    Frame geometry question : 4 OUT, 0 UP, what does this mean?

    I got a frame geometry question.
    Prompted by Huges pre-build thread(s), I started looking at rolling chassis, and I come across these specs:
    0 Up
    4 Out
    32 Rake (I know about rake, trail, and offset)

    What are these UP and OUT measurments?

    Thanks,
    Larry

    I wanted to ask my wife about this but thought she would be linking this to the male anatomy of an old fart like me so i let it go...

    normally when they talk about up and out , up is the height of the steerer tube above standard and out is like how far its stretched forwards .
    but you need to know what frame the chassis is based on for those figures to make sense .....
    never knowingly understood................
