Why take it out? Wouldn't it be better with the extention because of the size of the wheel?
With the bigger wheel it lifts the front of the bike... 23" wheel is 2" bigger diameter than stock so it would lift the front of the bike approximately 1" higher than stock depending on tire.

26" wheel is 5" bigger diameter than stock so would raise the front of the bike approximately 2.5" higher than stock depending on tire.

So with a 26" wheel and 3" extensions on stock trees it would lift the front of the bike approximately 3.5" higher than stock. So you really don't need extensions.

So being a newby with rake/trail... what are ideal numbers for trail with a 23 and 26 respectively? Front will be a bit for me as I'm doing air and bags first but I want my Sabre to be pretty stretched out but still rideable and handle/corner well. I've read different "ideal" numbers from lots of websites, so whats the consensus here?

Mmasac,
Did you go with 8* or 10* triple trees to go with your 23" wheel?
Also what length extensions did you go with or what would suggest?
