Yes, I just re-read it last night :)
For those reading along, this one:
That'd be great if you could measure what you ended up with. That'd make a great starting point. Especially since the more I research the DRZ geometry, the more numbers I get. On the upside, I've been measuring other bikes and it seems that the rake is always* measured with the suspension fully extended. That makes things simpler. If it's true.
*well, on 3 of 3.
