Default Re: Custom made brackets to lower and stretch a monark fork

So update I measured trail crudely and got about 5/8" I just rode it for the first time and sat on the handle bars to try to bottom it out under full compression I still had about 3/8 to 1/2 travel left to go and that's with a 2.5" hookworm which most know is a big tire. The bike actually felt like it handled around turns better. I did notice it was slightly harder to ride with no hands at very low speed which I don't usually do that's just one way I gauge how true and solid the front end is. Over all I'm very happy zero problems at all. I'm good friends with a guy that owns a tool and dye shop so full machine shop and manufacturing. I'm going to put a few more miles on mine as well as a set I made for my friend and see how they go long term and then start manufacturing them for the forum guys
