Sweet, now I either need to move to the mountains or hope that some serious "plate tectonic" movements occur to cause some damn big hills around Raleigh, NC!

I am able to run a 13 counter and stock rear and just slide the axle back. I dont buy that moving the axle back 10mm stuff about it acutally making a differance in the handeling. IMHO thats just rag mag BS. :)

Ok, then what about moving your fork tubes up 1/4" in the clamps. You buy that?

Yeas and no. moving the fork tubes changes the geometrey of the stearing and ride hight and it makes a more noticable differance to the rider, but as far as makeing a noticeable differance because of the wheel base, I dont buy it. @ 45 degrees the wheel base would change only 1/8 th of and inch for a 1/4 inch tube movement, its MUCH less for anything under 45 degrees as you approach vertical. What are dirt bikes like 14 or someting? If it was that noticable you would have radical handeling differances in the bike as the suspension moves while turning.
