So what do you think of a shorter fork offset (25mm) on a 13.5 chainstay. Vs (30mm) fork offset on 13' chainstay?

Man up and get 13 mm fork offset with a 14.5 chainstay

Two totally different specs. They will not affect eachother.

I ride 13" chain stay & 25mm forks and love them both.

You switched to a shorter chainstay? I saw some of your last posts and you were something in the 13.5 range.

My United Mothership is either 13" or 13.1"(dont recall exactly) and I run my chain as tight as I can without slamming it. My frame before that was 12.7 and felt like garbage

By the way it looks, you're thinking the 25mm forks with a 13.5" cs would feel the same as a setup with 30mm forks and a 13" cs... 5mm and .5" are a but different bud. Lol

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

Yep a half inch would be 37.7mm offset. smile l don't think it would feel the same at all if that's the question.

I bet if you ride both offsets and chainstays in question neither would affect or improve your riding ability , you’re overthinking this

Going for 25mm vs 30mm fork on a 13.5in chainstay vs 13in

Depends on headtube angle. That plays a massive part in how the forks will feel, the affective toptube (rider area distance, the area between bb and grips), and the wheelbase.

Personally, I wouldn't ride anything with less than 13.5" chainstay.
But fork offset (if the headtube is the same) you'll barely notice (unless you go more extreme)

Naw you're correct?

What the fuck is that supposed to mean? I didn't say anything was incorrect except for 5mm not being equal to 0.5" becasue they're not equal...

You do realize your chainstay and forks are two different parts? What I mean by that is your bike's front and back end aren't symmetric, so it definitely isn't that simple.

5mm is a hair under 1/4" (or .196850) and .5 inch, or 1/2" if you rather is 12.70mm.

This seems all too familiar with a thread I just read...
