@WAKIdesigns: increasing offset reduces the trail. Decreasing the offset increases the trail - hence Transition decreasing the offset to increase trail and therefore stability.

Bigger offset reduces trail and so lightens the steering. The bigger wheel radius increases trail if all else stays the same, so the different offsets on the 27.5 vs 29 castings are presumably to keep steering response similar between the two wheel size options. Not sure that too much is being made of this though, as it looks like offset has been dramatically reduced on the crowns and increased at the dropouts. Net offset may be nothing wild?

Nope - far eastern built trading off UK brand heritage.

Now THAT Was a Bike: Bontrager Race Lite
@vernonfelton: A follow up article would be great. Loved the fact that he actually thought about the product as a complete bike rather than a stand alone frame whereas many others thought only about what colour of paint they’d use on their cookie cutter stuff.

The gussets on early BMXs were more often than not poorly designed and resulted in stress risers rather than strengthening the Bikes. Look at BMXs now - they pretty much all use Bonty’s open ended gusset design that redistributes loads. Also surprised that the article doesn’t mention the fact that Bonty was the first to mess with custom fork offsets.
