70mm rake with 45mm trail?

Ordered a frame. Just got the option of having 70mm bend put into the fork. This will be with a 71.5 degree angle.
That should equal 45mm trail or maybe more as the short frame has a greater angle than the taller ones.

I want low trail. Is this too much?

Not sure what that will handle like as the French short trail bikes had steeper head angles than that from what I have read. The question might get more knowledgeable response if placed in the frame builders forum.
