2019 Transition Sentinel v1 with a coil
RockShox Lyrik Ultimate 170mm. How Will dropping the travel down to 150mm affect head tube angle? .5*? More?

Now why would you want to do that

Steepen the head angle for trail riding, but worried because I still bomb sections. The guys at Transition said 170 and let er rip

i agree with them. i wouldn't mess with a bikes geo by changing fork travel usually but ESPECIALLY if the manufacturer advises against it

Stock was 150. I put the 170 on after talking to the guys at Transition. Just wondering about the difference

If the standard was 150mm and you replaced it with 170mm then you are simply reverting to the manufacturers specifications.

Of more interest when it comes to the actual geometry is the axle to crown measurements and sag. It can be quite surprising the variation for both of those.

It will steepen the HT to 64.5 and steepen the ST a degree depending on your size.
