      How much should I be concerned about head tube angle on a fat bike?  Here are the two contenders:

      – Trek Farley: 70 degree angle, 27.5 wheels, 100m travel fork

      – KTM Fat Rat: 69 degree angle, 26 wheels, 80mm travel fork

      Mostly I’m going to be doing technical climbing and slow speed maneuvering on technical trails near my house. The steeper head tube angle may help there, but I’m worried it’s going to make the bike a little too twitchy on faster trails. That said, I have a full suspension 29er for the summer months and when I’m tearing up faster trails.

      Appreciate any feedback!
