So i'm building a custom giant faith and I'm pretty much set on making it a dedicated DH/Freeride and park bike. I have most of the parts so far and I'm "pretty sure" I'm going to put an RS Boxxer up front but my question to you guys is:

I was thinking about putting a WORKS HEADSET on there with a 2 degree angle on it to rake out the headangle so it will handle better for DH type stuff. Do you think this will take away from any of the great characteristics it already has or only improve it??? Please let me know what you guys think, I have never run an angleset before...

Don't listen to your mother. Slacker is better.

Should I do 1.5 degree or go for the full 2 degree angleset??

What is the stock angle with the Boxxer? I like super slack. My DH bike is 62 deg.

Dammm that is slack!!! lol The stock Head angle with a Totem (not sure if adding a boxxer would change it at all) is 66.7.....

Them World Cuppers are doing it. I'd say go the full two degrees to 64.7. But then, I'm biased.
