    Default cabane gear

    Replacing the bungee gear with the cabane system and curious if any of you could shed light on the recommendation to have a 4 degree angle inward cant on the wheel. Thanks!

    Are you talking camber or toe?

    Toe should be 0 degrees. Camber will change on loading... In flight it will be out on the top, should be close to neutral when rolling on the ground.

    Thanks for your response. Perhaps the 4 degree camber setting is suggested to compensate when there is no load on the gear.
