    So I've gotten a bit curious about front end heights. Just popped into my head since I just changed forks. I'm wondering what everyone's front end height is.. Measured from the *highest point on the bars to the ground*.
    Thanks to anyone willing to bust out the tape measure.

    :ugh:


    thats a great way to figure out the front end height...especially since every single trials rider has an identical bar set up.

    My real front end height is 38"

    Aye, agreed with that. Would probably do better to set the bike against a wall as close to vertical as possible and measure to the top of the grip, mid-point where your hand rests.

    But with that babble, I don't even have a tape, so I can't help ya with the numbers gathering.

    yes crash- thats what would make hte most sense...unless you guys don't have bars on your bikes, and you hold it by the stem clamp??

    Make sure the bike isn't laying over or anything.
