    Anyone out there know a formula or rough rule of thumb for deciding fork length for different rakes?

    Thanks for that Glider, it helped. Got offered a 6" over front end at a good price and as I've only started on the frame I was wondering if it would suit my plans.

    Glide-man, you are astounding...someone said you are a mainframe in the heavily fortified vault at HDT...pounding out those responses one at a time...:newsmile057: Making a believer out of me! :newsmile026:

    Funny that how this post happens after BigHairyDog shows the vid of a guy in the"How Long a Fork is Too Long" post...you gotta love this Site! :D

    I dont care who you are, thats funny.....

    I'm guessing the wire that goes up into the ceiling is a direct feed to the nuclear power plant that is actually 20 stories above you on the surface??:bigsmiley10:
