Yes, I've searched and read everything I could find on mtbr and off. But I wanted to throw out some specific numbers and see if what I'm thinking makes sense.
I have a Niner Sir9 that currently has the Niner rigid steel fork on it. According to a Niner, it is suspension corrected for an 80mm travel fork. The Niner site says that the head angle at 80mm is 71.3. I'm looking at a g2 fork with 100mm travel. Niner says that with a 100mm fork, the HA is 70.3. So using the calculator at Bicycle Trail Calculator | yojimg.net with those head angles and offsets, a 100mm g2 fork and an 80mm fork with 45mm offset have virtually the same trail and wheel flop. Does that mean that a 100mm g2 will have similar handling characteristics as an 80mm standard fork, taking into account, of course, that one is rigid and the other is suspended?
