    1.12 radians. (64 degrees)

    i say 66 or 67 degrees
  • nicklousenicklouse Posts: 50,675 Lives Here
    66/67 deg with a 12" travel fork do you think so?

    Hmmm...

    About 20 deg :lol:

    Seriously, I'd guess at 59-61 deg.

    Who's closest?

    PS, nice bike Nicklouse.

    Where'd you get it from?

    Front wheel is a bit lower than the back in the pic so creates an illusion.

    63.7 degrees.

    Err heavy bike. some factory in Taiwan.

    Oh and 63.5deg.

    If we round to 2 SF, I was bang on.

    Woo.

    I'm a physicist dammit! I haven't used degrees for ages!
  • nicklousenicklouse Posts: 50,675 Lives Here
    and Engineers use Degrees.

    We make things you just think about them.

    Actually, I tell a lie. There's a wave equation which is used by chemists which uses degrees. It also uses fecking decimetres. At least engineers stick to SI units...
  • nicklousenicklouse Posts: 50,675 Lives Here
    I love standards.

    I hate the feekers who keep changing them or think we need new standards to replace the old standards.

    I still talk in feet, yards, inches, pounds and especially pints ;-)

    i am a right mix now. over a foot and it is imperial. less than a foot and it is metric but then it turns back to thousands of an Inch for the small stuff.

  • And i'm from the era that doesn't know what the difference is between metric and imperial :D
  • whyamiherewhyamihere Posts: 7,547
    It's not a proper unit unless it can be fully expressed as a power of 10!
  • supersonicsupersonic Posts: 82,708 Lives Here
    Can you imagine a mint metric? Yuk.

    whats this Power of 10?

    8/12/16/32ths yes but 10?

    Metres = 1
    km = 1x10^3
    mm = 1x10^-3

    It's so simple!
  • Chaz.HardingChaz.Harding Posts: 3,144
    :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    +1 for mint metrics.

    :lol:

    Although imperial does have it's uses (steam engines, old Massey Furgerson tractors etc).

    Also, people who are coincidentally from the Jurassic era use imperial measurements, right Nicklouse?

    :wink::lol:

    PS, please don't kick me off bikeradar!! :oops:

    I'm a bit of a Fred Dibnah fan!

    And Keith Floyd - 'cook at wood mark 6'!

    i would let Sonic do that.

    And i would never ban anyone for a personal attack, on the forum, against me.

    I real life i would just sit on them. :wink:

    Haha. You can't be that massive as to cause injury to me. I have 'fights' with one of my 21stone friends. (Needless to say, he's NOT a biker, haha)

    You can't weigh more than 21 stone!! Besides, you'd have to catch me first! :wink:

    And I was only joking!! I still use inches (albeit in thousand'ths) at work using vernier calipers. Yes, I am only 20, and I use inches.

    And yes, my argument is now void... :oops:
