Give Pickard a call, I like the stance of their recent builds.

I second what bill said. Check out Pickard's threads on how to rake a frame. I think that you will like their neck rake kit as you can adjust the overall stretch and rake your self as you mock everything up.

It's not so much a wobble problem. It's when you have an emergency and need to stop fast. When the trail numbers aren't correct the back of the bike will come around on you.

If you run the prostreet kit with a 26 set up the handling is as good as a cut frame and trees, Idid alot of testing over the last 2 months with all the diffrent trees from kewlmetal and found that set up is as close to the stock handling as any.
