Question for someone that can calculate trail.

What would the trail be running this setup? 8 degree trees, 3" extenders and a 23" wheel?? I would have to think the trail numbers would be much better than running a 21".

Remember, this calculator does NOT take into account the change in neck rake when the front/back of the bike is raised/lowered in any way.

Rowdy,
What did they say the rake will be with what you are changing on your bike??
The stock rake is 3.6 inches, and in my opinion, I would not feel comfortable having a rake any smaller than that on my bike.

If you would, please post some pics when you get the 23 inch wheel and tire mounted . I am interested in doing the same thing.

Re: Question for someone that can calculate trail.

Not the best pic, but this is 10 degree with 2" extenders.
