I wouldnt worry about what "race" teams are running vs. what you feel at your particular pace & equipment. Also there can be a dramatic difference in the fork setup for 2 guys of the same pace.I have my masters in engineering so I have some knowledge in the area. Is there a specific book you refer to? As with any forum, I'm trying to understand if the +5/10 front is information or misinformation. Are professional race teams also running higher in the front or is this generally accepted info on a forum (second hand knowledge)?
Any specific material suggestions is much appreciated!
