I wanted to get some thoughts on changing my fork travel and offset.

The 2019 Sensor has 130mm of travel front and back and I'm wanting a bit more travel up front.
I've determined that increasing the travel more than 10mm on the Pike 29" is probably not a great idea because it will slack the HA too much and raise the BB even more than its already relatively high measurement.

So I'm interested in getting the new Pike Ultimate for the new damper in 140mm travel. (10mm more than stock) The question is should I change the offset length? The stock Pike has 51mm offset. Should I stick with that or get the lower offset Pike (42mm for the 29ers) for a little more trail? (Which I think has the effect of slacking the HA a bit more without increasing the travel any further
