Cool, they look a bit better than the old ones. But holy headset spacers! Have you tried running you're bars a bit lower? It'll help you put more of you're weight over the front wheel giving you more grip in the corners, as at the moment you must be riding bolt upright. Bet you find it easy to wheely lol.

It's something I've never given any thought to. I didn't even know they were spacers till I took the old forks off and as it's my first MTB I've never known any different.

I s'pose as I don't know any different it's just what I've gotten used to so probably won't change it now that it'd mean cutting them again.

My plan is to wait 4 'n' a bit months till I can get a new bike, then swap out the Rockshox from this bike onto my son's GT Aggressor, then take the really crap SR Suntours from his bike (Which already have a shorter steering stem) and putting them on this Trek and just using it as spare/hybrid/family trail type bike.

And no ... I'm crap at wheelies LOL

All you need to do is swap on of the spacers from under the stem to on top of it..no need to cut anything but it would be worth while doing as it's only a five min job

Start with it as low as it'll go and experiment from there. I guarantee you will find cornering much better.

I might be being stoopid but If I change the pos'n of the spacers will I need to re adjust the remote lockout cable?

Nope no need to move it. When you've sorted you're bar height, we'll move on to stem length Wink
