Just curious. Would there be a difference in handling and feel between two bikes with the same trail
but say; one bike with a steep 74 degrees steer angle and a moderate forkrake and another bike with
a relaxed 69 degrees steer angle and a lot of forkrake?

Most definately. The closer to vertical, the more sensitive it is to "input" and also the easier it
is to go over it. I like a steep rake for trails -- I just learned to keep my weight back when
necessary :).

I've wondered the same thing myself. I suppose there would be a difference in weight distribution at
least, which could affect handling to some degree.
