Where are the Front End Geometry Questions asked?

I'm Newbie and know I might be in the wrong place, but wondering where all the talk about Trail, Head Angle, Offset/Rake, and Flop takes place?

I'm interested in the theory of these various dimensions; ie I enjoy MORE talk about Trail, for example, than, "I prefer longer Trail dimensions when I do this because"..... I want to talk about the actual figures they're using and why; not just "shorter" or "longer".

I'm not against practical answers and people, it's just that I enjoy the theoretical part, too.

thx,

Euphie : )

Thank you; that looks inviting; And I apologize to Julia who had previously responded to the same question in another area but I missed the response because I don't know how to get a notice in my email that a response has been posted.......... is it possible? is it in my profile? I must be missing it, or it doesn't exist?

thx,
