Lowering the rear vs trail

It would decrease trail, lowering would bring the back forward brining it closer to the front axle (the alxe being the pivot) but it wouldn't make a difference because the decrease in height gets less as it gets closer to the front, so at the neck, (where you start your trail calc) if you dropped the rear 2 inches, it's not a 2" drop/rotation at the neck.

With a drawing program you can work out the degree change, over the distance of the bike I think it would be a few mils
