    Forks

    This is probably a kinda dumb question but here goes anyway....

    Is there an optimum amount of rake for a fork?

    If so how and where do you measure it (with home type tools)?

    What is the difference in handling if the distance is more or less?

    Ok thats 3 kinda dumb questions

    There are no dumb questions, only dumb answers. Rake makes a huge difference. Here are a couple links:
