Can anybody help me out and tell me the offset/rake on a powerlite fork? Also is the base of the crown supposed to be completely flat or are the parts that clamp the legs meant to be angled forward a little? I have a fork which looks to me like its been landed a bit hard and has bent the legs forward increasing the rake, I am struggling to find any decent info on the interweb
Its the version with the slimmer crown by the way.

in the mean time stick some pictures up.

It is flat at the bottom and the rake is done at the steerer.
Much the same as a Rockshox MAG setup (they are all based around the Bontrager crown system)
