Today i measured my Vanilla 130rlc '05: rake is about 30mm.
I suspect that it's shorter than usual but I cannot find more informations on the web.
Is there a standard for 5" forks? Does someone know the actual rake of similar forks (minute, all mountain , pike....)?

i'm sure. the fork was on the table, not on the bike. it could be 29 or 31mm, not 39mm. Does nobody know something about other forks?
9mm would affect the trail as much as a difference of 1.5° on the headtube, not a minor change.

There isn't a suspension fork on the market (that I know of) that varies from the 1.5" trail rule by more than 1-2 mm.

Some of the rake happens in the crown, so its tough to measure.
