    Edit: The cad seems wrong as dimensioned. Shouldn't it be -1.25/2?, 3/4 inch since the line only goes to the center of the camber tube which is 1.25 inches in diameter.
    I guessed at the dimensions of the cambertube mounts, so you're correct, I did not spec CoG other than "H=MIN." I'm trusting TiLite's dimensions around those mounts.

    Yes, -1.25

    Today I received another CAD from TiLite. It's quite good, but two subtle issues remain: caster-to-fork mounting issues, and camber/wheel-spacing issues related to having two simultaneously mounted cambertubes. Hopefully TiLite and I will resolve them soon.

    I'm still considering ICON if TiLite does
