I'm looking to get an aero fork with the right rake for a Time Trial / short Triathlon (Olympic) bike project.
Wich angle is fine ? What's the consensus on fork rakes for TT bikes ?
The bike size is between a small and a medium, with a 76° ST angle.

Thanks for the infos !

Louis :)

You need to take into account front center and where the handlebars are. How much weight will be on the front wheel vs the rear? That can have an effect on how different HTA/Rake = Trail numbers feel.
