    As folks said, if you simply mount a longer fork, you will get more rake (head tube angle to ground) and more trail. And as mentioned, raked trees are designed to bring those figures back down...

    Obvious showboating is a bit of an art, and acceptable if framed as such. Its got nothing to do with "performance" or "ridability" at that point.
