mm crown spacer but, without seeing or knowing what's causing the issue that could just have the same problem. So, all you've changed is the fork?

Thanks, I think that's going to be the first step, my assumption was that the headset would be a fixed size and therefore a new one wouldn't do much for me.

I'll pull the bearings and get some measurements see if there's a taller one that can be dropped in there.

Agreed would rather not make a shim as it may not let the race sit properly on the flares portion...

Yup 2011 reba to a 2018 pike, both tapered, figured this would be an easy swap....

Well there is your problem, assuming it would be an easy swap obviously precipitated this conundrum. At least that's how it always works for me.

No way to answer that wo knowing your bikes kinematics.

Try inputting your details into one of the many spring calculators online. That's all you’re now asking someone on here to do for you.

Different bike will have different suspension kinematics. If you put the shock and travel dimensions of the 2012 flatline into a calculator, what results do you get?

I'm trying to hunt down a BB tool for my 30mm Nukeproof BB which needs a 16 notch 49mm OD socket

So far the best I can find is a £40 Park Tool BBT-27.3 which seems a bit steep

Anyone know of a decent alternative that's in stock? Google is coming up blank for me so far!

What bottom bracket does it have on it?

Sorry, didn’t realize they made a bottom bracket, disregard my foolish question

Abbey tools is only 35$ For equal money I’d get the shiny green one over the blue junk.
I believe raceface is also the same 49od 16t tool.

Raceface is not the same.
