What's the rationale behind the 160mm fork when Privateer recommends a 170-180? Does it help the front wheel grip better?

Axle-To-Crown is more important when it comes to geometry. Öhlins forks tend to have a high ATC, for instance the RXF36 160mm ATC is =580mm while the Lyrik 170mm ATC =582mm.
I also like to have balanced travel F & R...

I can't really find a difference in the diameter difference but the quality of the bearings does. Sram bearings are slowing the pulleys like hell and these Garbaruk roll so much better...

Simply because this build was made from the bucks I had after selling my previous Genius frame kit.
I kept what was working or was light/strong enough and bought the rest without burning the budget.
X01 drivetrain had no issues while the AXS dropper doesn't exist in 200mm. The Transfer is trouble-free and without a battery to recharge.

I posted it right after the article about 7 Privateer owners Q&A
Also Vital posted a story about a Privateer project so I guess they have covered enough Privateers for the moment haha
