you wont really notice it untill your on the front wheel man, maybe in airs but i dunno i cant do them, sucks jarrod isnt on here anymore cause he would be able to tell ya, get yeah you will notice it in nose mannys, footjams, anything front wheel based, but just riding ? wont notice it man, and if you do, you will get used to it in like 2 days lolol

i love it :D
i ride trails with my lacey and it feels good, the head angle just feels so nice, you don't actually have to consciously steer, you just have to think you wanna go somewhere and it turns, but it's not twitchy
i get on people's bikes with slacker head angles now and it feels so sluggish
great for nosemanuals and footjams and tricks like g-turns or nosemanual 180s
it's fine for airs too
only thing is that it's easier to go over the bars tongue

if in doubt, keep pedalling
