Okay so right now I am running a 75.3 headtube with 25mm forks and it feels so good. But I'm getting a new frame soon with 75.5 and sticking with my 25mm forks. Will I notice a major difference? When switching from 32mm to 25mm I noticed I slight difference that felt very good. How does 75.3 to 75.5 compare to 75.3 with 32mm to 75.3 with 25mm?

Just enlighten me with all your headtube angle knowledge lol. I know basics of it such as 74 being mellow and 76 being steep. But what will headtube angle effect as far as riding goes. Nosemanuals obviously like steeper forks do but will headtube angle affect anything else.

It will make the front end feel more responsive, and make your effective toptube slightly longer. Probably not enough for you to notice a significant difference, but if you don't like it, just angle your bars back a touch
