I like the handling of my 17 Anthem X Adv 29er with a 120 mm fork. I am guessing the head angle as been slackened by 1 deg. Has anybody installed an angle adjustable headset on an older Anthem X? Did it work ok? Is it a good idea? I am only looking to slacken the head angle another 0.5 to 1.5 deg.

Yes. Just need to find the right size to go in the frame.

Just wondering if anybody has ever done this to their Anthem X Advanced 29er? Which headset and how many degrees did you install?

After adding a 120 mm fork, I don't think I will slacken the head angle too much with a headset since this bike has a 90 mm stem. Newer long slack bikes have stems 35-50 mm. Long stem = slower steering.
