Wolf Tooth just announced a nifty work around for geometry correction – two different lower headset cups that offer a +10mm increase in height, which should roughly translate to a 3mm increase at the bottom bracket height and a .5º increase in head angle. You can scope their fitment guide here to see if it will work for you. Find the rest of the info in the press release below…

[Press Release] – If you’ve been following Wolf Tooth for the past few years (or even the past few months), you know that we enjoy finding options that allow you to do more with your current bike. It’s just what we engineers do and we can’t really turn it off. The latest options we have are lower headset extenders, which are compatible with most EC and ZS headsets.

The need for a lower headset extender can come down to a desired change in bike geometry. A lower headset extender can be used to increase bottom bracket height and slack the head tube angle, which improves stability on descents and at high speeds. This is helpful for getting rad, sending it, shredding, etc.

A lower headset extender can also help you keep your geometry the same. Say you’re riding a suspension-corrected frame, but you want to ride it with a rigid fork instead of a suspension fork. The addition of lower headset extender with your new rigid fork would allow you to keep the same geometry. See, options that allow you to do more with your current bike.
