Correct, because we weren't speaking in measurements. The only numbers referenced in this thread were involved with Scrod and his beard and Scrod's beard frightens me a little.

Edit: just reread the thread and saw that you referenced a 2mm change. But I'm still a little frightened by Scrod's beard.

Assuming a 73 degree head tube angle (because non was given) and a 45mm rake, a 2mm increase in axel to crown would change the trail from 54mm to 55mm. I would suspect that no one would notice that diffence but it would increase the trail, thus refer back to my earlier post.
I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
