So yesterday,

i met up with ChiefBD, Mao, and a long lost member Paiky. We ate, rode, laughed, sat, smoked some pole, and looked at Asian chicks out in Chinatown while sippin' on our bubble tea. In any case, i asked Mao, what does "slide the fork up to compensate" mean? They pointed fingers as to who started it (supposedly JimZX9R), but came to no conclusion. So, what does it mean?

Alright, dumbass question from a dumbass, can that be done (sliding the forks up to compensate)? I'm so lost.

Dude, call me next time you all hook up. You all can smoke your whatever while I'm in the middle of Chinatown doing my karate kid crane on a sidewalk barrier picking up hottie asian girls.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

This wasn't an all Asian outing, we DID have 1 black guy with us (he's hardly black, i just found out he doesn't like bbq'd ribs, cause it's too messy. ). We're no racers here, we allow all races to join.

i'm pretty sure that 'slide the fork tubes up to compensate' is either

a) lowers your bike, so its poser-tastic andyou have it to compensate *ahem*

or b) if you run tires up front that have a higher sidewall, 120/70 vs 120/60, so you keep the geometry of the bike the same

Seriously,

I believe its to correct the geometry from the sidewall change.

My question is: When do you do it?

#1 While you have the front tire off, and are able to move each fork individually.
Or
#2 Once the tire is remounted to the forks.


#1 would make the movement easier, but could screw up the alignment.
#2 is more difficult but maintains alignment.

Thank you. It was posted in almost every thread (even this one, thanks Dirtfucker ) and i started to wonder what exactly it meant. Thanks everyone, for uhh, your input.
