All depends on where you Look .. googled " suspension corrected mountain bike forks "
and this is the result

https://www.google.com/search?q=susp...hrome&ie=UTF-8


a really long steerer tube with a machined spacer between the fork crown race and the actual crown race seat on the fork

will also keep the head-tube up as high as it was when the suspension fork is in place.


Just wondering how the geometry would slide up or if it might be uneven.
common sense and mathematics : an arc with the center axis the rear wheel axle.

the drop from A to B in the front can be calculated if you know, measure , the distance to the Rear axis to the head tube center line,

and the distance the drop is, can be known ..

that changes to the Trail , a distance laid out on the ground plane ,
depends on the chosen fork's tip axis to crown race seat and the rake/offset of the dropout tip/axle center ..to the steerer center..

what it may feel like is an Opinion.
