Anyone know the stock rake angle on a G15?

Also, how it measures referenced against the bottom frame rails?

Thanx in advance...

You need to be careful here, the duplex frame (twin downtube) uses different stem and crown (tripleclamps) to previous frames and I think it was to change the rake angle, the stem and stanchions may not be parallel.

That's not a worry at all. I have a previously chopped/raked frame that I've cut the unbelievably bodged neck off of, and obtained a decent clean neck that I intend to weld back on in it's place.

Since it will never be original or correct, it's not an issue. I just want it to be CLOSE to the original rake angle, so that it doesn't sit too weird.

YES, I KNOW, if I don't use original forks and/or yokes, it won't matter anyway.
