    32°. They were some good looking bikes. Still are but I like the older ones...before they were discontinued and reborn.

    Unless I'm mistaken a raked triple tree is not recommended if you have less than 40 deg. rake on the frame. I would do a search for that first and find out what your final Trail would be.Just my opinion. I run a 6 or 7 deg. rake trees on my hardtail,but it has a 40 deg. rake on the Paugcho frame.I did that for the Flop in low speed turns,steering.

    tourbox is right, you need to be carefull with your calculations and measurements, if you get the trail wrong the bike will never handle and feel right.
